TriNet Acquires Ambrose
On Monday, July 1st we closed on the sale of Ambrose to our good friends at TriNet. This is a win, win, win, for our clients, for Ambrose and for TriNet. There is a very strong cultural similarity between the two companies. Thank you Team Ambrose for 16 1/2 awesome years! After our town hall meeting Tuesday morning, taking breaks from cleaning out my office, there were a lot of hugs and tears. I love you guys and will miss you all. You are in good hands.
Here is the TriNet press release: prn.to/10xZsm9
Have a great day,
