Ken commented, “I am excited to be able to work with Mario and Jorge, who have built an excellent business positioned for significant growth. I am also thrilled about the partnership with DFW Capital Partners, who has demonstrated exceptional integrity and collaboration during the diligence process and who is a major factor in my decision to leave Dell. DFW’s continued support of IntelliSite will expand its service capabilities and accelerate its growth as an industry-leading IoT solutions provider.”
Mario Campos, Founder & President of IntelliSite, said, “We are excited to work with DFW Capital as we enter the next chapter of IntelliSite’s growth.
