LesConcierges, Inc. Acquires 2 Places At 1 Time, Inc.
SAN FRANCISCO, November 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
LesConcierges, Inc., the world's leading provider of global concierge service and solutions, has acquired 2 Places At 1 Time, Inc., the concierge and errand services company in Atlanta, GA. Â The announcement was made by Linda Jenkinson, Chairman of LesConcierges, and Andrea Arena, CEO of 2 Places. Â Ms. Jenkinson said, "We have just completed an in-depth study about the employee experience in the workplace. Â Increasingly corporations are placing greater emphasis on creating a balanced work-life environment, while finding new ways to make employees engaged and productive. Â 2 Places At 1 Time is a perfect match for LesConcierges' current programs, adding an invaluable errand-service capability."
Ms. Arena explained: "24 hours in a day is never enough. Â Our errand services keep things manageable. Â Need someone to go to the house to wait for a plumber? Â How about picking up an important gift, dropping off the car at the shop, or helping out an employee while on maternity leave? Â Whatever your employees don't have the time or inclination to do-we do, and extremely well. Â This allows them to focus on the really important aspects of their life, which might be in the boardroom or in the bleachers at a Little League game. Â LesConcierges, with their global presence and innovative concierge technology platform, affords 2 Places the support to better service our clients and to offer a global service solution to our prospects."
Added Jenkinson, "All our clients will benefit from the newly combined network of trusted vendors that will enable us to provide service beyond expectations."
2 Places will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary, with staff and offices remaining intact. Â LesConcierges' headquarters is in San Francisco. Â They operate globally in Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. Â Jenkinson and Arena are excited to expose their employees to new opportunities. Â "What makes this acquisition so natural is that both Andrea and I strive to create a great place to work for our employees, which in turn reflects in the quality of our service to our clients," said Jenkinson.
