Two of the world's leading Microsoft Business Solutions providers - ePartners and EYT - announced that they are merging, becoming a leading provider of Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS) in North America.

The merger of ePartners, the largest North American Microsoft Business Solutions technology company and EYT, formerly Ernst and Young Technologies, accelerates both organizations' go-to-market strategies and vertical market offerings. The combined company will operate as ePartners. Dan Duffy, CEO of ePartners, will continue as CEO. Howard S. Diamond, CEO and chairman of EYT, will assume responsibility as executive chairman and chairman of the board for ePartners.

"This is truly an exciting time for ePartners," said Duffy. "The merger of these two organizations is great for our employees, clients and Microsoft. The new organization has wider geographic reach, a greater IP offering and enhanced vertical market expertise. The combined companies extend our reach into the Microsoft organization bringing our clients unprecedented expertise and access to the Microsoft solutions offering."

ePartners will employ over 400 staff, including 220 solution consultants. The company will be headquartered in Seattle, WA, with 29 total offices, including one in London.

"This is yet another great step for both organizations," said Diamond. "We are creating a new force in the industry with the capital, size, scope and talent to impact the market in a massive way. The quality and breadth of our combined teams will allow us to deliver unmatched value to our clients and Microsoft."
