BitTitan, the developer of MigrationWiz and global leader in managed services automation, today announced the launch of its M&A growth initiative with the hiring of Kirk Swanson as corporate development associate. With the newly-added role, BitTitan plans to strengthen its market position through strategic investments in the enterprise cloud space.
“As BitTitan looks to enhance its global operations, we are seeking investment opportunities in innovative technologies to provide additional support to our customers around the world,” said Barney Silver, BitTitan’s vice president of finance and operations. “Kirk brings a wealth of experience working with both domestic and international companies and overseeing cross-border transactions. He will undoubtedly play an integral role in helping BitTitan identify and pursue key acquisitions to grow our business.”
Specifically, BitTitan is interested in identifying companies with cloud-based SaaS solutions and a strong presence with IT service providers or managed service providers (MSPs). Moreover, the company is uniquely positioned to consummate an acquisition quickly.
