Greensboro, NC (July 20th, 2020) – Dynamic Quest, a managed service provider offering IT and cloud services to enterprises and businesses, completed the acquisition of Nexxtep Technology Services (“Nexxtep”), a Valdosta, Georgia-based managed services provider.
Dynamic Quest, led by CEO & Founder Javier Gomez, continued with its strategic vision to expand in the Southeastern United States with the acquisition of Nexxtep. This marks the fourth acquisition for Dynamic Quest since the formation of its partnership with Spire Capital in Q2 2018.
Javier Gomez, CEO of Dynamic Quest relayed, “We continue to grow organically and are strategically executing acquisitions to add greater breadth to our services portfolio and geographic reach to better serve our clients and partners. We are excited to welcome the Nexxtep team to Dynamic Quest. The founders at Nexxtep and their team have built a great company, serving critical IT services to their clients.

They have a high integrity culture, exceptional service and partnership to their clients, and we are proud they will continue our history of client first service with expanded offerings for our customers.”
The transaction will enhance Dynamic Quest’s market share in Georgia and provide the ability to cross-sell some services to Nexxtep’s customer base that are not currently offered.
