Riverside held Neighborly for over three years, but was no stranger to the company, having been majority owners once before, from 2003-2010.
Just as they did during the first hold period, Riverside made heavy investments to source, complete and integrate add-ons to Neighborly. Riverside also boosted Neighborly’s management team with a new general counsel, CFO, chief strategy and marketing offices and European manager. This helped drive organic growth and ensure smooth add-ons throughout the hold.
