Why Settle have completed the acquisition of the Network Division of Xpedient Ltd in a six-figure deal supported by Royal Bank of Scotland. The deal makes Why Settle a major supplier of IT Network Services to the professional services sector in Scotland, and brings a further international market, the Middle East, to our existing international work in Australia and Ireland.
All staff have been retained as the company looks to incorporate the skills, services and good practice of both businesses across our enlarged client base. Both companies operate under the highest ethical standards with processes in place to protect customer data at all times, reflected in their strong and lengthy reputations. Xpedient clients will still be able to speak to all the same staff, at the same offices, but will soon meet some new faces.
Paul Brennan, chief executive of Why Settle, said,
“We are delighted to acquire the Network Division of Xpedient Ltd. Xpedient is a well-run and profitable business, with first-class staff, reflected in an outstanding client base. Our greatest challenge as a business is finding the right staff and today we have been able to co-opt some of the finest in our industry.”
