McLean, Virginia: June 26, 2018.
Association Resource Group, Inc. (ARG) announced today the acquisition of a technology consulting practice serving the Northeast region of the United States. The practice, and seven industry veterans, was acquired from Carousel Industries and includes a client base of 500 businesses concentrated from New York to Maine. This addition brings the total number of clients served by ARG to 4,000. The Northeast practice will immediately adopt the ARG name.
ARG transforms IT procurement for their clients by leveraging its industry experts along with a portfolio of over 300 service providers to streamline technology adoption. The compelling procurement model combined with white glove support led to 11% market share in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia region where ARG is headquartered.
“This acquisition is vital to the future vision of ARG,” said Greg Praske, ARG Chief Executive Officer. “We are thrilled to bring on a talented and experienced team. We have developed a highly successful model and we are excited to deliver this to a wider client base. With this acquisition, we will validate that our methodology can be transferred to an established consulting practice. When successful, we will eagerly seek additional expansion opportunities,” continued Mr. Praske.
Darryl Senese will lead the Northeast office for ARG. Mr. Senese commented, “We are extremely excited about joining ARG and helping to expand their footprint. Our ethical cultures are similar, and our clients will benefit from the broad portfolio of cloud, communications and security services ARG has in its solution portfolio. We look forward to leveraging the ARG resources to drive positive business outcomes for our clients.”
“Carousel has been the leader in mergers and acquisitions in our industry. It was a pleasure to work with Jeff Gardner and his team. We trust this will be a win-win for both organizations,” commented Praske.
