Readiness Associates, a Portland-based international consulting firm that acts as a full-service business continuity and emergency preparedness partner, has announced the acquisition of Continuity Dynamics, Inc. of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
Founded in 2006, Continuity Dynamics has attained a leadership position with a focus on business continuity, disaster recovery, supply chain management, cybersecurity, risk, compliance, governance, public-private sector and the SMB (small medium business) market. The company also provided pandemic planning internationally in The Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong and other countries. They maintain a strong client base touching four continents.
With a current focus on supporting the healthcare industry during the COVID-19 event, both firms are now able to deliver end-to-end solutions that are supported by ISO 22301 Standards, HIPAA, OSHA and others. They are also focused on the CMS Standards to support The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a part of the Department of Health and Human Services.
“Continuity Dynamics has been a longtime collaborator of ours and shares the same philosophy of excellence in customer service in this critical business sector,” said Michael Boardman, CEO and founder of Readiness Associates. “Their team of experienced risk-management specialists and suite of enterprise and SMB solutions fit perfectly into the Readiness Associates domain.”
John Panchery, senior vice president of Client Services for Continuity Dynamics, agreed with that assessment.
“Readiness Associates will take Continuity Dynamics solutions to some of the largest and most important healthcare groups in the nation,” Panchery said. “Beyond healthcare, there will be a focus on pharma, finance, insurance, HR and other industries and to help ensure that the supply chains for all companies are not as severely impacted as seen in today’s times. Companies must remain viable to serve their communities.”
