GreatAmerica’s Collabrance Celebrates 10 Year Milestone

GreatAmerica Financial Services celebrated the 10-year anniversary of Collabrance, its subsidiary technology company initially formed to support GreatAmerica channel partners’ success. Collabrance now supports a variety of vendors across the U.S. from its operations center in Iowa.

Collabrance was an unlikely departure from financing, but made perfect sense to GreatAmerica as surveys showed its channel partners were keen on adapting to new changes in the market and responding to deeper technology support needs. Collabrance became a “Master MSP” with white-label IT solutions and services designed to help its vendor customers go to market faster while mitigating their risk and overhead.

In an industry with frequent mergers and acquisitions, the Master MSP stands out in the IT Channel for its choice to remain a privately-held company all U.S. based.

Today, Collabrance remains a privately held, U.S.-based company and is recognized by the IT Channel in MSSP Alert, CIO Review, Channel Futures and Enterprise Security Magazine as a leader for their contributions to managed service providers (MSPs). Collabrance has a live-answer network operations center (NOC) and help desk located in Cedar Rapids, IA.

“We’re excited to use this moment to reflect on the past 10 years, look ahead to evolve our business into the future, and celebrate all we’ve accomplished together,” says Greg VanDeWalker, vice president of IT Channel & Services at GreatAmerica and Collabrance. “We have many people to thank. First, our amazing team members who deliver exceptional IT service experiences daily. Next, thank you to the committed MSPs who entrust us with their customers. It is a big responsibility that we humbly embrace.”

Founded by CEO Tony Golobic in 1992, GreatAmerica is a $2 billion national commercial equipment finance company which provides financing, third party portfolio servicing, and niche market-focused services such as Collabrance, in all fifty states and several U.S. Territories.
