Creative Computing Solutions (CCS) is a provider of program and project management, cyber security, and health-focused IT services to the federal government. CCS was founded in 1992 by Dr. Manju Bewtra and is headquartered in Rockville, MD (www.ccsin.com).
According to DFW, the acquisition of CCS adds complimentary domain expertise and an experienced management team to Information Innovators. “This transaction builds on our goal of creating a strong mid-tier player in the federal IT marketplace with superior capabilities, technical knowledge, customer service and growth prospects,” said Doug Gilbert, a Partner at DFW.
Information Innovators is a provider of IT services management, enterprise-level IT consolidation, cloud hosting, health services, data analytics, software and systems development, informatics, and cyber security. The company serves many departments within the federal government including Veterans Affairs, Food & Drug, Defense, Homeland Security, Transportation, Health and Human Services, Commerce, Justice, Homeland Security, Interior, and Treasury. Information Innovators is led by CEO Steve Ikirt. The company was founded in 2001 and is headquartered near Washington DC in Springfield, VA (www.iiinfo.com).
With the CCS acquisition, Information Innovators now becomes one of the larger mid-tier providers of IT services to the federal marketplace with over 800 employees. Since being acquired by DFW about three years ago, the company has tripled in size and expanded its capabilities in IT infrastructure, software development, healthcare systems, and cyber security.
DFW Capital Partners invests in lower middle-market service companies, with an emphasis on healthcare and outsourced business and industrial support services. The firm is headquartered in Teaneck, NJ, and maintains an office in Chevy Chase, MD (www.dfwcapital.com).
To finance the acquisition of CCS, DFW invested additional preferred equity and expanded Information Innovators’ senior and subordinated debt facilities.
