The Channel Company acquires Incisive Media's Technology Properties including CPI, CRN UK, and Computing.
With the strategic acquisition, The Channel Company will increase its EMEA footprint, expand CRN as a global brand, and leverage Computing media and events as part of an effort to create a worldwide IT end user community.
The Channel Company, parent company of CRN, has completed its acquisition of the technology division of London-based Incisive Media, including its Computing, CRN UK and Channel Partner Insight properties, The Channel Company said Friday.
The strategic acquisition reunites the CRN and CRN UK brands within the same company and marks a significant step in The Channel Company's aspirations to make CRN a global brand.
The deal also creates an opportunity to leverage the Computing brand from Incisive Media and The Channel Company's Midsize Enterprise Services brand to fuel The Channel Company's efforts to create a global IT end user community.
Simon Chappell, CEO of Assured Data Protection said: "I was delighted to see the news of the US and UK CRN platforms joining forces.
As CEO of a company with twin HQs in the UK and US it is extremely beneficial to be able to share our message across both continents consistently. CRN has always been a key media platform of choice in both locations, and the recent news only adds to this perspective."
