Markham, ON Canada Aug. 24, 2015 – Jonas Software, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Constellation Software Inc. (TSX: CSU), today announces the acquisition of MembersFirst Inc. MembersFirst has grown to become the private club industry’s leading digital agency – offering design, consulting, training, analytics, and member communication solutions to over 1,000 leisure clubs, business associations, gated communities, neighbourhood groups, and others.
The acquisition will retain MembersFirst as an independently operated brand – including its entire team of private club experts and award-winning designers, all of whom are dedicated to servicing clients across a wide range of membership management and back-office platforms.
The acquisition makes MembersFirst the first full-service digital agency under the Jonas umbrella, complimenting existing Jonas Club Software offerings, as well as creating new opportunities in areas not served by Jonas’ ClubHouse Online Website & Member Communication platform. MembersFirst CEO, Kevin Kopanon, said
Being welcomed into the Jonas family is clear validation that we’ve been doing the right things these past few transformative years. More importantly, it will bring improved integrations for our mutual clients and more opportunities to be an advocate for the club industry.
Jim Fedigan, President of Jonas Club Software commented, “We are committed to working with the brightest people this industry has to offer and to developing the solutions needed by clubs today, tomorrow, and in the many years to come. That’s what makes MembersFirst another great fit in the Jonas family of club companies.”
