DALLAS, TX | December 21st, 2021 – Rosewood Private Investments’ (“RPI” or “Rosewood”) portfolio company, General Informatics (“GI”), an IT managed services provider and network infrastructure company, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Unicom Technologies, a Texas based MSP focusing on the banking, credit union and financial services verticals, among others.
Unicom is a Managed IT Provider trusted by community banks, as well as credit unions, other financial institutions, and other businesses that have high levels of regulatory governance.
Brian Hoppe, CEO of Unicom, stated, “We felt like the timing was perfect for us to partner with a fast-growing, well-funded Technology provider like General Informatics. We love their growth strategy and feel as if our banking expertise will serve that industry vertical incredibly well.”
The acquisition of Unicom fits into General Informatics’ vision of continuously growing and improving technology offerings across all industries. By purchasing Unicom, General Informatics can better serve their current and future clients in Texas, as well as financial institutions nationally.
“Unicom has a notable client-focused process and culture that we believe will integrate perfectly with our culture here at GI,” said Don Monistere, CEO and President of General Informatics. “We are excited to begin working with the Unicom team and clients as we strengthen our offerings and geographic footprint.”
In 2020, General Informatics partnered with Rosewood Private Investments to develop an aggressive growth plan that includes both organic and acquisitive growth. In the last year, General Informatics has expanded its reach to Mississippi, Alabama, the Carolinas, and now Texas. The partnership with RPI has allowed General Informatics, and now Unicom, to continue to invest in the latest technology, attract top talent, and better serve the needs of customers.
“We are excited to partner with Brian and his team,” said Briton Burge, Principal at RPI, “The opportunity to enter the Texas market while strengthening our service offering and vertical expertise was extremely attractive to General Informatics, and Unicom’s deep bench of talent and similar culture made it a fantastic fit. We look forward to continuing to support General Informatics’ and Unicom’s combined growth.”
This is General Informatics’ third acquisition in 2021 and second outside the state of Louisiana. General Informatics and RPI are excited about the process of continuing to build out General Informatics’ and Unicom’s presence in the Southeast United States.
