NuMSP Expands to Northern California with Purchase of Aperio IT

Acquisition marks entry to Sacramento market for SMB IT service offerings

CLIFTON, NJ and SACRAMENTO, CA – September 25, 2018 – NuMSP, a growing national managed service provider offering managed IT and cybersecurity solutions, today announced its entrance into the California SMB IT services market with the acquisition of Aperio IT, a full-service information technology managed service provider, offering comprehensive IT solutions for small and mid-sized businesses throughout the greater Sacramento area.

This acquisition continues to expand the growing NuMSP family of managed service offerings across the US, targeted to the small and midsize business (SMB) market. SMB organizations face rapid advances in technology, making it increasingly difficult for smaller businesses to stay current and realize the full ROI on their IT investments. To meet this challenge, NuMSP is building a nationwide company with the scale and resources to deliver advanced IT services to SMBs that will rival incumbent solutions at Fortune 500 companies.

"By combining talent and capabilities with Aperio IT, NuMSP anticipates broadening the options available to business owners in the Sacramento area and beyond," said Jim Griffith, CEO of NuMSP. "The synergies from combining forces will enhance the choices we can offer to the SMB market, resulting in higher customer satisfaction and improved IT ROI."

"I'm proud of what we built at Aperio IT over the past 18 years," added Cary Warner, co-owner of Aperio IT. "As we embark on this next step in our company's growth, we are pleased to join the NuMSP nationwide platform, and we will continue to exceed our clients' requirements and expectations as we expand our offerings."

"Aperio IT's mission has always been to become a trusted adviser to our clients by delivering best of breed technology solutions," added Gene Munger, co-owner of Aperio IT. "We are excited to be able to further expand and deepen our ability to serve our customers by joining forces with NuMSP."

The transaction closed on September 25, 2018.

About NuMSP

After years of providing IT services and security solutions for small and midsize (SMB) businesses across several states, our leadership team decided to offer premium solutions in every state in the U.S. The SMB market has always provided most of the job and economic growth in the United States but this segment's ability to access and leverage technology has always been limited to in-house research capabilities and expertise, or the reliance on a trusted IT advisor, a role made more difficult given the advances in technology and proliferation of security threats. In response to these dual trends, NuMSP is creating a nationwide company with the scale and resources to deliver advanced IT services and security solutions that will rival the solutions leveraged by Fortune 500 companies. We are currently looking to enter new geographic areas and acquire MSPs in our existing geographic markets. If you are interested in having your MSP join the NuMSP family, a vibrant national IT organization, please contact us.
