“The Groundswell name reflects our commitment to bringing an unstoppable, seismic technology change to government,” Groundswell CEO George Batsakis said in a statement published Tuesday.
The combined entity will maintain its headquarters in McLean, Virginia, and Groundswell founders Blake Templeman, Justin Watts and Eric Grinnalds will stay with the company as operating executives and investors.
Groundswell Consulting provides Appian development and integration support services to U.S. federal agencies.
The integrated company expects the transaction to expand its presence within the defense and federal civilian markets and strengthen its position as an Appian integrator within the public sector.
“Together, we’ve formed a company that is focused on modernizing and transforming how the government delivers services through the application of next-generation technologies, expert talent, and modern, cloud- and platform-delivered applications and business models,” said Batsakis.
