KIRKLAND, Wash., Aug. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International
business and IT services firm, Xtreme Consulting Group, Inc., today has
reached a definitive agreement to acquire Kipe Technology Resources--a
leading technology staffing firm based out of Beaverton, Oregon.
The purchase of Kipe Technology Resources further increases Xtreme's
share in the IT consulting market. "The combination of Kipe with Xtreme
will create one of the largest consulting and staffing firms based in
the Northwest," said Greg Rankich, CEO and Co-Founder of Xtreme. "The
acquisition greatly advances our strategy of expanding our customer
base, adding depth to our talent pool, and strengthening our position
in the marketplace."
Founded in 1991, Kipe is a leading provider of IT staffing in the
Portland market. Carol Sampson has led Kipe Technology Resources as
President for the past 10 years and is confident her company is growing
in the right direction with Xtreme. "Xtreme has an impressive track
record of consistent revenue growth. The company's numerous
achievements and accolades are a direct result of its talented
leadership team, dedicated employees, and their ability to set
aggressive goals and execute accordingly. Xtreme will provide
additional resources and exciting opportunities to our employees and is
poised to take Kipe to the next level of success."
Xtreme Consulting Group will leverage Kipe's excellent reputation and
top-quality employees to integrate the two companies together into the
Portland market. Xtreme strongly supports Kipe's current business
structure and intends to maintain the same culture under the Xtreme
brand. "The integration of both companies will take place during the
month of August. Our combined clients will continue to receive the same
high-quality consulting and staffing services that they have come to
expect," stated Greg.
"We believe the transaction will open the door to new opportunities for
all employees. With the combined platform our company will achieve
greater public visibility, increased financial firepower, and the
ability to offer an even broader array of client-facing services,"
states Tony Richardson, CTO and Co-Founder of Xtreme who manages the
company's Technical Consulting and Product Development divisions. "We
are thrilled to bring our IT consulting capabilities to Kipe's existing
client base and continue to expand throughout the northwest."
Kipe is known for delivering exceptional service and operating every
facet of the business with the highest degree of integrity. In spite of
the constant changes that occur in the IT industry, Carol Sampson
