PHOENIX, July 29, 2020 - Today marks the official launch of GMI (Global Market Innovators), one of the largest women and minority-owned Information Technology Solutions companies in the United States.
GMI was formed by industry leaders General Microsystems Inc., nVision Networking, Inc., and Extreme Integration, who merged to combine their expertise, leadership, and best-in-class technology. The merger was the result of a multi-year nationwide search for businesses with compatible commitments to innovation, customer service, employee development, and community involvement.
General Microsystems was represented by IT ExchangeNet (ITX), a mid-market mergers and acquisitions firm specializing in IT Cloud and Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs).
GMI is positioned to be an established, trusted advisor, combining three industry leaders known for blending technology best practices from industry leaders and in-field experience to deliver successful outcomes for customers. As a certified diversity supplier, GMI is one of the most experienced and skilled minority-owned small businesses in the nation. With a combined 75-plus years in the IT services industry, the newly launched GMI will deliver an even more comprehensive and extensive array of IT solutions to commercial and government customers.
“We are genuinely excited about this new chapter for our organization,” said Simer S. Mayo, CEO of GMI. “We will leverage our combined years of industry knowledge to develop customer-centric, comprehensive, vendor-neutral solutions that utilize best in class technology to solve pressing business challenges.”
“ITX utilized their extensive network to identify dozens of qualified buyers for GMI, resulting in this merger. The results exceeded our high expectations,” said Earl Overstreet, President of GMI. “Our customers are facing the challenge of providing secure anytime, anywhere access to an expanding array of IT services and solutions in an increasingly complex environment, often with flat or declining budgets. There is an urgent need for our customers to leverage technology in ways that deliver significant value to our stakeholders.”
The new GMI will provide end-to-end IT infrastructure technology solutions with a particular emphasis on compute and storage, voice/data networks and collaboration, security, managed and professional services, cloud, IT support and operations, and endpoint products.
As has been foundational to its legacy companies, GMI will continue to focus on employee development and giving back to local communities. GMI will be headquartered in Arizona with additional offices in Washington and Idaho, Costa Rica, and the Philippines. To learn more, visit www.gmi.com.
