UPSTACK Acquires Technology Advisory Firm MOC4 Consulting

Founder Daniel Mocny Joins Cloud and Internet Infrastructure Platform as Partner

UPSTACK, a profitable, fast-growing platform that transforms the architecture and sourcing experience for businesses seeking cloud and internet infrastructure solutions, announced that it has acquired MOC4 Consulting LLC, a technology advisory firm specializing in secure networking. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

UPSTACK’s acquisition of California-based MOC4 Consulting is part of the company’s strategy to accelerate the growth of its industry-transforming platform, which combines the industry’s leading internet infrastructure advisors with proprietary software and support resources.

The growth strategy is supported by a $50 million equity investment from Berkshire Partners, announced in April, which will enable the company to continue to scale its platform through technology expansion and partner acquisitions.

As part of the investment, MOC4 Consulting Founder Daniel Mocny will join UPSTACK as Partner and a true equity stakeholder. Mocny will continue to advise business customers that are sourcing data center, colocation, cloud, network connectivity and more through the UPSTACK platform.

“We’re excited to welcome MOC4 Consulting to the UPSTACK family,” said Christopher Trapp, CEO of UPSTACK. “In addition to his long experience delivering complex multi-vendor network solutions, Daniel’s competitive spirit and team-first mentality are sure to drive growth for the entire UPSTACK team.”

After competing as a Division I baseball player, Mocny landed in the tech industry at a telecom consulting company based in Huntington Beach, CA, where he spent eight years working his way up to senior account executive responsible for direct sales and sales management.

“In baseball, you fail more than you succeed, so sales was a natural match for me as it taught me how to battle through adversity,” he said, explaining that discipline and drive he learned as an athlete fueled his early success. It also prompted him to form MOC4 Consulting in 2014 to gain more control of his destiny and earning potential. MOC4 Consulting aligned with a master agency and quickly became a top performer year after year.

After seven years and more than 300 customers, Mocny began thinking about ways to scale MOC4’s capabilities. “I explored the conventional routes of hiring a support team, outsourcing to a third-party for back-office support, or combining resources with another agency in the space,” said Mocny. That’s when he heard about the opportunity to join UPSTACK.

“IT consultancies I trusted in the industry were taking the step forward with UPSTACK, and they validated my thoughts about this great opportunity,” he said. “When I met with CEO Chris Trapp, it was clear that UPSTACK had the resources, vision and long-term plan that I had been looking for, so the decision to join UPSTACK was easy and I’m excited about the future.”
