Cloud Computing Concepts (C3) has reached an agreement to acquire the service provider division of the South Florida Digital Alliance (SFDA).
The SFDA’s for-profit service provider division has been providing connectivity, colocation, and internet access throughout South Florida since 2009. The SFDA’s impressive client list includes several cities, universities, schools, non-profits and large commercial accounts.
“We are excited to welcome the SFDA clients to the C3 family, and are anxious to provide them with the white glove support that we are known for,” said Rick Mancinelli, CEO of C3. “We are also very proud to build on our long standing support of the SFDA by extending discounts to SFDA members, supporting their Technology Learning Center initiative, and donating in-kind services to support the SFDA’s internal technology and telecommunications needs.”
“We view this as a key step in our strategic plan,” added Don Slesnick III, executive director of the SFDA. “The sale of the service provider division to C3 will allow the SFDA to better focus on our core mission of bridging the digital divide in South Florida. Furthermore, our clients will benefit from C3’s enhanced support, broader product portfolio, extended geographic reach, and will enjoy the cost-efficiencies associated with C3’s greater buying power.”
C3 will assume management of the SFDA service provider division effective January 1, and pending FCC approval, the final closing is anticipated in March of 2018.
