YOUNG & Associates expands footprint with acquisition of IN-Line Consulting
In a strategic move aimed at bolstering its national and international presence, property and claims consultants YOUNG & Associates (YA) have announced their acquisition of IN-Line Consulting, LLC. Founded over 16 years ago by Matt Watson and Mark Lively, IN-Line Consulting emerged to manage consulting endeavors within a full-service restoration company, primarily serving the Southeastern United States. This acquisition solidifies YOUNG & Associates’ position as an industry leader and strengthens their footprint in the southeastern region.
Under the new arrangement, IN-Line will function as a subsidiary of YOUNG & Associates, maintaining its day-to-day operations under the skilled guidance of its existing leadership team. The dedicated management and support personnel at IN-Line will also remain unchanged, ensuring a seamless transition.
YOUNG & Associates CEO, Wade Bushman, highlighted the significance of this partnership, stating, “This collaboration with IN-Line represents a substantial leap forward in expanding our professional service offerings. We highly value IN-Line’s diverse pool of technical experts, their exceptional customer service track record, alignment in cultural values, and commitment to an employee-centric workplace model. They are a natural addition to the YA family.”
Matt Watson, President of IN-Line, emphasized that this union with YOUNG & Associates would enable them to enhance client service by augmenting their resource base and extending their capabilities on a national and international scale. Additionally, it opens up new avenues for both personal and professional growth for the dedicated employees of IN-Line.
“Since our inception, we have dedicated ourselves to building an exceptional team and fostering a culture that can cater to the diverse needs of our clients,” said Watson. “Now, with the resources and platform offered by YA, we are excellently positioned to uphold that commitment well into the future.”
The acquisition marks a significant milestone for both companies, heralding a promising chapter of growth and expansion in their respective fields of expertise.
