Ziff Davis Acquires IT Networking Site Toolbox.com

Vivek Shah continues to methodically build up his version of Ziff Davis as a tech vertical. No details on the price but Ziff Davis has acquired Scottsdale-based Toolbox.com and the IT pro networking site’s 2.3 million registered members from the Corporate Executive Board.

CEB paid nearly $58.9 million for Information Technology Toolbox, Inc. in 2007 when it had roughly 1 million registered users.

As of today, the site, founded in 1998, will be part of Ziff Davis B2B Focus, formed earlier this year when ZD picked up Focus Research; Focus provides lead gen for IT pros and research for enterprise buyers. This time last year Ziff Davis announced the acquisition of tech deals site LogicBuy and the launch of its ad targeting platform, the Ziff Davis BuyerBase.
