In a prepared statement about the deal, Node4 CEO Andrew Gilbert said:

“Tisski has built a superb reputation over the past 12 years as a trusted technology provider across an extensive list of public sector enterprise customers supporting their delivery of critical public services. We’re delighted to welcome Anna and her excellent team to the Node4 group and look forward to working closely together to bring further success to the business.”

Added Tisski CEO Anna Assassa:

“Joining Node4 is an important next step for Tisski and we’re excited by the capabilities we will have as a part of the group. Our shared values and vision have resonated as we’ve worked closely with Andrew Gilbert and the Node4 leadership team throughout the process, which made this an easy decision to make. This move will open huge possibilities for our customers as they continue to transform their businesses for the better.”

M&A Retains Management Team

Tisski’s management team will remain in place as part of the wider Node4 group, the buyer said.
