UPSTACK Acquires United Technology

UPSTACK announced it has acquired United Technology LLC, a consulting firm that specializes in complex network deployments for real-time applications. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

UPSTACK’s investment in New York-based United Technology is part of its strategy to accelerate the growth of its industry-transforming platform, which combines leading internet infrastructure advisors with proprietary software and support resources. As part of the investment, United Technology founder and President Trish Van de Bovenkamp will join UPSTACK as a Partner and Managing Director.

“Trish Van de Bovenkamp has earned the trust of global CIOs and CEOs, helping them understand the strategic merits of digital transformation. She’s elevated discussions and deployments — from critical network and computing infrastructure and up the stack to application management,” said UPSTACK CEO Christopher Trapp. “Trish’s expertise and experience are a valuable addition to UPSTACK.”

Van de Bovenkamp founded United Technology in 2005 after more than 15 years as a sales executive with global telecom companies such as CenturyLink (now Lumen), WorldCom and Moscow Cellular.

“I enjoyed a successful and diverse career working for several of the major telecom players before starting United Technology,” said Van de Bovenkamp. “I formed the company to bring exceptional service to not only suppliers but to clients, and I knew that representing them as a channel partner would accomplish that goal.”

She leveraged her extensive client contacts and industry relationships in the Caribbean, Central and South Americas, Europe and the United States to secure her first five enterprise clients – all of which remain United Technology clients today.

United Technology advises global organizations on managed services infrastructure, workplace and workforce transformation, network transformation, security and managed application services. Over the past seven years, the company experienced 30 percent year-over-year growth and in 2020, amid the pandemic, it recorded its best year to date.

The company’s success triggered unsolicited offers from buyers. Van de Bovenkamp entertained the conversations, but it wasn’t until she spoke with UPSTACK that it “just clicked.”

“It was intriguing to learn that UPSTACK shares a similar vision to create an elevated experience for its clients, not only in procurement but the entire lifecycle management of complex technology services,” she said. “My number one professional priority is to make sure my clients get more — more from me, more resources, more support. Remaining active with my clients and having access to UPSTACK for collaboration, shared wisdom and best practices has been incredible.”
