I am pleased to share some really exciting news today. The partners of Portal Solutions, a $5 million information technology consulting firm based in Bethesda, MD, will be signing agreements today to join their practice with our firm. We have been seeking the right strategic partner to enhance our management consulting services, and we found the perfect match with Portal Solutions in terms of service expertise and culture. We are excited to now offer clients digital workplace solutions, which aligns with our overarching strategy and business objective to bring together people, processes, technology and data in order to propel their growth and success. Our union will allow us to immediately offer our clients cloud-focused information technology consulting services supporting Office 365, Azure cloud solutions, data analytics, business process automation and mobile development and security. It’s very exciting.
Daniel Cohen-Dumani, Portal’s founder and Chief Executive Office, and Dale Tuttle, Chief Operating Office, will both join on as Partners, along with 31 additional team members. Ten of their staff, however, are based in their smaller Woburn, MA, office located about 16 miles northwest of our Boston office.
Growth through mergers and acquisitions is certainly a part of our firm’s long-term strategy, to supplement and fuel our future organic growth. We are so pleased that throughout the firm’s 43 years of history, we have been successful in finding the right strategic partners to help us reach new markets, expand a variety of service areas, and bring aboard so many talented professionals who help provide the world-class service our clients have come to expect every day. We are confident our new partners from Portal Solutions will continue this legacy of great partnerships.
