STACK, a fast-growing platform transforming the way enterprises design and select Internet infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has acquired United Technology LLC, a technology consulting firm specializing in complex network deployments for real-time applications.

Van de Bovenkamp founded United Technology in 2005 after more than 15 years as a top sales manager at major global telecommunications companies such as CenturyLink (now Lumen), WorldCom and Moscow Cellular.

“Before founding United Technology, I enjoyed a successful and varied career working for several of the major telecom operators,” said Van de Bovenkamp. “I started the company to provide exceptional service not only to suppliers but to customers as well, and I knew that representing as a distributor would achieve that goal.”

She leveraged her extensive customer and industry relationships in the US, Europe, the Caribbean, and South and Central America to secure her first five corporate customers, all of whom are United Technology customers today.

United Technology continues to advise global companies on managed services infrastructure, workplace and workforce transformation, network transformation, security and managed application services. Over the past seven years, the company has posted annual growth of 30 percent, posting its best year ever in 2020 amid the pandemic.

The company’s success sparked unsolicited offers from buyers. Van de Bovenkamp entertained the conversations, but it wasn’t until she spoke to UPSTACK that it “just clicked”. “It was fascinating to learn that UPSTACK shares a similar vision to provide its customers with an elevated experience, not just in procurement, but throughout the lifecycle management of complex technology services,” she said.

“My top professional priority is to make sure my clients get more – more from me, more resources, more support,” said Van de Bovenkamp. “Staying active with my customers and having access to UPSTACK for collaboration, shared knowledge and best practices has been amazing. I’m excited to offer customers more pre and post sales support and life cycle management. It’s great to be a part of the UPSTACK team.”
