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. The announcement was made by Linda Jenkinson, Chairman of LesConcierges, and Andrea Arena, CEO of 2 Places. Ms. Jenkinson said, "We have just completed an in-depth study about the employee experience in the workplace. Increasingly corporations are placing greater emphasis on creating a balanced work-life environment, while finding new ways to make employees engaged and productive. 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. Our errand services keep things manageable. Need someone to go to the house to wait for a plumber? How about picking up an important gift, dropping off the car at the shop, or helping out an employee while on maternity leave? Whatever your employees don't have the time or inclination to do-we do, and extremely well. 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. 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. LesConcierges' headquarters is in San Francisco. They operate globally in Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. Jenkinson and Arena are excited to expose their employees to new opportunities. "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.
