JACKSON, Wyo. — Greybull Stewardship (“Greybull”), a private investment firm of experienced operators dedicated to helping small, growing businesses realize their full potential, today announced its acquisition of RTCM Holdings (“RTCM”), a family of textile recycling and distribution companies. Financial terms were not disclosed. Additionally, Greybull has named Craig McAndrews as CEO of RTCM.

I look forward to collaborating with the Greybull team to harness the growth opportunities that are ahead.”

To date, Greybull has focused primarily on investing in companies within business services, franchising, education, and SaaS, though the firm also has a successful track record applying its strategy of adding operational expertise to small businesses across other sectors.
