Two leading managed information technology services providers in Southwest Florida are coming together as Fort Myers-based Entech and ITVantage completed a merger that doubles the size of the company. The combined company, which will provide network and managed business IT solutions to business clients of all sizes throughout the state, will operate as Entech and support more than 17 different industries, company officials announced. 

The two former competitors in the market see the merger as positioning Entech for growth, Entech CEO Jake Spanberger said. The new team primarily comprises senior-level IT engineers and desktop technicians. Company officials expect the companies to pool their resources, which will allow Entech to offer IT project delivery, public and private cloud services, business continuity, backup and data protection, cybersecurity, risk management and compliance as well as health care technologies. 

Under Entech, Spanberger will continue to serve as CEO, and Buddy Martin will remain president. Jeremy Stakely, formerly of ITVantage, will serve as executive vice president and chief strategy officer, responsible for strategic growth initiatives and key relationships.   

Entech, which also has offices in Naples and Bradenton, plans to leverage the combined knowledge in vertical industries to serve as experts in digital transformation, cloud and information security. While Entech brings experience in serving local nonprofits, education, construction and hospitality businesses, ITVantage brings experience in managing IT in health care, finance and insurance. 

With the increased company size, Entech will take on the combined roster of small and mid-size clients of both companies. The leadership team plans to expand through acquisition in both current and adjacent markets.
