IAG is pleased to announce the acquisition of its client J.T. Smith & Associates, Inc. on May 10, 2018. Based Urbana, IL, the company provides custom software to support businesses and distributors attending annual trade shows. Nearing retirement at 70 years of age seller wanted someone to carry on his legacy, and transition into part time while helping the buyer for a year and then travel. The business was sold to Vipin Verma who wanted to purchase a software company near Chicago. Buyer had no experience with trade show software automation systems. After he was introduced to this hybrid sector and got to loving the excitement of the shows and unique aspects of the software company, he purchased!
