Eight months ago, Jacobs acquired software powerhouse BlackLynx to complement the company’s industry-leading cyber, intelligence and digital solutions. Now, that acquisition has been recognized by the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) National Capital with its “Deal of the Year” Award.
The ACG National Capital is an organization dedicated to connecting middle-market business leaders and dealmakers, with a special emphasis on growth activities. On June 8, 2022, during its 20th Corporate Growth Awards ceremony, the ACG National Capital recognized an exclusive group of acquisitions from the past year. In the category of deals from $250M to $1B, Jacobs’ acquisition of BlackLynx was recognized as the best of the best in their class.
“As Jacobs continues its restless pursuit of delivering world-class data solutions and security for its customers, it’s imperative that the technology behind our platforms is absolutely unmatched,” said Caesar Nieves, executive vice president and president of Jacobs’ Divergent Solutions business. “With BlackLynx, we have a partner organization that provides the high integrity, high performance edge, cloud computing and automation capabilities that are optimally in sync with Jacobs’ digital ecosystem, and the ‘Deal of the Year’ recognition by ACG National Capital is a welcome affirmation of the strategic and client-centric focus of our partnership.”
Joining Caesar at the black-tie gala to accept the award on behalf of Jacobs were BlackLynx CEO Doug Wolfe and a number of leaders from Jacobs’ Divergent Solutions team, including Rich Price, John Karabias, Sly Cotton, Dale Rodriguez, Angela Opsitos, Danielle Noe, Barb Hubbell, Gwen Clavon, Terasa Vassallo, Erik Larson and Mike McClain.
