Jeskell To Again Become IBM Federal VAR


A team of investors has acquired solution provider Jeskell from its original owner, FusionStorm, and are returning it to its roots as an independent federal government solution provider.

San Francisco-based solution provider FusionStorm on Tuesday said it was selling its Jeskell business. Financial details of the contract were not released.

The investors include two of the principals of CAS Severn, a Laurel, Md.-based solution provider which does about one-third of its business with the federal government, along with a third person whose identity has not yet been made public.

One of those principals, Carson Soule, CEO of CAS Severn, said Jeskell will be run as a completely independent company, and will return to its original business model with a focus on bringing IBM products and services to the federal government. His partner from CAS Severn is Doug Gerstmyer, president of CAS Severn

"Jeskell will be a free-standing company," Soule said. "As of today, we've hired everybody we think we'll hire. We have the entire federal team. So it's the same old Jeskell to IBM, and the same old Jeskell to the customers."
