Western Blue and NWN Corporation Join Forces

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - Two information technology powerhouses have joined forces: Sacramento-based Western Blue is now a member of the NWN Corporation family. Western Blue focuses on the public sector, and holds many California statewide contracts. In addition to Sacramento, it has offices in Fresno and Salt Lake City, Utah. Western Blue provides desktop to data center solutions from HP, Microsoft, Intel and McAfee. NWN also has deep expertise in HP and Microsoft technologies as well as extensive partnerships with Cisco, and EMC.

Both Western Blue and NWN have continued to grow through the difficult economy. Western Blue's dominance in California complements NWN's strength throughout the East Coast and Texas. With the addition of Western Blue, NWN will have 11 offices and more than 400 employees. At a quarter of a billion in revenue, NWN is one of largest and most capable, privately-held IT services companies in the nation.

Terry Joslin, President of Western Blue, now an NWN Company, says, "Integrating Western Blue with NWN will make us both even stronger. We will be able to bring new services to our clients and to give our employees even more opportunities to grow and develop."

NWN President and CEO, Mont Phelps, says, "Western Blue is an excellent complement to NWN.
