History[edit]

DLT Solutions was founded in 1991 by Thomas Marrelli.[2][3] DLT Solutions is a value-added reseller of software and hardware and professional services provider in Herndon, Virginia.[4] In July 2004, Rick Marcotte was appointed DLT's president and CEO after having been on its board of directors for a year.[5] After Marrelli died in 2002, his heirs in 2005 sold the company to DLT President and Chief Executive Officer Rick Marcotte and Chief Financial Officer Craig Adler.[2] During the acquisition, SunTrust Banks handled the financing, while BB&T Capital Markets and Windsor Group advised DLT Solutions.[2] Marcotte had worked with the founder, Thomas Marrelli, in the mid-1990s when Marrelli led Exide Electronics' federal systems branch and Marcotte was the new business development director.[6] In 2005, the company resold products from Oracle Corporation, Autodesk, Quest Solutions, Red Hat and Adobe Systems.[2]

The company mostly works with groups in the public sector such as the United States Department of Defense and local and state administrations.[7] In 2013, after federal spending shrunk, DLT's work with local and state governments increased more than with the federal government. DLT scored a contract with Colorado to install Oracle software for its health insurance marketplace.[8] In 2014, DLT's main vendors were Autodesk, Dell Software, Red Hat, Oracle Corporation, and Symantec, which DLT used for 80% of its enterprises.[9]

Millstein & Co. acquisition[edit]

On January 30, 2015,[10] DLT Solutions announced that private equity firm Millstein & Co. had bought it.[11] Prior to Millstein's purchase, MTZP Capital Group had been the majority owner.[11] In the acquisition agreement, Millstein & Co. operating partner Alan Marc Smith became the President and CEO of DLT Solutions, taking over from Rick Marcotte, who had been DLT Solutions President and CEO for over a decade. After the acquisition, Marcotte became DLT Solutions' board's vice chairman and consultant.[11] In three two years prior to the Milstein acquisition, DLT Solutions had revenue of roughly $800 million in 2012, $857 million in 2013 and over $900 million in 2014.[12][11]

In the several months before the acquisition, DLT scored multimillion-dollar deals with the Social Security Administration, the United States Department of the Navy, NASA SEWP, the United States Department of Defense, and Internet2.[13] In 2015, the company had 230 employees in the Washington metropolitan area.[14]

Products[edit]

In April 2014, DLT released CODEvolved, a platform-as-a-service product that integrates Red Hat's OpenShift, Amazon Web Services, and DLT's domain knowledge. The technology is intended to help DLT customers quickly learn cloud computing products.[15] In June 2014, DLT released DLT Cloud Navigator, a basket of tools that helps public sector entities implement cloud technology. Cloud Navigator contains products from Oracle Corporation, Red Hat, and Amazon.com.[16]
