“Working with Banyan to buy Purity Life in 2012 was one of the best decisions I have made in my career. Over the past 10 years, Banyan has been a great partner both to me as a shareholder and to our business as a whole. I continue to be impressed by their commitment to operational excellence, leadership development and performance improvement.”
