“ITLynk and Involta are very closely aligned, and we’re looking forward to blending our teams, strengthening our business relationships in northeastern Ohio and helping our customers with their cloud and IT service needs,” Involta CEO Bruce Lehrman said.

Involta is based in Cedar Rapids and has 250 employees nationwide.

Spokesman Chris Massey said there are no plans to move IT Lynk employees to Eastern Iowa.
