San Francisco IT Provider Expands Service Footprint into Pacific Northwest to Include Vancouver WA and Portland OR.

Renascence IT Consulting, headquartered in Newark, California, has acquired Uplinc, a Managed Services Provider serving the Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA markets.

Renascence IT Consulting, will remain under the leadership of CEO Kirk Lesser, who remains committed to the Bay Area but wishes to better serve individuals and businesses seeking geographical alternatives.

Through the acquisition of Uplinc, Renascence IT Consulting enhances its capabilities and combines expertise to meet the evolving needs of clients exploring new horizons beyond the constraints of the Bay Area’s real estate market.
