Diversified Continues Integrator Acquisition Binge
October 31, 2016 by Dave Haynes
New Jersey-based solutions provider Diversified (you may know them as DMG) continues to be in major growth through acquisition mode.
The company last week announced the acquisition of Dallas, TX-based Media Management, an integrator that also has offices in Houston. That’s on the heels of several other acquisitions, of similar companies, in the past year or so.
Given the unique and diverse requirements of our national enterprise, educational, healthcare and house of worship clients, local designing, project management expertise, and support is a must, the company says in the News section of its website. This new location not only adds skilled team members to the Diversified roster of industry veterans but also meets the growing demand for technology solutions in and around the Dallas area. With the existing regional office in Houston, Diversified will be able to provide an unprecedented level of support in the southwest region.
“We are extremely excited that our team is joining Diversified. After growing our business serving clients for nearly two decades, we have developed strategic relationships as our customers’ trusted partner, providing unique solutions in challenging environments,” says Scott McMullan, Founder, Owner and President, Media Management. “Joining the Diversified team allows us to expand our services and technology solution sets with global partners in all major markets.”
“As a trusted advisor, our clients demand expert solutions in literally every aspect of their technological business process,” adds Bob Dungan, Owner and General Manager, Media Management. “Diversified’s engineering disciplines in every manner of planning, A/V, broadcast, IT, and manage services allow us to provide our clients a complete solutions offering wherever they need communication and collaboration technology.”
Both guys will join Diversified’s executive management team.
“Building the best and most dynamic technology company in our industry has been my goal for over 20 years,” says Fred D’Alessandro, Chairman and CEO of Diversified. “To do that you need a great team, and Scott and Bob have built a strong and talented team and corporate culture that is perfectly suited to serve our clients. The healthcare practice is especially important as we grow in that key vertical. Further, this merger enables Diversified to immediately build on our portfolio services by leveraging the knowledge and experience of years in business focused on delivering best in class solutions.”
Contacts suggest Diversified is not finished with its efforts to roll up much of the AV integrator market.
