Teaneck’s Ness Digital Engineering acquires Sovereign CRM

Teaneck-based Ness Digital Engineering, a portfolio company of The Rohatyn Group, announced Thursday it has acquired Sovereign CRM, a Salesforce consultancy.

The deal will allow Ness Digital to expand its cloud and platform engineering practice, it said.

“Many companies rely on Salesforce as their platform for launching highly complex, digital applications to drive their businesses, and Sovereign CRM has already distinguished itself as an innovator in this area,” Ness Digital CEO Paul Lombardo said. “We’ll immediately bring this value-added expertise to existing clients while positioning ourselves to capitalize on new growth opportunities globally.”

Under terms of the acquisition, Sovereign CRM will keep its name and join Linium as a “Ness Digital Engineering Company”. Eric Borthwick will continue to lead Ness’s expansion efforts in Salesforce solutions as well as manage its relationship with Salesforce.

“Our offering is highly differentiated and in demand, and with Ness’s global footprint and complementary software engineering capabilities, we can quickly seize upon this opportunity,” Borthwick, founder of Sovereign CRM, said. “Together, we’ll help businesses turn Salesforce momentum into broader digital capabilities that provide real competitive advantage.”
