Josh Skelly of Cavan Legacy acquired both entities, Urban Insight and Planetizen, and will be operating the entities. Mr. Skelly plans to continue the delivery of customer-focused web design and development services the firms’ customers have enjoyed and relied upon for more than 20 years since the firm’s inception by Chris Steins.
Chris Davidson, Transaction Support, commented “Chris Steins and Josh Skelly were an obvious immediate strategic fit and held similar cultural values. The pair collaborated together throughout the course of the deal to overcome obstacles, and Benchmark looks forward to the synergies provided by Cavan Legacy Partners and Urban Insight/Planetizen moving forward.”
