As the industry grows, we want to remain one of the top players and we believe this requires a continued commitment to growing people. In order to achieve our goal, we needed to partner with a firm that can assist us with appropriately scaling our organization and executing complementary acquisition opportunities. The partner also needed to share our organizational values and focus on growing people. After an exhaustive search, we are excited to partner with Southfield Capital, a firm that has experience in guiding companies like Ntiva through the next phase of growth and shares our people first approach.”

Ntiva is an exemplary outsourced IT provider with its talented team, deep sector and functional expertise and vast referral network of satisfied clients.
