Optomi Professional Services is pleased to announce its partnership with San Francisco-based private equity firm FFL Partners (“FFL”) today.  The investment solidifies the Company’s strength and potential for significant expansion on the back of nine years of above-market organic growth and a current revenue run rate of $200 million. 

“We’re thrilled to partner with FFL to continue empowering our clients to achieve their digital transformation initiatives,” said Chuck Ruggiero, CEO of Optomi Professional Services. “We’re confident that FFL’s resources and expertise will further enable Optomi to meet the demand for next generation IT talent and provide Provalus with more opportunity to launch additional delivery center locations that benefit rural U.S. communities.” 

Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Atlanta, OPS provides technology consulting, team augmentation and domestic rural outsourcing services to Fortune-listed clients all across the U.S.  OPS operates through two primary brands: Optomi, which focuses on high-end IT consulting and staff augmentation, and Provalus, a trailblazing provider of domestic IT outsourcing through jobs in rural communities that contribute to their revitalization. The Company’s services include a wide range of cybersecurity, data modernization, software engineering, cloud & infrastructure, helpdesk, customer experience and business optimization consulting services.

OPS Cofounder and Board Chairman, Michael Winwood commented, “We’re immensely proud of what we have built over the last nine years since our inception.

OPS was built on the back of strong core values and we are pleased to have found such a culturally-aligned partner in FFL, whose knowledge and experience in our industry will help propel us to the next level of success.”

“The need for expert IT talent in software development, cybersecurity, data modernization and business optimization has never been greater, and OPS is helping companies solve the technology talent shortfall in new and unique ways” said Jonathon Bunt, Director at FFL Partners.
