September 25, 2018

MELBOURNE, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 25, 2018--Contino, a leading global DevOps and cloud transformation consultancy, announced today that it has closed Series B funding.

The additional investment is to bolster Contino’s growth trajectory and maintain momentum as the company continues to rapidly expand.

Matt Farmer, Contino Co-Founder and CEO commented, “I’m very pleased to announce this latest round of investment and I’m excited for the next phase of growth for Contino. It’s a pleasure to welcome Top Tier to the company and to build on our successful partnership with Columbia Capital, who have been relentlessly supportive.”

Garth Timoll, Managing Director, Top Tier Capital Partners, explained why they have chosen to back this investment, “Contino clearly has very capable teams who are consistently delivering the genuine transformational change that enterprise organisations are struggling to achieve themselves. The company is charting an incredible growth trajectory in a vibrant market and we’re excited to support them in their future growth.”
