Huron Capital’s InterVision Announces Fifth Add-on Acquisition
Acquisition of Fotis Expands Cybersecurity, Cloud Computing and Infrastructure Engineering Services
Detroit, MI – October 3, 2019 – Leading lower-middle-market private equity firm Huron Capital today announced its information technology solutions platform, InterVision, has acquired Fotis Networks, an IT professional services and consulting firm.
Founded in 1998, Boston-based Fotis provides cybersecurity and networking professional services to clients in the government, commercial, healthcare and education sectors.
“Our clients are moving into more complex environments that require greater expertise in cloud services, security, enterprise infrastructure and compliance,” said Aaron Stone, president and CEO of InterVision. “Fotis brings technical depth in these areas and complements our current engineering talent. We believe that we will be able to serve our clients even more effectively as we join the two companies together.”
Additionally, over the past two years, Fotis and InterVision have formed a close relationship. Fotis is an InterVision Service Delivery Partner and has provided professional services to InterVision clients.
“The natural synergy between Fotis and InterVision is the result of shared values and experience working together on complex client deployments,” said Frank Loulourgas, founder and CEO of Fotis, who will remain with the combined company. “Joining the InterVision team is expected to enhance our collective ability to deliver the best client outcomes.”
Huron Capital partnered with Santa Clara, California-based InterVision in 2016 to pursue opportunities in the rapidly growing IT solutions industry. Over the last three years, InterVision has also merged with or acquired Infiniti Consulting Group, Bluelock, Netelligent, and Independent Technology Group. With InterVision and Huron Capital’s backing, Fotis also has an opportunity to expand its expertise to a broader range of clients and projects.
“We are extremely impressed with Fotis’ cybersecurity work with customers such as the U.S. Department of Defense and defense contractors and expect this acquisition will provide InterVision with access to new capabilities and customers,” said Brian Rassel, Vice President of Private Equity at Huron Capital. “This acquisition is aligned with our buy-and-build strategy and is focused on driving value for InterVision’s clients as an established industry leader.”
