AVON, CONNECTICUT, December 6, 2018 – Ironwood Capital is pleased to announce that portfolio company Consulting Solutions International (“CSI”), a leading IT staffing and consulting business, has acquired JDC Group, an Atlanta-based IT staffing firm that provides services similar to CSI with a focus on supporting SAP software.
Ironwood Capital Managing Director Alex Levental stated, “Since our original investment in CSI in June 2018, the company has continued to execute to plan and acquire complementary firms, expanding its capabilities and geography as one of the largest IT staffing solutions service providers in the United States. These acquisitions create cross-selling opportunities and fuel CSI’s bottom-line growth while extending the company’s geographic reach and breadth of technical skills.”
Noted Paul Witinski, director at Ironwood Capital, “JDC Group was founded in 2005 and has historically focused on Atlanta, Georgia but in 2017 opened a satellite office in Nashville, Tennessee. The acquisition of JDC brings high-caliber SAP credentials to the CSI platform and adds another strong management team to CSI’s roster, as well as 30 non-overlapping clients.”
