EquaTerra acquires MorganChambers!





Got a call from by buddy, Director at MC (while he was on his way from Berlin to UK) that they got acquired by EquaTerra.

I have kept pressing the folks to expand their consulting to more IT and Infrastructure related consulting. Hopefully under the umbrella of EquaTerra they will include "Virtualization and the whole IT Infrastructure" into their consulting package.

The collective teams will provide unrivalled depth of knowledge and services across all business support functions, including Information Technology (IT), Human Resources (HR), Finance & Accounting (F&A), Procurement and Customer Care. The firms have additional expertise in sector-specific processes such as claims management, mortgage processing and policy administration. The acquisition will also broaden and solidify the firm’s geographic reach, thereby providing greater value for clients. The combined firm has approximately 300 employees across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

Mark Toon, CEO, EquaTerra said, “The leadership teams of our firms are excited about this acquisition. We are in the unique situation of bringing together two organisations with a strong presence in different geographies, yet with similar cultures, methodologies and depth of experience in the markets we serve. The expanded geographic reach and enhanced service offerings, combined with the tenure and expertise of our advisors makes this acquisition a positive event for our clients, employees and business partners.”

Phil Morris, CEO, Morgan Chambers said, “Both EquaTerra and ourselves possess a relentless commitment to our clients and their needs and objectives. We’ve built a well-respected advisory business in Europe and we feel joining EquaTerra gives us the organisational depth and geographic reach our clients need. We believe our collective strengths will further support our clients on their journey to create sustainable value in their business support functions.”

Robert Morgan, Chairman and founder of Morgan Chambers will leave the organisation once the deal is complete. “Creating Morgan Chambers back in 1994 was such an exciting opportunity and I am extremely proud of what the company and its hugely talented staff have achieved for our clients. I am pleased to be able to hand over to such a likeminded organisation, which in turn provides me with the opportunity to invest in new ventures.”

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
