Converge Technology Solutions Snaps Up Dasher Technologies, with More M&A to Come

By | Managed Services News

Dasher’s impressive resume and robust legacy will bolster Converge’s existing business and partnerships.

Converge Technology Solutions Corp. is buying Dasher Technologies, a Silicon Valley-based IT solutions provider. Converge has been M&A hungry; Dasher is its 19th acquisition.

Dasher brings with it a pretty impressive resume across a broad scope of industries. Perhaps the biggest feather in the deal’s cap is that Dasher is the fifth largest HPE partner in North America. Converge’s expanding cloud and managed service offerings – combined with Dasher’s robust roster of clients – is advantageous. This will allow Dasher’s new and existing clients to take advantage of cloud computing and remote working environments. The combined force of both Converge and Dasher’s teams of experts and industry partnerships will further support all clients.

“Dasher is a key addition to the Converge team and gives us an increased presence on the West Coast to bolster our existing business and partnerships. The Dasher team brings the technical expertise, thought leadership, strong vendor partnerships and client relationships that we look for in our growing family of companies,” said Greg Berard, president of Converge Technology Solutions. “The incorporation of Dasher into the Converge organization advances the company’s 2021 focus on completing further strategic acquisitions and broadening resource development. This continued growth allows us to constantly offer our clients the best and most innovative solutions and technologies to meet their ever-changing business needs.”

Dasher has been a unique force in the industry since its inception. Founder and pioneer Laurie Dasher died last fall. She left behind a powerful legacy in terms of women-founded and led businesses. Considering the hurdles that women in technology face, Dasher was a remarkable business leader and advocate for channel women.

The acquisition will strengthen Converge’s managed service offerings and presence in key markets.
