SurveyHealthcare acquires OMR Globus

Healthcare M&A News North America

US – Healthcare data collection firm SurveyHealthcare (SHC) has bought full-service, data collection agency OMR Globus for an undisclosed amount.

Founded in 2012, OMR Globus has offices in Canada and Europe and offers data collection services in healthcare to market research agencies, independent consultants, and other data collection firms.

SHC will integrate OMR Globus’ team of 15 experienced healthcare project managers into its existing global operations, doubling its European-based project management staff. The combined staff will be led by SHC founder and CEO, Jerry Arbittier, with OMR Globus’ founding partner, Damir Fazlic, remaining with the firm.

Arbittier said: “Having a fully-integrated global offering is the mark of a truly sophisticated data collection agency, but requires years of strategic vision, investment, and dedication to get there. With the addition of OMR Globus, SurveyHealthcare will now have even greater access to international resources, which leaves SHC better positioned to service the full breadth of our client’s needs.”

Fazlic added: “Our vision for OMR Globus has always focused on providing the broadest, full-service data collection capabilities available anywhere in the world. SurveyHealthcare is a premier supplier in our space. I am excited to remain onboard as part of the leadership team, as I know both sides share the same core values and focus that will drive continued success.”
