Artisan Technology Group announced it is joining forces with Kansas City’s premier mobile development company, Engage Mobile Solutions.
Both Artisan and Engage Mobile have experienced tremendous growth since their founding nearly 10 years ago. Both organizations have established reputations in the Kansas City region for successfully taking on challenging and complex projects in their respective areas of expertise.
“If you look at how both of these organizations have grown their teams and capabilities over the years, it makes a lot of sense to bring the skillsets together to create the most trusted technology provider in the area, with the most talented and capable team in Kansas City,” Artisan CEO, Mike Zimmerman said. “The Engage Mobile team brings a great deal of experience in mobile strategy, design and development that complements the depth and breadth of Artisan’s services and solutions.”
Darrin Clawson, founder of Engage Mobile and new CTO of Artisan added, “With our combined teams, we now have nearly 50 highly experienced IT professionals in-house, with cross-platform and full-stack development expertise. This gives us the opportunity to service and support our clients in a whole new set of ways. With our new size and strengths, we will be able to support any organization with virtually any complex business challenge they present.”
Engage Mobile’s impressive list of clients, including some of the largest and most well-known companies in Kansas City, will also be making the transition into this new chapter under the Artisan Technology brand. The Engage team will join Artisan at their headquarters off Ward Parkway and quickly renovate the second floor of their building as they create an exciting, tech-centered space for associates, clients, partners and community to collaboratively design and build innovative solutions together.
The new ownership team at Artisan will be comprised of Mike Zimmerman as CEO, Scott Lippert as President, Darrin Clawson as CTO and former co-owner of Engage Mobile, Steve Timperley serving as their Chief Revenue Officer.
