Downcity Systems joins the Geek Housecalls family, adopting the light-hearted Geek Housecalls image while offering serious relief to frustrated home and small business computer users in Rhode Island.

Geek Housecalls, Inc. today announced it has acquired Downcity Systems of Providence in response to increasing demand for computer help in Rhode Island. As part of the acquisition, Geek Housecalls named Jeffrey Cavanaugh, the founder of Downcity Systems, as the General Manager of Geek Housecalls’ Rhode Island Operations. This acquisition follows Geek Housecalls’ April release at the Rhode Island Business Expo announcing the formation of Geek Officecalls to focus on the unique requirements of small business customers.

Recently, Jeff was on-hand with Geek Housecalls co-founders Andy Trask and Dave Ehlke for the opening of Geek Housecalls’ new, larger office at One Richmond Square located on the Seekonk River. “This is a great location for us,” reported Andy, “it’s close to the heart of the city but still gives us quick access to our customers in suburban Rhode Island and South Coast Massachusetts communities. Besides,” he jokes, “with easy access to the river, in a pinch we could always swim to our East Bay customers when the traffic on 195 becomes unbearable!”

“We’re excited that Jeff is aboard,” said Dave Ehlke, “With his strong technical experience and proven leadership, he’ll really energize our Providence office and help spread the word about Geek Housecalls and Geek Officecalls to all the corners of Rhode Island.” Adding, “it’s important to us that Rhode Islanders understand we’re a local company with local roots and interests and not some big national chain store.”

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to help grow Geek Housecalls and Geek Officecalls in Rhode Island, and equally excited to offer Downcity Systems’ customers the expanded flexibility and responsiveness of Geek Housecalls’ famous same-day or 24-hour service response,” says Jeff. “Also, having access to the knowledge and experience of the 50+ geeks on the Geek Housecalls staff will certainly help me bring the level of professional computer service that has been the hallmark of Geek Housecalls, into the homes and small businesses of my Rhode Island neighbors.”

Jeff Cavanaugh is a Rhode Island “native geek” who grew up in Pawtucket, is a graduate of Shea High School, and holds the very geeky degree of “BS in Physics and Applied Math” from the University of Rhode Island. He currently calls the East Side of Providence home.
