Grand Rapids-based CGI Design Agency Think Chromatic, LLC, acquired by an Individual Investor!

Calder Capital is pleased to announce that Grand Rapids, MI-based Think Chromatic, LLC, has been acquired by Individual Investor, Matt Emery.

After nearly 15 years working in the 3D industry, Jay Hoelscher decided that he was ready to pursue other interests, including potentially returning to his roots as a university instructor in 3D design and animation. Jay was very pleased with the smooth transition, stating, “the efficiency and transparency throughout the entire sale process surpassed my expectations. Within the first week of being on the market over 20 qualified parties had expressed interest in the business. Calder did a great job of coordinating and managing the process. We launched onto the market in late October and despite the hurdles of the holidays and government shutdown, we were able to get the deal done in less than 3 months!”

The Individual Investor acquiring Think Chromatic, Matt Emery, is eager to continue the success that the company has achieved thus far. “After months of searching, I definitely found the perfect business! I look forward to continuing Think Chromatic’s fast-paced growth and working in a team of talented individuals. I see a great opportunity to grow the business and look forward to continuing the legacy that Jay established!”
