The Integritus Group, a loss prevention and regulatory compliance firm, has announced the acquisition of LPM Media Group, the industry-leading communications company specializing in digital, mobile, and print awareness and e-learning solutions for retailers, loss prevention executives, and law enforcement.
Founded in 1999, LPM Media Group has established itself as a results-driven team of subject matter experts and a collective of former retailers, loss prevention executives, and marketing and technology professionals. With an executive team that has worked with leaders across nearly every major retailer in the US and globally, LPM Media Group excels at developing and delivering effective communication solutions to educate and engage a distributed workforce.
“We are excited to add a full suite of custom digital, mobile, and print communication solutions to our service offerings,” said Integritus Group VP of Business Development Kevin O’Brien. “We’ve known the team at LPM Media Group for a long time. We’ve collaborated, celebrated successes together, and with this acquisition, it elevates our standard awareness programs to much more vibrant, professional, dynamic, and cutting-edge communication and training solutions.”
Jim Lee, founder of LPM Media Group, said, “We’re thrilled to become a part of the Integritus family. This move will enable us to scale our innovative solutions and reach new heights in the industry.” Lee will continue as a senior business consultant.
Kevin McMenimen, formerly the chief operating officer, will now elevate to president of the LPM Media Group as a new division of SEMM Holdings, the parent company of the Integritus Group. He has led LPM Media Group for ten years and prior to that served as President of Verisk Crime Analytics, the successor to Enabl-u Technologies and Learn it Solutions, which were both founded by McMenimen and acquired by Verisk Analytics.
Lee and McMenimen are also co-founders of the Loss Prevention Foundation and actively serve on the Board of Directors for the non-profit organization dedicated to education and the advancement of the retail loss prevention profession.
“The acquisition of LPM Media Group will enable The Integritus Group to expand its offerings and provide more value-added services to its clients,” McMenimen said. “Moreover, it opens the door to new market opportunities and strengthens the company’s leadership position in the industry. With so much professional respect for the team at Integritus and appreciation of all they have accomplished in the industry, we are excited to be a part of this combined organization, where we will accomplish so much more together.”
