Fusion Risk Management Announces Strategic Growth Investment from Great Hill Partners
Fusion Risk Management, Inc. (“Fusion” or the “Company”), a leading provider of cloud-based operational resilience, business continuity, and risk management software and services, today announced a strategic growth investment from Great Hill Partners, a leading growth-oriented private equity firm. The majority investment will allow Fusion to enhance its go-to-market and product innovation capabilities, while continuing to accelerate the pursuit of several attractive organic and inorganic growth opportunities. Existing investor Vista Equity Partners (“Vista”) will remain a significant minority shareholder in Fusion, along with Catalyst Investors and Level Equity Management. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Fusion has grown rapidly in recent years as organizations in regulated and non-regulated end markets shift from reactive approaches to proactive, real-time frameworks that unite risk across employees, third parties, processes, and technologies. The Company’s leading platform empowers its diverse base of 400+ blue chip customers with the knowledge and workflows they need to better mitigate threats, minimize downtime, maintain operational resilience, and sustain critical operations in the face of unexpected crises such as pandemics, geopolitical events, natural disasters, cyber-attacks, and more.
“As the risk landscape continues to evolve, now more than ever businesses need an agile and flexible operational resilience framework to navigate disruption and drive sustainable growth," said Michael Campbell, CEO of Fusion Risk Management. “Today’s milestone is a testament to Fusion’s capabilities in delivering data-driven, actionable insights that enable customers to develop dynamic plans and proactively address the risks and disruptions that have become ‘business as usual.’ We’re confident that Great Hill will be an invaluable partner as we leverage their deep industry expertise and resources to further unlock the potential of our platform and accelerate our mission to make true business resiliency a reality.”
“Fusion is a clear leader in the risk management space, driving unparalleled value for its customers by providing them with the comprehensive tools they need to become more aware, prepared, and resilient,” said Chris Busby, Managing Director at Great Hill. “The Company fits the exact profile of the type of business we aim to invest in: high-growth companies that are driving transformative change in their industries. Leveraging our significant software and growth-investment experience, Fusion has tremendous potential to capitalize on opportunities ahead amid significant compliance and regulatory tailwinds and to continue deepening its strong, longstanding customer relationships. We’re excited to partner with Michael, the entire management team, and Vista to strengthen Fusion’s position at the forefront of operational resilience and risk management software.”
“Since our partnership began, Fusion and Vista have been focused on transforming the Company into a leading platform through product innovation and scaling its go-to-market capabilities to meet customers’ growing demand to build resilient organizations,” said René Yang Stewart, Co-Head of Vista’s Endeavor Fund and Senior Managing Director. “We are thrilled to continue this momentum by welcoming Great Hill Partners and embarking on the next chapter of Fusion’s growth trajectory.”
In addition to Fusion Risk Management, Great Hill Partners' portfolio of enterprise software companies includes eloomi, BigChange, Auvik, Varicent, Totango, and Intapp, among several others. Prior software investments include Reflexis Systems, Reward Gateway, PlanSource, ZoomInfo, and more.
