In celebration of the manliest of facial features, the men of Ethos will be growing out their moustaches (or at least trying to) in celebration of Movember. Ethos will also be making a donation to the Movember Foundation to support their important work. The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

Ethos Risk Services announces new partnership
ST. PETERSBURG, FL — Ethos Risk Services LLC, a Florida-based risk mitigation company, announced here Thursday a business partnership with Roland Equity Partners designed to benefit the ERS client base and workforce.
Ethos, which celebrated its nine-year anniversary in June, has grown from a regional firm to a worldwide investigative enterprise now conducting business across the nation and in over 50 countries. Initially specializing in surveillance and background files pertaining to workers compensation assignments, Ethos now manages security and brand protection, SIU services, litigation support, data support, adjusting, and pre-employment screening divisions that serve a diverse range of customers.
Roland has offices in California and Utah. Featuring entrepreneurs and operating executives who focus on middle market companies, Roland provides resources to assist its clients in advancing their ventures to the next level. According to Ethos president and founder Ed Cotilla, the decision to partner with Roland was a blending of like minds and ideas.
“We are thrilled about the partnership with Roland Equity,” said Cotilla. “During our discussions it was apparent that both our short-term and long-term goals aligned perfectly. This partnership allows us to continue our strong organic growth while at the same time continuing to focus on providing the best customer service and quality our customers have come to expect from Ethos.
“This is an exceptional opportunity to generate significant value over a reasonable period of time for both our employees and clients.”
Cotilla stressed that Ethos employees and clients will see benefits, not bumps, from this partnership. Cotilla will remain as president, continue with his day-to-day involvement, and serve as a board member to ensure Ethos’ guiding principles and standards remain intact. The aforementioned board will be comprised of seasoned industry executives, thought leaders, and experienced operators, according to Cotilla.
Micah Smith, a managing partner at Roland, has been named CEO. “We’re excited to be a part of the Ethos team and continuing to grow both domestically and internationally.”
Said Cotilla, “Micah’s experience growing companies across borders will provide an additional voice to our executive bench that will help navigate our aggressive international expansion plans.”
We’re excited for a great second half of 2015 and beyond,” he said. “We look forward to continuing to provide a single point of contact for all our customers’ risk mitigation needs.”

Movember is here!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Movember, it is a way to celebrate the month of November which is Men’s Health month. Similar to wearing the color pink in September to show support for breast cancer research and awareness, the growth of facial hair in the month of November is a way to show support for causes such as prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health research and awareness.
The Movember Foundation is the largest organization in the world dedicated to raising awareness for men’s health. Last year, the Movember Foundation raised over $10 million in the United States and helped to fund over 800 projects around the world to make additional clinical research related to men’s health problems possible. For more information about the organization and ways that you may be able to get involved, check out their website at http://us.movember.com/?home.
