Our Perspective

Luke Webb, Managing Director at Lincoln, commented, “4M’s ability to continuously innovate with high-touch and localized services is a true differentiator in the industry and a key driver of recurring revenue. The company operates in a fragmented market providing an excellent foundation to execute a successful buy-and-build strategy in additional to compelling organic growth.”
