Never-Ending Quest!
Dubin Clark, via an affiliated investment vehicle,
announces the successful sale of Quest Events


Dubin Clark, via an affiliated investment vehicle and in partnership with Gemini Investors and Harbert Mezzanine Partners, is pleased to announce the successful sale of Quest Events, LLC to Goldner Hawn Johnson & Morrison and Tonka Bay Equity Partners in partnership with Quest management, led by CEO and Founder Lee Dunlap.

"We were excited to enter into a partnership with Quest in 2011," said Brent Paris, who lead the transaction. "Together with management, we were successful in opening four new locations and closing six add-on acquisitions in less than four years. Having exceeded our growth objectives, we felt the time had come to find another partner for the company."

"When Brent reached out to me I was skeptical, as I received calls about selling the business all the time," said Lee Dunlap, founder of Quest. "But Brent's industry expertise was impressive. In the end, he delivered on exactly what was promised - including dramatic growth."

Quest Events, founded in 1998, and headquartered in Frisco, TX, is a leading provider of premium drapery, staging, scenic and furniture for the events industry, with 16 locations across the country. Quest's modern product selection, unparalleled customer service, and large quantities ensure a successful event no matter what the scale.
