Inc. has named ODP a “2022 Inc. Power Partner”
Oaklins DeSilva+Phillips is pleased to announce that we have been selected by Inc. as a 2022 Inc. Power Partner. This honor is awarded in recognition of our commitment to going above and beyond in our service to founders, entrepreneurs and CEOs. ODP was selected as part of the Financial Products & Services category and was the only investment bank chosen in 2022. Other 2022 Inc. Power Partner winners included Oracle NetSuite (software), EOS Worldwide (business products and services) and Insperity (human resources), among others.
This honor comes as Inc. Business Media announced their inaugural Power Partner Awards honorees on November 1. Scott Omelianuk, Inc.’s Editor-in-Chief, explained the selection process, as follows:
We received thousands of applications for the Power Partner Awards, and companies that rose to the top of our rankings shared remarkable dedication. Our methodology included surveys of your clients, publicly available information, social listening, and other metrics that our data scientists believe separate the best from the rest. We recognized firms big and small, but all stood out as reliable partners that care as much for a client’s business as they do for their own.
Being named for this prestigious award comes just a few months after ODP was awarded the M&A Atlas Publishing & Media Deal of the Year by Global M&A Network for our sale of Workman Publishing to Hachette Book Group. The independent organization exclusively honors the best value-creating deals, outstanding firms, and distinguished dealmakers from the mid-market.
Reed Phillips, CEO of ODP, said, “We greatly appreciate this recognition from Inc. They are champions of the dynamic and entrepreneurial businesses that we represent. Over the years we have sold many companies that were ranked among their prestigious Inc. 5000 list, and we are honored to be included in such distinguished company.”
