This truly is a win-win all around.”
"We have had the pleasure of working with Tequity for the last several years. During our initial encounter, they had the foresight to recommend bringing our teams together which resulted in our merger in 2020. As a result of our immediate success as a combined organization, Alex and Anish quickly indicated a strong interest in the market for our firm. We decided to field offers and to our great surprise there were several, very compelling alternatives. We ultimately decided to accept the Apps Associates offer as we felt their values and culture most closely aligned with ours, while providing employees and customers with tremendous opportunities. Throughout the process Alex and Anish were fantastic – professional, transparent, and very knowledgeable on the Salesforce M&A market. Thank you Tequity for your guidance and partnership the last several years, we really appreciate it,” said Jeff.
