Excellere Announces Partnership with Proven Behavioral Health Executive Martin Favis

DENVER--()--Excellere Partners, a Denver-based private equity firm focused on partnering with entrepreneurs to create industry leaders has teamed up with Martin Favis a recognized behavioral health operator to pursue a buy-and-build strategy in attractive mental health sectors.

Martin Favis, a 23-year veteran of the behavioral health industry, has a track record of success and achievement in both public and private equity sponsored environments, particularly in leading multi-site and multi-state operations. Notably, Mr. Favis has significant experience in corporate development activities through over 20 M&A transactions and integrations throughout his career. Mr. Favis previously held senior executive roles with Embassy Management, The Duvall Home, Providence Service Corporation and Camelot Care.

According to Mr. Favis, “The continued ills of society suggest strong demand for reputable mental health service providers that are focused on doing things the right way. There is a tremendous unmet need for strong clinical providers truly focused on improving patient care and meeting the expectations of patients and family members who are seeking providers that will treat their loved ones with compassion and a commitment to effective treatment. Excellere and I look forward to identifying businesses to partner with that can benefit from additional resources such as investments in clinical support, staff training and operational excellence in order to expand the overall impact from reputable providers.”

Matt Hicks, Partner at Excellere stated, “We developed our investment thesis within behavioral health due to the strong value proposition opportunity amongst patients, family members, clinicians, referral sources, government agencies and payers. That, combined with increasing social acceptance for those seeking treatment, a supportive legislative and payer environment to help improve care and outcomes, and significant market fragmentation, suggest an appealing framework to build an attractive market leader in many of the behavioral segments we pursue.”
