Who did it take to make the 1992 U.S. Olympic Basketball team a veritable “Dream Team”?
What did it take to pull wildly different players across the country together to create the U.S. “Miracle on Ice” during the 1980 Winter Olympics?
How did Pearl Jam get individual rockstars to form an ultra-fandom supergroup?
With our roots in the Seattle Area, it’s difficult not to look to supergroups that started in our backyard. When we wanted to build a bigger, stronger team, we took inspiration from bands that changed music, sports teams that spurred legends, and scientific collaborations that changed life as we know it.
Today we’re announcing the merger of four companies: Roseville, CA-based tech staffing company Averro and IT Consulting firm Direct Technology have merged with two Bellevue-based companies, NuWest Technology Staffing and Denali Founder Consulting. The combined company will be called Averro, and will be headquartered in Bellevue, WA.
Averro brings technical staffing and nearshore solutions expertise along with a strong reputation providing excellent consultant care and high touch service to clients.
Denali adds a unique perspective gained through years of working with founders and startups driving growth and advising on finance & accounting, people operations, and growth strategy.
Direct Technology lends deep technical and IT expertise and a proven track record supporting companies globally.
NuWest Technology adds industry-specialized teams with over 30 years of experience staffing in cutting-edge industries including space exploration, next-gen manufacturing, and engineering.
This combined company will focus on what (and who) it takes to propel businesses and careers forward in 2023.
We’re excited to combine these four companies into our very own 'supergroup'. For the past three decades, we've shared a common purpose. Now we're focusing our uncommon solutions and services to create superfans.” - Chad Tremain, CEO of Averro
It may be a giant leap, but like the astronauts of Apollo 11, our combined expertise and resources form a team that can accomplish what was once unimaginable. With our uncommon approach to client partnerships and deep experience in technology, engineering, and business, the Averro team will help clients achieve their own moonshots (and seriously, some of our employees design rockets!).
When asked what excited them most about the merger, members of Averro’s supergroup took the microphone:
