Where We’ve Been...

In 1970, Annese & Associates, Inc. is founded by Frank J. Annese in Herkimer, NY as a communications technology sales company. In 2009, company ownership transitions to Frank's four daughters and Ray Apy is appointed President & CEO. The company moves its headquarters to Clifton Park, NY, and fully evolves from a product-led VAR into a services-led solution integrator.

Where We’re Headed

Due to our impressive 47 years of expertise, relationships, and innovation in the IT space, and strong presence in New York and the Northeast, Annese has been acquired by ConvergeOne. Ray Apy will continue to lead Annese as Senior Vice President. We are excited to combine our collective strengths and continue serving our valued customers as Annese, a ConvergeOne Company.
