Explaining the deal, Kin +Carta CEO J Schwan said:

“The acquisition of Spire Digital is directly in line with our growth strategy, delivering a strategic foothold in the western United States with a best-in-class software design and engineering capability that adds to our fast growing Innovation pillar. Spire has a strong reputation of delivering highly innovative solutions and building a winning culture that’s hard to find. We’re looking forward to bringing the Spire Digital team into the Kin + Carta Connective.”

Added Spire Digital Founder, Mike Gellman, who remains an advisor to the company:

“Kin + Carta is such a solid fit for our team. We’re excited to be joining a like-minded group of people and working together to achieve our common goal of solving the world’s most difficult digital challenges.”

Spire President Adam Hasemeyer and COO Nick Coppolo will remain with the company as senior management. Gellman is an advisor.

Hasemeyer said:

“We’ve grown Spire significantly in recent years and have established a strong reputation in the western US DX market. To realize our fullest potential, we recognized that we needed a partner with deeper resources and a broad geographic reach. We scouted the market from the largest global firms to niche players and decided on Kin + Carta as the perfect choice for Spire. We identify closely with the spirit of entrepreneurialism and agility that we found there and are excited to reach new heights as a part of this impressive organization.”

Spire will continue to be based out of Denver, and will support clients globally as the firm begins to collaborate with the Kin + Carta Innovation pillar, the companies said.
