Wind Point acquired Vertex in August 2021. Our value creation plan consists of new client growth initiatives, expanding its expert resource network and executing strategic acquisitions.

Wind Point acquired Vertex in partnership with its founding management team including Bill McConnell, Jim O’Brien and Jeff Picard. Founded in 1995 as an East Coast-focused construction consulting firm, Vertex has grown into a national platform offering full-service expert solutions for clients across a diverse range of industries. In March 2024, Vertex announced the appointment of Bill McConnell, PE, MSCE, JD (former CEO) to the position of Board Chair and the appointment of David Tortorello PE as its new Chief Executive Officer. David brings 35 years of experience in the global construction disputes industry to Vertex. Most recently, he served as Vice Chairman at Ankura and prior to that he was the General Manager of the $325 million Disputes, Forensics and Legal Technology segment at Navigant, where he built and grew the division globally.
