Partnership allows Fore A to accelerate growth and better serve clients
Roseville, CA – DCA Partners (“DCA”) is pleased to announce that Fore A Partners (“Fore A”) has sold to Quest Technology Management (“Quest”). DCA is proud to have served as financial adviser to Fore A on this transaction. The law offices of Robin Clark Bevier served as legal counsel to Fore A. RTA Group advised Quest on the acquisition.
Fore A, a leading enterprise-level IT solutions integrator based in Folsom, California, provides technical expertise and product-sales support to customers ranging from small and medium-sized businesses to large enterprises across a wide spectrum of technology-driven industries. Fore A works with its clients on a variety of front-end solutions, from product sourcing and project architecture to solution management and implementation. The company sought a partner to help accelerate its growth and provide additional resources and services to complement its broad array of product-oriented solutions.
“We went into this process with very specific criteria for what an ideal partner would look like. From the beginning of our conversations, we saw tremendous cultural alignment with Quest,” said Anthony Baker, one of Fore A’s founding partners. “Both of our organizations are driven by continually putting our clients and vendors at the forefront of everything we do. This partnership will allow us to continue that approach while bringing additional products, services, and expertise to our respective clients throughout the region and around the world.”
Quest’s suite of managed and cloud services, cybersecurity, and disaster recovery applications are an ideal complement to Fore A’s portfolio of hardware-centric products and solutions. Fore A will continue to operate under its existing brand as a Quest company.
