TAMPA — ConnectWise, a Tampa-based business technology firm, has acquired HTG, a global consulting, coaching and peer group company.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
In a press release, ConnectWise CEO Arnie Bellini states that the move is a logical next step for the two organizations, which have enjoyed a strategic relationship dating back to 2008.
“This brings together a shared vision to help technology solution providers (TSPs) meet their full potential,” Bellini states. “We are creating an extraordinary ecosystem that gives all TSPs the opportunity to thrive.”
According to the release, Arlin Sorensen, founder and CEO of HTG, will remain as head of the new HTG business unit within ConnectWise. HTG's mission to help businesses and their leadership reach growth goals will not change now that the company has joined the ConnectWise family, Sorensen says.
