UPSTACK Acquires Sidepath Global

UPSTACK acquires today Sidepath Global Inc., a full-service provider of telecom services based in Henderson, Nev., and it forms a strategic partnership with Sidepath Global’s sister company, Sidepath Inc., an IT value-added reseller (VAR) based in Laguna Hills, Calif. The terms of the transactions were not disclosed.

Founded in 2006, Sidepath Inc. started as a telecom services agency and, on client request, added IT hardware sales and services. After 15 years of operating both divisions under a single brand, the company separated the telecom agency as Sidepath Global in 2020. Both companies are owned by Jim Andronaco (left) and Patrick Mulvee (below).

Andronaco will become a Partner and Managing Director at UPSTACK. He also will continue as Co-owner and President of Sidepath Inc. Mulvee will remain Co-owner at Sidepath Inc.

“Sidepath Global has earned a stellar reputation as one of the industry’s top network and cloud solutions providers. Their consultants are known as go-to experts for data center solutions, which aligns perfectly with UPSTACK’s roots in the data center space,” said UPSTACK Founder and CEO Christopher Trapp. “In addition to further expanding our solutions expertise, our partnership with Sidepath Inc. will allow UPSTACK to deliver hyper-converged infrastructure solutions to our clients. We’re thrilled to welcome Sidepath Global to the UPSTACK family.”

Sidepath Global supports 150 customers with subscription services, including data center hosting, unified communications as a service (UCaaS), contact center as a service (CCaaS), connectivity, cloud computing, cloud backup and security.

The company has earned top-performer awards from its two technology services distributors (TSDs), becoming a Double Platinum Partner with Intelisys and an Elite Partner with Telarus.

Investors took note of Sidepath Global’s success, and owners Andronaco and Mulvee entertained several offers, ultimately selecting UPSTACK.

“UPSTACK is a great fit for us on many levels,” said Andronaco. “The company has the back-office and marketing support to grow and support the agency business. And, it has an existing customer base that we expect to drive new sales opportunities for our VAR business.”

Mulvee added, “UPSTACK also offered the best home for our Sidepath Global employees and customers. UPSTACK is welcoming all four members of our staff and offering them the opportunity to advance their careers. And UPSTACK is providing Sidepath Global customers an even greater level of support and access to a wider range of capabilities and services.”
