“The acquisition of Telesis is transformational for Belcan’s Government IT Solutions business, immediately adding complementary capabilities and greater scale,” said Lance Kwasniewski, CEO of Belcan. “Telesis not only has close, long-term relationships with leading federal customers, but its solutions and services are well-aligned with future federal spending priorities in the U.S. We look forward to working with the Company’s talented management team to unlock the potential of the combined companies.”
