Small Enterprise SituAction: A New CIO Prepares for M&A

Mergers and acquisitions are challenging for many IT leaders in small enterprises. Use Info-Tech’s resources to assist with appropriate due diligence and prepare for eventual integration.

Situation: A long-time Info-Tech member joins a large professional services firm spread across several Canadian provinces with smaller operations in South America and the southern United States. Within a few months, her new company is acquired by a private equity (PE) firm as part of a strategy to consolidate that particular corner of the market.

Complication: The acquisition changes the role of IT and the newly minted CIO. She had expected to fulfill a largely operational role, but now has a much more strategic one. The PE partners expect her to be involved in due diligence as they pursue new acquisition targets. She is excited by the change in role, but also intimidated due to her lack of familiarity with mergers and acquisitions.

She needs to get up to speed. Fast.
