2021 has been a banner year at Since January, we have tripled in size, completed more than one hundred projects, added a strong, Los Angeles-based IT Support Team through M&A, and have had countless examples of going above and beyond for our partners. 

Personally, I am so grateful to get to work with such caring, energetic, dedicated and professional teammates. Additionally, I am thankful every day to get to serve clients with noble, ambitious, and inspiring missions. Lastly, we are supported by partners that make doing business enjoyable, fun and rewarding.  

Crazy Growth in 2021

2020 was a tough year for small businesses across America. While it was a challenging year at Interlaced, we were very lucky for a few key reasons. First, we had the opportunity to form deeper bonds with our clients. Second, the macroeconomic environment forced us to think creatively about our service packages, focusing son helping our clients grow and protect their assets. Lastly, our team grew closer asa we bested challenges. 

Over the course of 2021, we more than doubled in size, growing from 16 to 35 teammates. In this growth, we added teammates with strong skill sets in networking, IT Service Management, Identity Access Management, email security, Workspace, Microsoft 365, and cloud architecture. 

Finally, in October, we completed the acquisition of Three18, Inc, adding Los Angeles as a core market. We’ve been so impressed by the entire Three18 Team and look forward to continuing to empower the leadership team to support their clients and grow their stewardship over the LA market.

A world-class team of IT Professionals

We are so proud of our team. Our team shows up every day for our clients. They live our values. They constantly surprise us with deep care for our clients, ownership over our business, and support for their teammates. We appreciate you! 

Awesome clients and partners

Additionally, we have countless partners that have contributed greatly to our success in 2021. On the technology side, OneLogin and Addigy have been crucial in helping us accelerate our service model. 

In the community, we’ve been proud to support (and receive support from), The Honor Foundation, SEGD, LaunchBio, and The San Diego Tech Hub. 

Finally, we are so grateful for the partnership, trust, confidence, and guidance from Executech and Evergreen Services Group.

Looking ahead…

We are all looking forward to closing out 2021 strong. Additionally we are so excited for what we can accomplish TOGETHER in 2022.

I am so grateful to be part of Team Interlaced!
