Mind Over Machines doing $15M in revenue, bolstered by Seva Group acquisition

In late December, IT consulting firm Mind Over Machines announced its acquisition of The Seva Group, an IT consulting firm based in Brewers Hill in Baltimore city, as Technically Baltimore reported.

The acquisition makes Mind Over Machines one of the larger IT consulting firms in the Mid-Atlantic region, said Walt Rampata, the vice president of marketing communications with MoM. (Rampata started at Mind Over Machines on Jan. 2. Previously, he had been the chief marketing officer for the startup SocialToaster.)

It’s more than a boast. Now with nearly 70 employees thanks to the merger, three offices — Mind Over Machines’ offices in Owings Mills and Bethesda, plus its new offices inside the Natty Boh Building acquired through the merger — and roughly $15 million in revenue in 2012, Rampata said Mind Over Machines has positioned itself to take on IT work with larger companies and government agencies.

“We’re covering pretty much every metropolitan area through the Mid-Atlantic with this acquisition,” he said. “Going back, say, five, 10 years, we were playing more in the $5 million space [in revenue]. It’s a significant jump in where we’ve been able to get to. Some of that is attributed to the additional contracts and relationships we have through the acquisition of Seva Group.”

Of course, with any merger, there is a concern as to whether jobs will be cut, but Rampata said “there wasn’t any redundancy when it came to any positions that were in place.”

Mind Over Machines CEO Tom Loveland is a player in this city’s tech community. It was Loveland who helped organize the meeting of tech leaders from which came a blueprint for Baltimore city’s “digital roadmap.”
