AHEAD Announces New, Unified Corporate Brand Following the Merger with Data Blue and Recent Acquisitions
Digital infrastructure leader AHEAD unveils a new singular identity
CHICAGO – January 27, 2020 – AHEAD, a leading provider of enterprise cloud solutions, today unveiled a unified corporate identity following the recent merger with Data Blue and acquisitions of Link Solutions Group, Sovereign Systems and Platform Consulting Group. The company’s new brand identity, including new logo and website, reflects its core values, capabilities and mission-focused culture.
“By combining Data Blue and AHEAD, while adding smaller, yet strategic acquisitions, we’ve significantly enhanced our relevance and scale to the benefit of clients,” said Daniel Adamany, CEO at AHEAD. “As we move forward under one identity, we’ve collectively decided to adopt AHEAD as our company name. It’s a label that embodies our motivation to continuously improve. And just like our clients and partners, we will always be looking, thinking and moving ahead.”
As a builder of platforms for digital business, AHEAD now delivers holistic solutions across enterprise cloud infrastructure, intelligent operations and modern cloud-native applications. The company’s new brand identity amplifies its mission to learn, grow and achieve—together as a team as well as with its partners and clients. That shared mission works in tandem with its core values of collaborate, innovate and drive.
“To fulfill our growth strategy, we’ve invested heavily in the talent behind our new company,” added Stephen Ayoub, president of AHEAD and former CEO of Data Blue. “We did this organically by collectively hiring more than 200 engineers in 2019, and now acquisitively by combining these five highly complementary firms.”
Headquartered in Chicago, with additional hubs in Nashville and Atlanta, the new AHEAD employs 600 people in 16 offices across the U.S. As one of the largest providers of digital infrastructure with more than $1.3 billion in gross revenues, AHEAD serves clients in multiple industries, and is a market leader in healthcare, insurance and financial services.
