Like-Minded Merger

Ayoub told CRN that the executives at the three companies have known each other for years. He said it just made sense to create a stronger whole from their parts.

“I respect them, they respect us. For years we've been talking to the manufacturers and they've been saying, ‘There's a company just like you up in Chicago.’ And they're telling him, ‘There's a company just like you down in Atlanta.’

It just worked because there was no geographical overlap. I've known the Sovereign guys for 15 years. We're friends. We're competitors, but we're friends. One of my partners has a vacation house that they share with them. We’ll drink beer on Friday together. We play golf together. So it just works with the same mentality on how we go to market. It's good for us.”
