BURLINGTON, MA and PROVIDENCE, RI (PRWEB) August 3, 2005
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 HousecallsÂ Rhode Island Operations. This acquisition follows Geek HousecallsÂ 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 HousecallsÂ new, larger office at One Richmond Square located on the Seekonk River. ÂThis is a great location for us,Â reported Andy, ÂitÂs 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,Â he jokes, Âwith easy access to the river, in a pinch we could always swim to our East Bay customers when the traffic on 195 becomes unbearable!Â
ÂWeÂre excited that Jeff is aboard,Â said Dave Ehlke, ÂWith his strong technical experience and proven leadership, heÂll really energize our Providence office and help spread the word about Geek Housecalls and Geek Officecalls to all the corners of Rhode Island.Â Adding, ÂitÂs important to us that Rhode Islanders understand weÂre a local company with local roots and interests and not some big national chain store.Â
ÂIÂm thrilled to have the opportunity to help grow Geek Housecalls and Geek Officecalls in Rhode Island, and equally excited to offer Downcity SystemsÂ customers the expanded flexibility and responsiveness of Geek HousecallsÂ famous same-day or 24-hour service response,Â says Jeff. ÂAlso, 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.Â
Jeff Cavanaugh is a Rhode Island Ânative geekÂ who grew up in Pawtucket, is a graduate of Shea High School, and holds the very geeky degree of ÂBS in Physics and Applied MathÂ from the University of Rhode Island. He currently calls the East Side of Providence home.
