“Having known Phil well for some time, I’m confident his strong relationships, depth of knowledge, and leadership, combined with our own expanding capabilities, will propel EPIC to a leadership position within this important segment.”
The combined entity will also operate under the name Vanbridge – an EPIC Company.
