MOUNTAINGATE CAPITAL PLATFORM HS2 SOLUTIONS COMPLETES SECOND ADD-ON ACQUISITION
DENVER, July 11, 2018 – HS2 Solutions, an award-winning digital brand experience agency backed by Denver private equity firm Mountaingate Capital, announced on June 28th, 2018 that it had completed the acquisition of Infield Digital, a leading digital experience consultancy serving the west coast and mountain west regions. This marks HS2’s second acquisition since partnering with Mountaingate in November 2016. The acquisition deepens HS2’s commitment to be the leading independent Adobe Experience Cloud provider as well as strengthens its ability to deliver personalization in complex eCommerce transactional environments.
Infield Digital provides Customer Experience Management (CXM) solutions that integrate with customer data and transactional systems. As a certified Adobe, Magento, and Elastic Path Business Partner, Infield Digital designs modern digital marketing solutions on a foundation of data, design, and engineering for clients such as Adobe, Cloudera, Dropbox, Informatica, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Orgain.
“Infield Digital has made a name for itself over the past 15 years through high-quality delivery, transparency, and integrity. Infield has also developed a deep pool of talent focusing on eCommerce, enterprise CMS, and custom integrations,” said Phil Hollyer, HS2 Solutions co-founder and CEO. “By combining our talent and experience, HS2 is better able to scale to meet the needs of Adobe Experience Cloud and eCommerce clients across the country.”
The acquisition of Infield Digital is a continuation of HS2’s long-term strategic plan to expand the services it offers to clients. While historically focused on the implementation and optimization of digital experience platforms such as Adobe, Drupal, Magento, Google, and mobile platforms, HS2 recently deepened its Analytics & Insight and Digital Marketing Strategy capabilities through the acquisition of LunaMetrics in December 2017. HS2 and Infield Digital now share partnerships and certifications with Google, Adobe, Acquia, Magento, Elastic Path, and Digital River.
“HS2 has built an impressive company, and we’re excited about future opportunities as a combined firm,” said Marc Infield, former CEO of Infield Digital and now VP of Digital Experience Platforms at HS2 Solutions. “This partnership expands the set of services we can offer our clients and deepens our digital experience platform reach and analytics capabilities. We will continue to be laser-focused on the attentive, results-driven service that our clients expect, and we’ll now be able to provide even more comprehensive solutions.”
With the acquisition of Infield Digital, HS2 solidifies its leadership in providing unparalleled Adobe Experience Cloud solutions. Some Adobe awards and accolades of the combined firm include:
- Awarded Adobe Emerging Partner of the Year
- Developer of the reference connector between Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) and Magento using Adobe Commerce Framework (CIF)
- Developer of the Marketo to AEM connector available in Adobe Exchange
- #1 Contributor of code and features to ACS AEM Commons
- Multiple team members named finalists and winner of the AEM Rock Star award
- Co-winners of the AEM Community Code Contest
- Awarded more speaking slots at Adobe IMMERSE than any other firm
- Awarded an AEM specialization
- Awarded over 50 certifications across the entire Adobe Experience Cloud
- Impressive Adobe Campaign and Adobe Analytics customer successes
Colton King, Managing Director of Mountaingate, commented, “Marc Infield and his impressive team have built Infield Digital with an unwavering focus on achieving client results. This approach is central to the HS2 philosophy as well, and we are thrilled to welcome a like-minded group of business leaders to our partnership.”
With Infield Digital, HS2 Solutions continues to expand its physical presence across the country and in Europe. In addition to its two Chicago-based collaboration centers, a collaboration center in Pittsburgh, and team hubs in Green Bay and Detroit, HS2 now adds Infield’s offices in San Francisco, Denver, and Berlin to its growing footprint.
