Thrive, a premier provider of NextGen Managed Services, has acquired Apex IT Group, a leader in IT technology managed solutions for companies in the Greater Philadelphia region. This transaction further establishes Thrive’s significant presence in the Mid-Atlantic corridor by expanding their Cloud & Cyber Security focused NextGen platform into the Apex IT client base.
Apex IT Group, headquartered in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, delivers IT managed services through its proprietary process-driven methodology and its “Simple to Switch” client on-boarding process. They serve a variety of different small-to-mid-sized businesses in the Greater Philadelphia market with a strong focus upon service delivery, operational excellence and improving their client’s technology experience.
“I’m very excited to welcome the Apex IT Group, their employees and customers to the Thrive family,” said Rob Stephenson, Thrive’s CEO. “By bringing together our companies’ shared vision of technology innovation and a fervent dedication to IT service delivery, we’re providing a significant value proposition to Apex’s clients.”
“Thrive’s industry-leading NextGen Managed Services and ServiceNow automation platform, coupled with our technical proficiency in IT operations, will expand Apex’s role as a leader in the Greater Philadelphia and Mid-Atlantic region,” said Tina Mach, Apex IT Group’s CEO. “We’ve been very impressed with Thrive’s capabilities and are confident that our partnership will drive tremendous value to our customers via enhanced engineering depth, 24×7 operations, Cloud, SOC & Cyber Security expertise.”
Apex IT Group will be a founding staple of Thrive’s Mid-Atlantic region, overseen by Jason Shirdon, EVP & Regional General Manager, and formerly the President of EaseTech, a Columbia, Maryland MSP that Thrive acquired in late 2019.
