Rochester, NY (August 2, 2022) — Calero, a leader in the high-growth Technology Expense Management (TEM) software space, announced today that it has acquired Network Control, a boutique Telecom Expense Management company providing high-touch telecom expense management and managed mobility software and services to customers for the past 22 years.

"We are very excited to be acquiring Network Control and look forward to Mark and the Network Control employees joining the Calero team,” said Scott Gilbert, CEO of Calero. “Combined with the investments in our technology and platform, this acquisition provides Calero with the perfect springboard from which to accelerate our growth in the middle-market, one of our 2022 strategic initiatives,” continued Gilbert.

Hearn added, “As I evaluated the many options available to me, my focus was on finding a partner that would allow me to continue to provide outstanding service to my customers, take care of my wonderful employees, and accelerate the growth trajectory I have spent 11 years building. I am convinced that Calero is the only firm capable of checking all three of these boxes and I am delighted to continue this journey with Scott and the Calero team.”
