US Park Place Technologies acquires UK Prestige Systems

US Park Place Technologies has purchased Prestige Systems, a UK-based IT infrastructure solutions provider located just outside Birmingham, England. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“I welcome the Prestige team to the Park Place family,” said Ed Kenty, Chairman and CEO of Park Place Technologies. “Prestige’s nearly three decades of exemplary IT data centre service will complement Park Place’s world-class support model as we expand and grow our client base together throughout the UK, Europe, and beyond.”
Acquiring Prestige Systems will allow Park Place to enhance their experienced, premier team of engineers to service data centers across the EMEA region. Park Place previously opened a European headquarters location in London in May of 2015.
Prestige’s Co-Founders, John and Elaine Dawson, James Coyle, and Mark Jones will be leaving Prestige Systems entirely to Park Place and joining other ventures in the UK. “Elaine, James, Mark, and I have full confidence in leaving Prestige in the capable hands of Park Place,” said John Dawson. “With Park Place, Prestige will be able to continue to grow to the next level and deliver the best service for IT data centres around the world.”
