Private equity firm Crestview Partners reveals that it has made an investment of an undisclosed size in Digicomm International, the Colorado-based broadband distributor and value-added reseller. As part of the transaction, John Schanz, former network director at Comcast Cable, will join Digicomm’s board of directors along with founder Rob Donziger as well as Crestview’s Brian Cassidy and Ben Rhyne.
Donziger, who retains his role as CEO, founded Digicomm in 1993. It provides equipment and services to the global broadband market, supporting both hybrid fiber/coax and all-fiber architectures (see, e.g. , “DZS taps Digicomm International as Broadband, 5G product partner”).
“We are thrilled to have Crestview as a partner for this next phase of Digicomm’s growth and evolution,” said Donziger. “Our goal of delivering industry-leading products and services to our customers efficiently is unwavering, and we look forward to having the scale and additional operational resources needed to continue these efforts. We are proud of the results we have achieved over the past 28 years and believe Crestview’s investment will enable us to build significantly as we plan for the future.
Crestview has previously invested in broadband-related companies such as Congruex, WOW!, Charter Communications, Insight Communications, Interoute Communications and OneLink Communications. “We are delighted to partner with Rob Donziger and the talented management team at Digicomm,” commented Brian Cassidy, Co-President and Head of Media at Crestview. “We believe Crestview can support Digicomm’s growth through organic investments and mergers and acquisitions to expand the company’s range of product and service offerings while continuing to serve as a value-added partner for its customers in the evolving broadband and communications industries.
