“The acquisition – and the continuation of the strong Eberle Vivian brand as an operating unit within Helmsman – is already delivering positive results,” said HMS President and Chief Executive Officer David Dwortz. “It has helped us expand relationships with several national Helmsman customers into the Pacific Northwest, and to bring national solutions to select Eberle customers based in Washington state. Lisa Eberle, President of Eberle Vivian, and her staff of incredibly talented and experienced professionals, are a tremendous addition to Helmsman.”
