Monarch, in partnership with Monarch CEO Brian Helgoe and Signature General Manager William Bailey, acquired Signature’s assets on May 1. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Helgoe is a ValleyCrest and McKinsey & Co. alum with more than 20 years of landscape industry experience. Until last year he served as vice president of the Mountain and Northeast regions for ValleyCrest Landscape Maintenance.

The company is actively seeking acquisition opportunities in Washington, Oregon and California.

“Monarch represents an opportunity for One Rock to invest in a highly fragmented industry with attractive dynamics and growth opportunities,” One Rock Managing Partner Tony Lee said.
