LOS ANGELES, Calif., United States, 18-Nov-2020 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Visual Data Media Services, a leading entertainment services company serving studios and distributors globally with end-to-end content management and digital media supply chain solutions, announced today it will partner with Endeavour Capital, a mid-market investment firm, to support Visual Data’s next phase of growth. John Trautman, founder and CEO and Symon Roue, managing director of the company’s European division, will remain shareholders and will continue to lead the company with the current management team.

Since its founding in 1995 in Burbank, CA, Visual Data has grown organically and through acquisitions. The company offers media supply chain and localization services on a global basis, with operations in the US, UK, and India. In recent years, as content production needs and direct-to-consumer digital entertainment offerings such as Netflix, Disney+, Apple+ continue to grow, Visual Data has been recognized as an industry leader for its outstanding customer service and innovative technology. For the second year in a row, the company won the prestigious Netflix Preferred Fulfillment Partner of the Year – Americas (high volume), improving their on-time rate by +4%.

With Endeavour Capital’s support, Visual Data’s management will build on its industry leadership, capitalize on entertainment industry digital trends, and continue the company’s current momentum with further investments in its service offerings, expansion of its global footprint and strategic acquisitions.

“I’m excited about this next chapter, we have built a great foundation and are ready to build on that to create something game-changing for our industry,” said Trautman. “This is a booming time for entertainment, our clients’ needs are growing, and we are well-positioned to meet those needs. We will continue to expand services to provide a true end-to-end solution for our clients, as well as focused development of our Vida content management service.”

“We chose Endeavour Capital as a highly aligned partner to invest in Visual Data, due to their fantastic reputation, and long-term approach to investing,” said Roue. “The team is looking forward to scaling our presence in new territories, entering new markets and investing in our new technology platform.”

To accelerate the Visual Data’s next stage of growth, Henry Shapiro will join the company’s board of directors as Lead Director. Shapiro is also Chairman of MarketCast, a global entertainment research and analytics company.

“I’m looking forward to working with John and his team to support the Company’s ambitious growth plans, said Shapiro. “As an industry leader, Visual Data is well positioned to take full advantage of the strong dynamics underlying this growing sector of the entertainment economy.”

Leland Jones of Endeavor Capital said “Endeavour is very excited to be investing in the Visual Data team. The company has a great foundation and reputation for service quality and we want to help them build on that through innovation and investments in new capabilities.”
