Privately-held, Dallas-based Vergent, which provides nationwide telecommunications and cloud services to small and medium-sized businesses, will continue its rapid growth path with the acquisition of the assets of LeaseNet Services.  The transaction between the two longstanding North Texas-based telecommunications firms, adds to Vergent’s growing fiber network, cloud services capacity and footprint, client list, and local customer service and sales resources.

“Ron Mara has managed LeaseNet since 1996 as a quality provider of telecommunications services to small and medium-sized businesses throughout North Texas,” said JT Fisher, CEO of Vergent.  “We’re excited about the prospect of bringing Vergent’s cloud services suite to LeaseNet’s loyal customer base, and we think LeaseNet customers will also value Vergent’s solid financial resources, national service footprint, and local customer service capabilities,” he added.  “The chance to partner with Ron and with Rosemary Foley, LeaseNet’s Director of Sales, on identifying and capturing future growth opportunities for Vergent, is the greatest prize from this transaction.”

This transaction represents the second strategic acquisition for Vergent in the past 12 months.
