Atlanta, GA (June 21, 2019) – MSouth Equity Partners, an Atlanta-based private equity firm, announced the closing of its newest investment.  In partnership with the company’s management team, MSouth completed the acquisition of BIG Language Solutions (“BIG”).

Anthony Hauser, an MSouth Principal, said, “We are excited to partner with industry veteran Jeff Brink and fully support his vision to launch and build BIG Language Solutions. We believe the company is well positioned to capitalize on increasing demand for translation, interpretation, and related language services, particularly for high value content within regulated verticals.”
