Irvine, California | Boston (December 6, 2022) – Synoptek, a leading global business and technology consulting firm, today announced it has acquired Optistar Technology Consultants (“Optistar”), the technology services business division of The Vertex Companies, LLC (“Vertex”) with offices spanning New York, Boston, Denver, and Seattle. The acquisition will be instrumental in expanding Synoptek’s footprint and advancing its capabilities in value-driven managed information technology services, cyber security solutions, digital forensics and software engineering.

This acquisition allows Vertex to divest its technology services division, Optistar, while also securing a global technology services partner, Synoptek, to support future growth and automation. Both companies are excited about the acquisition, the new partnership and the mutual growth potential.

Synoptek’s unparalleled track record of transforming IT to achieve optimal business results combined with Optistar’s expansive geographic presence and competencies in strategic consulting, cyber defense services and digital and forensic solutions will have a rapid and enduring impact on clients. Blending these offerings with Synoptek’s well-established standards, practices and 24/7 global operations will also bolster expansion in key regions where Optistar is already established and will strategically position the business for regional growth, particularly in the Northeastern region of the United States. Additionally, Synoptek’s diverse service portfolio and global delivery brings an opportunity for Optistar to scale its business, add more value to its customer base and support its growth trajectory.

“We look forward to further developing the Synoptek brand within the Northeast and beyond through the acquisition of the Optistar business,” said Bo Bray, vice president of ITSM at Synoptek. “Bringing both companies together will extend our depth of skills and service offerings to better meet the needs of current and future customers – especially in the realm of digital forensics and cyber defense.”

The synergy and vision between the companies is mutually beneficial, especially when it comes to delivering IT Leadership as a Service, offering exceptional client experiences and providing transformative digital services.

“Joining forces with a well-established business and technology consulting powerhouse like Synoptek enhances the scale and scope of our capabilities. Synoptek’s experienced global team of over 1,000 professionals will serve as an invaluable resource to uphold our mission of delivering exceptional results for our valued clients,” said Mark Jordan, president of Optistar.

The Optistar business will assume the Synoptek brand.
