Select Communications Completes Second Acquisition in 12 Months

Technology solutions provider Select Communications has acquired Lighthouse Conferencing, a Denver-area reseller of collaboration and conferencing services. The acquisition comes just 12 months after Select Communications acquired GCI Conferencing in 2018. Finalized on July 1, this latest acquisition sees the solution provider bolster its organization with the additions of Lighthouse Conferencing’s staff and customer base, solidifying the Austin-based company as one of the most experienced and innovative collaboration providers on the market.

Select Communications CEO Jerry Goldman describes the acquisition of Lighthouse Conferencing as the “the perfect marriage.”

“Our number-one core value at Select is being ‘people-first,’” says Goldman. “The second we met the Lighthouse team, we knew that we had found a provider that approaches service the same way we do. An acquisition was the best way to combine our teams’ respective qualities to create a truly unique solution for collaboration customers.”

The addition of Lighthouse Conferencing’s staff and portfolio enriches the solutions provider’s existing suite of conferencing and collaboration products. As a result, Select Communications customers benefit from added expertise and more robust solutions in the areas of webcasting and virtual events.

According to Lighthouse Conferencing Chief Event Officer Marc Gutman, his existing customers can expect two things from the acquisition process: broader solutions and exceptional quality of service.

“We see this as the next big investment into our business,” says Gutman. “Not only can we help our customers with conferencing, but now we can bundle in next-generation products for bandwidth and cybersecurity to create an end-to-end solution.”

Gutman joins the Select Communications executive advisory team and will immediately contribute to the company’s strategic direction and business development plans. However, he remains intimately involved in his relationships with existing Lighthouse Conferencing customers.

“At Lighthouse, we’ve always felt that if you take care of your customers, everything else will fall into place. I’m excited to join forces with a team in Select Communications that enables us to go above and beyond our promise to our customers,” says Gutman.
