November 3, 2015 – Today is a big day for AHEAD. We have decided to engage in a partnership with Court Square Capital Partners – a premier, long-term private equity investor. The first question you may ask is “Why?”. My simple answer is opportunity.
AHEAD has experienced rapid growth since the company was founded in 2007. This growth has been a result of our passion and desire to continually invest in innovative solutions that drive outcomes for our clients. Given these investments, we find ourselves in a very unique position. We are able to help clients build multi-year strategies that bridge the gap between where they are today and how they take advantage of key advances in technology. In addition, we have built the expertise to help clients take action and deploy those strategies. This approach has enabled us to grow at a faster rate in the last two years than the prior six.
Our opportunity with this partnership is to continue to invest, grow, and better serve our clients. Over the coming years, you will see us continue to aggressively develop new solutions in Enterprise Service Management, Cloud Infrastructure, Mobility, and several new areas. These areas are rapidly coming together to provide a more holistic and impactful platform for the delivery of next generation services and applications. This is our collective opportunity.
I am very excited about our new partnership and the possibilities it will provide. Stay tuned as we continue to accelerate forward!
