RICHMOND, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Harris Williams, a global investment bank specializing in M&A advisory services, announces it advised Ntiva, a portfolio company of Southfield Capital, on its sale to PSP Partners (PSP). Ntiva is a leading provider of managed IT services, strategic consulting, cybersecurity services, cloud services and telecom solutions. The transaction was led by the Harris Williams Business Services Group and Technology Group, including Derek Lewis, Anthony Basmajian, Priyanka Naithani, Jenson Dunn and Phil Ashkenaz.
“Ntiva has established itself as an industry leading provider of managed IT services offering a broad range of critical cyber, cloud and IT consulting solutions,” said Anthony Basmajian, a managing director at Harris Williams. “As the industry continues to evolve, small- and medium-sized businesses lacking the required internal resources and expertise are turning to professional outsourced managed IT providers to help navigate today’s technology complexities and increased cybersecurity threats.
