Latest Acquisition Accelerates I-Evolve’s Growth in the Western New York Region
BUFFALO, NY, May 1, 2017—I-Evolve Technology Services, a leading Cloud Services provider, has signed an agreement to acquire the Small and Medium-Sized Business (“SMB”) Managed Services arm of Crossfuze.

“The acquisition of the Crossfuze SMB Managed Services division allows I-Evolve to accomplish three strategic objectives,” said Kevin Kelly, President of I-Evolve. “It accelerates our growth plans, gives us access to high-quality technical talent, and provides opportunities to layer I-Evolve’s cloud solutions onto the managed services Crossfuze already provides its clients.”
“We are excited to be transitioning our SMB Managed Services business to a company as respected and forward thinking as I-Evolve,” said Rick Muller, Crossfuze’s Chief Strategy Officer. “Our SMB clients will benefit by being able to leverage I-Evolve’s industry-leading cloud solutions. I-Evolve is uniquely qualified in its expertise to take over this business. This is a sound transaction for both companies.”
The acquisition of the Crossfuze’s SMB Managed Service portfolio is the eighth technology company acquisition by I-Evolve. “This acquisition is our response to the vitality of the Western New York business market,” said David Meller, Founder and CEO of I-Evolve. “The need for end-to-end, state-of-the-art IT services is strong, and acquiring this SMB-focused division of Crossfuze better positions I-Evolve to meet the growing demands.”
Crossfuze’s technical resources on staff will be retained, bringing I-Evolve’s total workforce to 32 full-time personnel with additional hiring now in progress.
