Cloud Sherpas Acquires CloudTrigger
December 21, 2012
Cloud Sherpas, a cloud services broker, has acquired CloudTrigger, a California-based cloud solution consultancy focused on helping organizations implement and customize CRM solutions in the cloud.
Thanks to the acquisition, Cloud Sherpas will now be able to have the strategic and technical resources necessary to further capitalize on cloud CRM implementation and customization opportunities in North America and abroad.
Industry experts said that the acquisition of CloudTrigger presents another significant milestone for Cloud Sherpas in its emergence as a leading cloud services brokerage provider.
In October, the firm hired former Capgemini (News - Alert) executive Gary Diorio to lead its CRM business unit.
Cloud Sherpas is a Salesforce.com Platinum Partner, and is also the Google Enterprise 2011 Partner of the Year. The Atlanta-based firm now has over 3,000 customers across practice areas.
"We are excited to bring CloudTrigger, with its significant business and technical expertise, into the Cloud Sherpas fold," said David Northington, CEO at Cloud Sherpas, in a statement.
Northington said that Carter and his team are true cloud professionals with tremendous depth of knowledge and a successful track record.
"We are thrilled to be joining forces with Cloud Sherpas, whose reputation for innovation and customer service is unparalleled among CSBs," said Carter Wigell, president at CloudTrigger.
“The collective experience of Cloud Sherpas and CloudTrigger further differentiates us as one of the few firms that have the depth of experience and technical expertise to help companies fully leverage the flexibility and functionality of the cloud," said Wigell.
Recently, Cloud Sherpas announced that it has completed a $40 million Series B capital raise that will help the company execute its aggressive international growth plans for 2013 and beyond. Existing Series A investors Columbia Capital and Delta-V Capital are joined in the new round by Greenspring Associates, a global venture capital firm with over $2.2 billion in committed capital, and Queensland Investment Corporation, one of the largest institutional investment managers in Australia.
