AHEAD Continues Strategic Expansion, Buys vCORE Technology Partners

vCORE Technology Partners has been acquired by AHEAD, a provider of enterprise cloud services. The purchase will help AHEAD expand its foothold in the U.S. Southwest, a process that began in 2020 with the acquisition of systems integrator Kovarus.

vCORE would join the AHEAD portfolio by bringing top-tier talent and high-profile clients, resulting in a company with more than $2 billion in gross revenue this year, more than $200 million in professional and managed services revenue, and more than 1,300 employees, 800 of whom work in engineering or customer service.

“The addition of vCORE to the AHEAD family solidifies our position as a premier provider of digital business platforms in the U.S.,” said Daniel Adamany, founder and CEO of AHEAD. “Together, we’ll better meet the end-to-end needs of our enterprise clients and help them accelerate their transformations to more agile and innovative cloud-native businesses.”

vCORE, situated in Scottsdale, would extend AHEAD’s position in the western United States, notably in Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, California, and Hawaii, where it was founded in 2010. With the acquisition of vCORE, AHEAD would be able to expand its service offerings, including sophisticated managed services, and strengthen its position as a global leader in digital business infrastructure.

United States and Canada

“From its inception, vCORE has been all about leveraging the right technology to deliver tremendous business value to our clients, and our capability to succeed in that mission will only grow as we join the AHEAD team,” said Steve Leavitt, founder and CEO of vCORE. “Our two organizations already share a similar culture – built upon a commitment to deliver excellent customer service while giving back to the communities in which we work and live. I’m excited for the new opportunities that the AHEAD platform, a larger portfolio of digital solutions, will bring to our colleagues and our clients.”

More than 100 enterprises in the United States and Canada rely on vCORE Technology Partners for customized IT solutions and services. Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, vCORE was founded in 2010. Network infrastructure, cloud storage, data protection, and proactive managed services are all areas where the vCORE team has shown expertise. Multibillion-dollar media businesses, large health-care providers, IT behemoths, data centers, and others are among their clients.

AHEAD has continued to expand organically at a rapid pace while also acquiring companies such as Link Solutions Group (2019), Data Blue (2019), Sovereign Systems (2019), Platform Consulting Group (2020), Kovarus (2020), RoundTower Technologies (2020), and data and analytics consultant Vertical Trail in the last three years (2021).
