Amick Brown LLC, a respected and long-established technology staffing and consulting firm in San Ramon, CA, was recently acquired by Zest LLC, an international technology staffing firm. Exit Strategies Group, Inc. advised the seller in the transaction. Terms of the transaction are confidential.

Amick Brown was founded in San Ramon in 2010. The Company provides technology staffing and technology consulting services for government and private sector clients. Customers are located throughout the United States and include many of the world’s largest enterprises. Amick Brown had five active owners. Two were looking to retire; Zest has retained the remaining three partners to continue in their current capacities with Amick Brown under the ownership and direction of Zest.

“Exit Strategies Group guided us through a process that was new to us and positioned us to achieve a very successful outcome,” stated Karen Gildea, Managing Partner of Amick Brown. “We absolutely could not have achieved the same results without their steady support and expert counsel. As result of Exit Strategies Group’s counsel, we were able to substantially increase the purchase price paid at closing.”

Amick Brown was advised by an Exit Strategies Group team led by Mark Harter. Steven Lee of Donahue Fitzgerald LLP provided legal counsel and John Anderson, CPA of the Anderson Company provided tax advice.
