California- based Nexus is a privately-owned provider of advanced IT solutions serving enterprises, mid-sized business and public sector clients, with industry specializations in education, retail, hospitality and healthcare.
This expansion will increase Dimension Data’s operations by 40 percent in the US. Nexus has 19 offices in California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, Washington, Texas, Georgia, Florida and North Carolina.
“The acquisition of Nexus is a significant strategic step in enhancing the Group’s geographic coverage and depth of skills and capabilities to support our clients. For over three decades, Dimension Data has been building expertise and experience in ICT solutions and services that deliver real business value to our clients. Nexus increases our ability to support both our US-based and global clients with significant West Coast presence,” said Brett Dawson, CEO of Dimension Data plc.
Mark Slaga, CEO of Dimension Data Americas, said: “Together, the assets of both companies position Dimension Data as one of the leaders in the provision of services and solutions in the ICT sector across the US. Nexus brings a rich set of services and solutions to the Group, particularly in the data center, collaboration, enterprise networks, security and cloud spaces. In addition, there’s minimal overlap of geographies and clients, which strengthens Dimension Data’s presence across the Americas.”
Nexus CEO Deron Pearson said: “This acquisition is a fantastic milestone in the history of the company and a tremendous endorsement of our employees, as well as the excellent solutions and services that Nexus provides. I am very excited about the opportunity for our clients to tap into Dimension Data’s solutions and services, particularly the opportunity for us to extend new cloud capabilities, IT outsourcing and additional managed services on a global basis.”
Pearson will report to Slaga and continue to lead the Nexus business. Nexus President and COO Waheed Choudhry will continue to run Nexus’s day-to-day operations, reporting to Pearson.
