Memphis, Tenn.-based One GI and Michigan-based Pinnacle GI Partners are among the fastest-growing platforms in GI with a combined six deals between them since their formation. 

One GI formed in April 2020 when Webster Equity Partners partnered with Memphis, Tenn.-based Gastro One. It made its first postformation transaction in December 2020, acquiring a pair of practices in Oxford, Miss., and Nashville, Tenn., and then made a pair of transactions in February and March.
