GPK Group acquires Geek IT to provide customers national coverage and expanded solution portfolio.
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, 7th December 2018 – GPK Group Pty Ltd, an Australian Managed Service Provider (MSP), announced that Geek Pty Ltd, a South Australian MSP has been acquired to provide customers with national coverage and an expanded solution portfolio of products and services.
Recently, Geek IT began transitioning all clients to GPK Group’s support infrastructure in a process to give Geek IT Managing Director, Jon Paior time with his family after his wife’s recent illness. Jon will continue to work with GPK Group, indefinitely, to support the former Geek IT clients without business ownership pressures. This change will allow Jon to focus on his wife’s treatment and the care of their three young children. While the loss of Geek IT as a trading entity has been difficult for Jon, he’s looking forward to performing on a national stage and helping build GPK Group’s cybersecurity division into a national industry leader.
Geek IT, Managing Director, Jon Paior stated, “I am proud of our 14-year history since founding Geek, serving SME’s in South Australia. I am exceptionally grateful for the work of my dedicated team of staff who have gone above and beyond through this transition. Since meeting at the ConnectWise Evolve Peer Group, GPK Group and Geek IT have worked together to share industry insights and product development knowledge for more than seven years. In light of my need to focus on the wellbeing of my family, this is a great outcome for not only us but also our customers.”
GPK Group, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Grant Klaaysen stated, “We have enjoyed working with Geek IT for years and had been actively looking to expand into South Australia to support our growing retail point of sale customer base across the Australian Independent Grocers network. When the opportunity presented itself to take on Geek IT’s employees and customers, we knew that it would be a great fit for GPK Group. Jon’s depth of experience and enthusiasm will be invaluable to GPK Group. We are thrilled to retain such a valuable team.”
