Structured Acquires Verge Technologies, Expands In California


Structured brings extensive services, solutions and broader access to infosec expertise to the new market.

PORTLAND, Ore. (Dec. 2, 2020) – In a move to expand its leading-edge IT solutions and services on the West Coast, Structured acquired Silicon Valley-based Verge Technologies.

Structured, a nationally acclaimed solution provider specializing in security, cloud, and digital infrastructure, brings a national footprint and nearly 30 years of enterprise IT engineering, security consulting, and business insight to the pairing. Verge, meanwhile, has been in business for 18 years, providing its customers with comprehensive network design, technology lifecycle management, and security services.

“Structured’s commitment to bringing strategic advantage to its customers in the form of elegant, secure and manageable IT perfectly mirrors Verge’s approach,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “We are like-minded companies, with talented people and strong vendor relationships, and I am excited about what we will be able to achieve together.”

For customer convenience and simplicity, Verge Technologies will continue operations as a Structured company. Former Verge Owner Perry Dearaway will remain with the company and will continue to serve clients in the same closely aligned, strategic and consultative manner they’ve always experienced. However, Verge will also be able to tap Structured’s phenomenal engineering resources and vendor relationships to bring a wider array of solutions to market and reach new customer segments.

“Structured is the perfect partner for Verge,” said Dearaway. “As we embarked on our journey to find an ally that could enhance our value, we were thrilled to find an organization with the technical skill, business focus, and attention to customer satisfaction we desired. Structured brings that and more.”

California-based clients will continue to receive the very same high-touch care and attention that Dearaway and his team have always delivered. Now, however, this service excellence will be enhanced by access to a large, diverse and deeply skilled team of engineering experts and a broad range of professional services offered by Structured.

Further, Structured’s vendor partner relationships and solution offerings will also strongly complement and greatly expand those historically available through Verge. Under the new arrangement, customers could consolidate their solution partner relationships and still expand access to desirable and business-proven technology and services.
