ISS Solutions and Geisinger Acquire Paradigm Technology Consulting, LLC

Peter Brooks and Bridgette A. Hobart Janeczko

Langhorne, PA, May 1, 2017 – ISS Solutions, a Geisinger business and leading provider of customized technology lifecycle management solutions to healthcare, government, education, and commercial clients throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia, announced today ISS Solutions’ and Geisinger’s acquisition of Paradigm Technology Consulting, LLC (PTC) of Allentown, NJ. PTC will continue to be run as an independent business led by current PTC President Bridgette A. Hobart Janeczko, CPA, MS, CITP, who will also become a member of ISS Solutions’ executive team.

Peter Brooks, CEO of ISS Solutions, stated, “I admire Bridgette’s entrepreneurial spirit, long-term client relationships, and can-do attitude. Immediately after meeting Bridgette for the first time about one year ago, I knew that she – with her enthusiastic, open, and honest approach – would make a great addition to our team. Key to the decision to acquire PTC was ISS Solutions’ desire to expand more rapidly the number of enterprise application solutions we provide our clients. We’ve had our eye on Microsoft Dynamics for a while and were glad to find a company with deep expertise in developing, customizing, and delivering Microsoft Dynamics-based solutions.” Mr. Brooks further expanded, “Key to finalizing the new Geisinger ownership structure for PTC was allowing PTC to maintain its independence in pursuing existing technology development plans and service delivery methodologies. I’m also pleased to announce that the entire staff has agreed to remain with PTC, so the transfer will be smooth for clients and employees alike.”

Ms. Hobart Janeczko also sees significant upside to joining the Geisinger and ISS Solutions families. “My first concern when considering any acquisition is culture. And I’m convinced that there’s a good match culturally between PTC and ISS Solutions. Beyond that, since PTC has had some focus on healthcare in general and behavioral health in particular, becoming a part of the larger Geisinger organization is also a good fit. We look forward to working as a team to continue our tradition of strong client services.”

With the expanded resources behind her, Ms. Hobart Janeczko will be able to devote even more time to working with PTC clients.
