Cloud Sherpas Targets Midwest with Beloit Acquisition

It looks like Google Apps reseller Cloud Sherpas is on an expansion binge. The company today announced its second acquisition this month, this time picking up Overland Park, Kan.-based Beloit Solutions Group for an undisclosed amount.

Atlanta-based Cloud Sherpas broadened its footprint earlier this month when it acquired Omnetic, based in San Francisco, giving the company a coveted West Coast presence. By acquiring Omnetic, Cloud Sherpas said it now has the largest concentration of Google Apps Certified Deployment Specialists outside of Google.

With offices in Austin, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., the acquisition of Beloit will increase that count of specialists and give Cloud Sherpas further penetration into the Midwest, where the company sees a large concentration of enterprises that are now Microsoft-centric.

"They've sold large accounts, which will be key for us as we target Microsoft enterprise customers in the Midwest," said Cloud Sherpas CEO Jon Hallet in a statement. "They also have deep technical skills and impressive business acumen, making them important long-term assets for Cloud Sherpas. We're excited to bring the entire Beloit team into the Cloud Sherpas fold, as we aim to work more closely with Google sales reps throughout the Midwest region."

Beloit's key customers include customers include Cosentino's Food Stores and the Midwest Air Traffic Control Systems.
