Genuent Acquires Segula Technologies' North American Operations

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Genuent LLC, a Houston-based information technology staffing firm and subsidiary of the Willis Group, announced today that it has acquired the US information technology operations of the French technology staffing and solutions company Segula Technologies. Segula’s North American footprint includes locations in Bedford, NH, Rochester, NY, New York, NY, Atlanta, GA, Huntington Beach, CA and Sacramento, CA.

This strategic acquisition by Genuent, whose existing footprint included locations in Houston, TX, New York, NY and Jacksonville, FL, will substantially enhance the firm’s ability to support larger clients across multiple markets. Additionally, the operational and cultural synergies that were identified between the two organizations will allow the combined organization to deliver greater value to both its consultants and clients. Acquest International L.P. represented Segula Technologies, Inc. in the transaction.

President of Genuent Rick Roberts stated, "It was clear to us from the beginning that this organization shared our values and complemented our strengths. They have an entrepreneurial and intensely customer-focused culture which aligns neatly with the Genuent mission and philosophy. We are incredibly enthusiastic about the future of our combined organization and what that means in terms of innovation and value for our clients and consultants."

"Willis Group’s strategy to support our business leaders in growing their organizations’ footprints and capabilities isn’t complicated," added Mark Willis, President and CEO of Willis Group. "If it represents additional value or better service for our clients and preserves or enhances the successful culture of the organization, we are on board.
