Windstream sells off its professional services unit to Lieberman Technologies

Windstream (Nasdaq: WIN) is shedding its professional website consultation arm to Lieberman Technologies for an undisclosed amount.

The unit, which Windstream gained through its acquisition of Kentucky Data Link and Norlight via its parent Q-Comm, is something the ILEC decided to exit.

As part of the deal, Pat Heck, the former general manager of Norlight, will become director of development for Lieberman Technologies.

Stewart Klipsch, managing partner at Lieberman, said the acquisition will help the company expand its reach into website development and hosting. The new unit will complement Lieberman's well established expertise in hardware and support, networking expertise and software development.
