CCG Advisors Completes Sale of The Green Plan to The Brickman Group

January 27, 2010

CCG Advisors today announced the acquisition of its client The Green Plan, a Broomfield, Colorado based commercial landscaping service provider, by The Brickman Group. Jeff Pope, the owner of The Green Plan, was represented by CCG Advisors, a merger and acquisition firm based in Atlanta specializing in the sale of green industry businesses.

“I realized that in order to grow the company further, it meant either retooling the business model completely or partnering with a larger company,” explains Pope.  “In my search for that partner, I found Brickman was the absolute best fit for my people and my customers.  From a service perspective, it just made sense.  Brickman’s culture matches our own, and the company brings processes and resources that will enable my team to continue to grow, while providing unparalleled service to our clients.”

CCG Advisors worked closely with teams from Brickman and The Green Plan to facilitate the partnership between the two.  “I could never have gotten this deal done without the guys at CCG” says Pope. “They helped me understand what my business was worth, what all my alternatives were and then ran a process to find the best fit for me, my employees and all our valued clients.  The amount of time and energy they put in and the benefit I got from their experience and contacts in the industry allowed me to continue to run my business and ensure that I got the best deal possible.”

While both The Green Plan and Brickman have enjoyed a substantial presence in Denver and surrounding areas, the acquisition will enable Brickman to become the market leader in commercial landscaping services from Boulder to Colorado Springs.   

“We’re excited to have The Green Plan’s team join our Colorado operations,” says Mike Bogan, Brickman’s Senior Vice President.  “I am confident that Jeff Pope and his leadership team, working alongside our current Brickman team members, will help establish Brickman as the market leader and provider of choice in commercial landscape management in Colorado.”  

“My team and I are excited to become a part of Brickman,” continues Pope.  “With no clear market leader up until now, this will make us the largest, best equipped commercial landscape maintenance organization in the state.  We’re looking forward to continuing to create curb appeal, and add value to our clients’ properties, and ultimately improving the quality of life that we all enjoy in beautiful Colorado.”
