Jackson Walker represented Keste, a leading provider of B2B digital transformation services, in the sale of its business to Trinity Hunt Partners for an undisclosed amount.

Founded in 2004 and headquartered in Dallas, Keste spearheads end-to-end complex digital transformation initiatives, including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ), public cloud, and business intelligence initiatives.

In Trinity Hunt’s announcement, Keste CEO Howard Moore said, “We chose Trinity Hunt as our partner due to their experience in IT services, focus on preserving strong cultures, and their track record of growth through acquisition strategies.” President Sri Ayyeppen also noted, “We believe this partnership will fuel our company’s growth and strengthen our capabilities for our customers and our employees.”

Keste is Trinity Hunt’s third platform investment in IT services after Improving (custom software/application development services) and Dataprise (IT managed services). Through this partnership, Moore and Ayyeppen will remain shareholders and managers of the company.

The Jackson Walker team was led by Corporate & Securities Chair Richard F. Dahlson and included Joseph T. Guajardo, Ronald D. Kerridge, and Serene W. Ateek.
