Seelin Naidoo, Chief Executive Officer of Intelliteach, said, “for over 20 years Intelliteach has served as a trusted, long-term partner for its clients, helping law and accounting firms solve their complex IT and financial services challenges. With BV’s assistance we intend to build upon Intelliteach’s strong foundation to continue to enhance our current service offerings while developing additional services that will deliver enhanced value to our customers and employees. The market for our outsourced technology and business processes is still vastly underpenetrated, so we are excited to begin our next chapter with BV.”
Matt Kinsey, Managing Director of BV, said, “Intelliteach has positioned itself as a trusted adviser through its technology enabled service offerings. Seelin and his team have built a business that delivers unique value to its customers, and we’re thrilled to be backing them in the recapitalization of the business. We’re looking forward to supporting the team’s growth strategy in any way we can, and believe our deep industry experience base and network can be applied to help Intelliteach continue to scale organically as well as through acquisitions.”

Mr. Bryant has a long track record of success in the legal outsourcing market and will provide strategic guidance and support with various growth initiatives.
