Darrell Freeman, CEO Zycron

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Zycron, Inc. today announced that it has acquired Computer Professionals Inc., a Nashville information technology staffing and recruiting agency.

The acquisition increases Zycron’s team by 10 percent and adds several customers to its client base.

“The acquisition of CPI is a significant step in Zycron’s growth strategy and the first of many key acquisitions that will expand our presence domestically and internationally,” Zycron Founder and Executive Chairman Darrell Freeman said.

Zycron ended the 2012 fiscal year at a record $40.5 million in revenue and 345 employees. The CPI acquisition adds 36 professionals to the Zycron team, many of whom are working on-site at Nashville-based health care companies.

“CPI’s footprint in the health care sector boosts Zycron’s established practice of providing the highest quality of IT professionals in the growing health care market,” said Stephanie Woodard, chief operations officer at Zycron. “We are excited to retain a team of seasoned, relationship-driven professionals with this transaction. We anticipate an immediate impact in new opportunities and growth, while continuing to provide high levels of performance.”

This acquisition is Zycron’s second major expansion this year. In May, Zycron Europe was established in London.

“Our clients are global companies who look for global delivery solutions,” Freeman said. Zycron Europe is an expansion of Zycron’s international presence, and its domestic offices are located in Nashville (headquarters), Memphis, Chattanooga, Dallas and Denver.
