BALTIMORE, MD — March 31, 2015 — Chesapeake Corporate Advisors (CCA) is pleased to announce that it has served as exclusive financial advisor to Trusant Technologies, LLC (www.trusant.com), in the successful merger with The Kenjya Group, Inc. (www.kenjya.com). The newly formed entity, The Kenjya-Trusant Group, LLC, will continue to deliver cyber protection, information technology, engineering, construction management and acquisition support services with a core focus on national security issues. Charlie Maskell, CCA’s Managing Director and Mike Zuidema, Director, directed the engagement.
Trusant owner, Vince Marucci, Jr. described the merger itself as a smooth process. “Any business owner that has been through a merger knows how stressful that can be. Fortunately, though, Charlie was able to present ideas and options that both parties immediately found logical, fair, and understandable. What I had anticipated as potentially being the ‘hard part’ of the negotiations actually became the ‘easy part’ due to Charlie and Mike’s experience, and their level-handed approach with all parties. I can’t say enough good things about how CCA made this merger a positive start to a great opportunity for all of us!”
Both founded in 2002, Kenjya and Trusant have become go-to providers of key services to the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Intelligence Community, and other government and commercial clients.

Meanwhile, Trusant delivered engineering, information technology and construction management services, specializing in the design and construction of advanced technology systems and mission-critical facilities.
“It was terrific to work with the management teams of both companies to create the very exciting combined entity, The Kenjya-Trusant Group, LLC,” said Mike Zuidema of CCA. “Both teams were intensely focused on ensuring increased value for customers and employees as they engineered themerger. The Kenjya-Trusant Group will be very successful,” he added.
