InStar’s majority owners, private equity firm BlackEagle Partners LLC supported the company’s entrance into Birmingham, Michigan as well as the acquisition of B. Poole Restoration in New York and now Horizon.

“Partnering with successful entrepreneurs like Derrick Hall is important as InStar continues its expansion efforts into one of the nation’s leading disaster restoration firms,” said Jason Runco, Partner of BlackEagle.
