Updated: Apr 6

Welcomes a Team of ServiceNow Experts to Continue Providing Exceptional Services to Customers and Becomes The Largest ServiceNow Partner Exclusively Dedicated To ServiceNow.



Boston, Massachusetts (April 5, 2021) — GlideFast Consulting, an Elite ServiceNow Partner and leading IT consulting, implementation, and development company, has acquired CloudPires, a fellow Elite ServiceNow Partner based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Both companies share common roots and values as they were each founded by leaders who first worked as ServiceNow customers then transitioned into the consulting side of the industry to deliver innovative solutions and services to customers.

This acquisition positions GlideFast Consulting as the largest partner in the ecosystem to be 100% dedicated to ServiceNow.


“We are elated to join forces with CloudPires and work together to become the largest ServiceNow partner exclusively dedicated to ServiceNow. The experienced professionals at CloudPires will fit seamlessly into the GlideFast team in order to support our combined clients. We look forward to watching our new team members prosper and provide exceptional knowledge and services to our team and clients,” explained Michael Lombardo, CEO of GlideFast Consulting.

GlideFast Consulting will welcome over 50 new team members from CloudPires, including CloudPires CEO, Mat Barter, and CloudPires CTO, Matt Saxton. CloudPires is an Elite ServiceNow partner headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio offering implementation, process consulting, staff augmentation, custom application development, and instance administration services for the ServiceNow platform. Since inception, GlideFast Consulting has become a ServiceNow Elite partner and recognized as #341 on the Inc. 5000 list of the 2020 fastest-growing companies in the United States.

Mat Barter, founder and CEO of CloudPires, commented: “Joining GlideFast Consulting feels like a natural step in the right direction since both organizations have the same origins (both founding teams were once clients of ServiceNow). Our combined ‘client first’ approach makes us unique in the ServiceNow partner ecosystem and our clients have and always will benefit from this experience. As we have seen over the last 12 months, organizations are continuing to take their digital transformation journey to new heights and ServiceNow is at the center. With this merger, we will be best positioned to support them on that journey.”

Barter will join GlideFast as Chief Delivery Officer leading their delivery and professional services organization.

“CloudPires and GlideFast Consulting have the top architects, developers, and technical consultants in the industry. By combining the extensive knowledge and expertise of both teams, we’re looking forward to providing and delivering innovative ServiceNow solutions to our customers,” said Matt Saxton, the co-founder and CTO of CloudPires who will become a Senior Technical Consultant at GlideFast Consulting.

This union of two Elite Partners will allow ServiceNow customers to benefit from the combined experience of the companies’ highly-skilled ServiceNow consultants, architects, and developers. GlideFast Consulting remains committed to excellence on its journey to becoming the leading ServiceNow partner across North America and globally.
