Company Overview At A Glance Investment Philosophy Investment Parameters Our Team Portfolio Companies

Formerly Lund Van Dyke,Inc., Caravel Autism Health is a regional leader of pediatric therapy services based in Wisconsin, with a growing presence in the North and Northwestern Chicago suburbs, utilizing applied behavior analysis (ABA) to treat children with autism or similar developmental disorders.  The majority of services are delivered in the patient’s home with three office locations used as hubs for clinical staff. The Company is led by two experienced clinicians with stellar reputations in their field and who maintain a strong  commitment to the quality of their services.  LVDI’s founding principals, Eric Lund and Christopher Van Dyke, started the Company in  November 2009 and have since expanded to three offices covering the majority of the state of Wisconsin, making it one of its two largest  providers of behavioral therapy.
How We Treat Autism.  Our therapists create family-focused learning experiences for every child within the day-to-day life of their own home.  It is our way of helping a child gain new skills in a comfortable, loving place.  Our therapists also coordinate community assistance, school consultation, and other supports to help each child with autism use new skills in social situations.

Our Philosophy.   Our therapy model—Applied Behavior Analysis—involves studying how a child with autism reacts to his or her environment. We then create outcomes that lead to preferred behavior.  It may not be unusual for our therapists to spend 30-35 hours with your child in a week. We devote that much time because we want to help your child reach his fullest potential.

FIMC – Financial Insurance Management Corporation
Since 1974, FIMC has been recognized as an industry leader committed in offering innovative products through financial institutions. With corporate offices located in Sarasota, Florida, FIMC's high performance standards carry through in the exceptional staff we employ.

As financial industries have evolved, demand continually surfaces for new products to meet the changing needs of consumers. Today, the FIMC primary product lines are:  

  • The Home & Auto Security Plan: A premium membership product offering an all-encompassing product suite of savings and discounts for your home, auto, health, and travel needs.
  • The American Traveler Motor Club: A traditional auto club membership program geared for resale by automotive aftermarket retailers.
  • The Auto Plus Plan: An automotive motor club membership that offers a value based product suite of everyday discounts and services with a twist.

FIMC has earned a reputation for trust, service and expertise in marketing affinity membership programs that meet compliance requirements throughout the Unites States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

The Company’s memberships are typically sold by a financial institution as an optional add on to a personal loan; the Company does not sell memberships through the auto loan channel. Memberships can be financed as part of the loan, but the Company is paid in full at the time of sale by the lender, minus a commission. The Company assumes no credit or default risk.  Membership lengths range from six months to ten years, with an average of 2.8 years, and are renewable upon their expiration. 

FIMC currently has over 600,000 active memberships and sells about 1,000 memberships through its financial institution client relationships.  Some of FIMC’s financial company clients, including the Company’s largest, have been offering the Company’s memberships to their customers since the 1980s.  The Company becomes assimilated into the client and develops long term relationships through product integration, initial and ongoing training, real time IT reporting and commission tracking.  For the financial company client, the commissions generated by the sale of the FIMC’s suite of products are effectively pure profit.

MST Services

Gold-standard evaluations of MST Services research made it evident that the evidence-based therapy should be taken from academia and science journals into the real world.

However, to get the good results of MST therapy with juvenile offenders, the treatment method has to be vigorously followed. MST is a complex intervention that combines aspects of cognitive, behavioral and family therapies.The mental health work force is made up of individuals with many different educational and professional backgrounds, and most of them do not have training in all of these therapies.

Therapists and agencies who want to practice MST can’t just be handed an “instruction manual” and sent out to find youths about to board the bus to juvenile facilities, not if the therapists are going to be effective. They need to be well prepared.

With that in mind, the Medical University of South Carolina licensed MST Services in 1996 to disseminate MST technologies. For more than a decade, MST Services has been training therapists in MST, and surrounding them and their supervisors with support, resources and ongoing coaching.

The overriding goal of MST, its prime directive, is to keep adolescents who have exhibited serious clinical problems—drug abuse, violence, severe emotional disturbance—at home, in school and out of trouble. To reach this goal, MST Services helps providers stay true to the model.

What does MST Services provide?

MST Services works with agencies in states and countries that strive to keep juveniles who have repeatedly gotten into serious trouble from being put in out-of-home placements. It helps organizations and service systems structure a system within which MST programs will be faithfully carried out. Studies have shown that straying from the model translates into poorer results.

In addition to training, MST services supplies assistance in:

  • Budgeting and business planning
  • Hiring
  • Record-keeping
  • Reducing staff attrition
  • Quality assurance
  • Marketing and public relations

Because MST is not a “learn it and do it for the rest of your life” approach, the continuing support that MST Services provides is crucial to the success of programs. Results are tracked and collectively shared with the greater MST professional community. Therapists working with these very challenging youths and families receive constant feedback, coaching and training.

Out of Home America was one of GMP's first Search Fund investments, for which we participated in a substantial way, both as investors and as a member of the Board of Directors. OOHA was founded in 1983 as New England Outdoor Advertising. From the start, the OOHA premise was simple: help our clients find the easiest, most efficient way to plan, purchase, and produce out-of-home media. Today, OOHA  represents over 100 outdoor companies throughout the U.S. and Canada. OOHA has executed out of home campaigns in 46 states, 10  countries, and 5 continents from offices in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Hartford,  purchasing over $1bil in OOH media for our partners. We help our agency and client partners navigate the complex and fragmented world of out-of-home advertising.

In 2015 GMP successfully monetized and exited the investment, providing a significant return to its partnership.
