MSP M&A: PE-Backed Dynamic Quest Acquires Nexxtep Technology Services


Greensboro, North Carolina-based MSP Dynamic Quest has acquired Nexxtep Technology Services, a fellow MSP from Valdosta, Georgia. Financial terms of the deal were not discussed.

This is M&A deal 297 that ChannelE2E has covered so far in 2020. See the complete M&A deal list here.

This is Dynamic Quest’s second acquisition of 2020, having previously purchased Cohn Consulting Corporation in February. In total, Dynamic Quest has completed four acquisitions since forming a partnership with private equity firm  Spire Capital in 2018.

The Nexxtep deal will add to Dynamic Quest’s market share in Georgia while providing the ability to cross-sell certain services to Nexxtep’s customers, the buyer said. Dynamic Quest says it will look to leverage its infrastructure – including its data center, centralized remote delivery team, and sales and marketing initiatives – to enhance service solutions for end clients and accelerate growth.
