Five Companies That Came To Win This Week


Heartland Technology Solutions Sold To WesTel Systems

Heartland Technology Solutions, a Harlan, Iowa-based VAR led by highly-regarded CEO Arlin Sorensen, has been sold to WesTel Systems for an undisclosed amount, according to Sorensen.

Heartland will continue to operate under the HTS banner as a division of its new parent company, West Iowa Technology. HTS President Connie Arentson and Vice President of Sales Larry Hedin will continue to work for HTS, while Sorensen and several other executives, including COO Jane Cage, will serve in an advisory capacity through a transition period, according to Heartland.

"This transition will give me more time to focus on a new consulting practice to help other MSPs and IT vendors (Heartland Leadership Group) and will give Jane freedom to pursue other interests," said Sorenson.
