Based in Herndon, Virginia, C2SCG will become part of Smartronix’ Cloud Solutions business unit under President John Sankovich. The company brings deep technical expertise and cutting-edge solutions that strengthen Smartronix’ position as a leader in cloud.

LaMontagne emphasized the strategic value of the acquisition stating, “C2SCG’s strong presence in the US Intelligence Community and impressive technical depth significantly enhance our leadership position in the cloud solutions market.”
Sankovich says: “The acquisition of C2SCG strengthens our unique market position as a leader in multi-cloud solutions and digital transformation. The addition of top talent from C2SCG and that of recently acquired Datastrong, combined with our in-house expertise, truly advances our vision to empower clients with innovative cloud solutions and data intelligence to realise the maximum return on their strategic investments.”
C2SCG Chief Operating Officer Kevin Smith will report to Sankovich and lead a newly formed division under the Cloud Solutions business unit, which will oversee all Department of Defense and Intelligence Community clients and operations.
