Announcing an Investment Partnership with BV Investment Partners
For two and a half decades, PixelMEDIA Co-founders Erik Dodier, Chief Executive Officer and Thomas Obrey, Chief Technology Officer, have been striving to be the smartest digital company for lifestyle brands.
Pixel helps lifestyle brands launch, manage, and grow their ecommerce on Salesforce. This focus of expertise has forged relationships with top lifestyle brand clients including, Vince., Samsonite, Skechers, The Company Store, and Metallica. Pixel is ready to grow the next level of that strategy.
“We began to focus Pixel on digital commerce and Salesforce around 2015, and since then we’ve continued to attract top talent, align with great brands and achieve tremendous joint success. We have ambitious goals for the next chapter of growth at Pixel, including ramping up investments in our team and capabilities – and in BV we’ve found a like-minded partner who understands our business and can help support these goals,” explains, Dodier.
BV Investment Partners is one of the oldest and most experienced sector-focused private equity firms in North America that actively targets investments in the business services, software, and IT Services industries.
Sean Wilder, Managing Director at BV, added, “We see in Pixel a lot of the same attractive market and business attributes of other successful BV investments within Cloud and IT services. Pixel has built and oriented its team, expertise and reputation around a leading, enterprise-grade platform and plays a critical role as partners to its customers and in its customers’ own ongoing success with digital commerce. We’re excited to partner with Erik, Thomas, and the broader Pixel team and look forward to contributing toward future growth.”
Dodier and Obrey will continue their roles and maintain a significant ownership interest in partnership with BV.
Matthew Kinsey, Senior Managing Director at BV, said, “Pixel falls squarely within BV’s sector focus and experience and we’re fortunate to be partnered with two strong founders. Erik and TJ have established Pixel as a leader in this market, delivering value to its customers in a critical and growing part of their businesses. We’re excited to work with the Pixel team and continue to build and grow the business in the years to come.”
As Pixel continues the velocity of growth for ecommerce on Salesforce, they aim to become a true multi-cloud integrated agency fueling customer engagements for brands around the world.
