NetGain Technologies Acquires EasyIT in Columbus, Ohio


NetGain, backed by Evergreen Services Group, Continues Expansion in Ohio River Valley Region

Lexington, Ky. (July 12, 2022) – NetGain Technologies, a leading IT services and cybersecurity provider, announced today the acquisition of EasyIT, an established IT support and services company in Columbus, Ohio.

Brothers and owners, Eric and Kurt Hoeft started EasyIT in 1998. Their leadership, with significant help from CFO Marla Hoeft, has grown the company substantially over the years.  They, along with the rest of the EasyIT team, will remain with the organization so the clients can expect to receive the same high-quality services from the people they have come to know over the years.

“Eric, Kurt, and Marla have been a joy to work with. They have built a very strong, growing managed IT services business with a wonderful culture and loyal customer base,” said Tim Burke, CEO of NetGain Technologies. “Their people-first approach, exemplified through their EasyIT & Me program, is impressive and aligns to our core values. We’re excited to welcome the EasyIT team to the NetGain family and look forward to supporting their continued growth through collaboration across all of our branch offices.”

Since 1998, EasyIT has supported the technology needs of businesses throughout Central Ohio. What makes them unique in the MSP space? They are one of the only SOC 2, Type II certified IT providers in the area. Plus, their dedication to proactiveness, top-notch service, and all-around IT support sets them apart. Clients receive an exclusive customized services package designed to cater to their individual needs which sets them up for long term success. In addition, they have amazing chemistry amongst the team and a more mature sales and marketing approach than most managed services providers.

“We became aware of NetGain over two years ago when some industry peers merged their MSPs into the NetGain portfolio,” said Kurt Hoeft, CEO of EasyIT. “Their experience was outstanding and that caught our attention. After almost 25 years, the timing seemed right, and we believe being a part of larger organization will help us attain our aspirational service goals much quicker than we could on our own. It also will open opportunities for our staff. Eric and I look forward to evolving EasyIT to the next level with the help of our talented partners at NetGain.”

This acquisition continues to expand NetGain’s presence in the Ohio River Valley Region. “Our acquisition strategy is unique,” said Tim Burke. “We follow a people-first, decentralized approach; meaning the company retains their current staff, branding, culture, and service delivery model in place long term, keeping employees and customers happy and expanding their network to benefit from collaboration across the broader NetGain team. This is a major benefit to MSP owners who are looking to sell their business.”

In the past 12 months, NetGain Technologies, backed by Evergreen Services Group, has made five major acquisitions in the IT services industry. Evergreen, who has multiple platform companies across the U.S. and Canada, has made over 50 MSP acquisitions and investments since 2018. Collectively, we continue to pursue acquisition opportunities for technology firms that want a great home for their employees, customers, and partners.
