As many of you saw, Stone Temple Consulting was acquired by the publicly traded company Perficient – here is the press release.
Eric Enge and his wife own the company, but most of you just know Eric. He has been a huge supporter of the search community over the years, not just by financially sponsoring events but also by contributing content, data, information and so much of his time and resources to the community. Let’s also not forget employing 60 some people in our industry. He says this will not change with the acquisition, he will continue to be in a position to continue these efforts. I have more about Eric’s contributions to the industry over here.
Perficient the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it has acquired Stone Temple Consulting Corporation, an award-winning Boston-based $9 million annual revenue digital marketing agency.
The acquisition is expected to be accretive to adjusted earnings per share immediately.
I am pleased to announce that Stone Temple Consulting has been acquired by Perficient (PRFT) @Perficient @PRFTdigital. We’ll continue to provide the same high quality digital marketing services to our clients that we always have. https://t.co/bzmxN3zuNA https://t.co/JjRqLqfGSk

Also want to be clear for everyone that although I’m getting a share of the congrats for this, I am not an owner of Stone Temple. I am a very public face of the company, obviously, and I am very excited to continue to be.
