Dimension Data acquires Nexus

Zafirah Salim | April 24, 2014
USD$6 billion company Dimension Data announced its recent acquisition of Nexus, without disclosing the deal’s size.

Dimension Data has acquired IT solutions provider Nexus for an undisclosed amount, the IT services company announced today.

According to its media statement, the acquisition of Nexus expands Dimension Data’s operations in the United States by 40 per cent and significantly increases the company’s presence in the West, Southwest and Southeast regions of the country.

Consequently, clients will now have access to a deeper network of experts and a broader portfolio of solutions. 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,” said Brett Dawson, CEO of Dimension Data. “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 West Coast presence.”

“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,” said Mark Slaga, CEO of Dimension Data Americas. “Nexus brings a rich set of services and solutions to the Group, particularly in the data centre, 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.”

After the acquisition, Nexus CEO, Deron Pearson, will report to Slaga and continue to lead the Nexus business, Dimension Data said in its statement. Additionally, Nexus President and COO, Waheed Choudhry, will continue to run Nexus’ day-to-day operations, reporting to Pearson.
