Staines’ Attenda sold to void dreamers Ensono

zen_as_a_frogThe Staines-based managed service provider Attenda has been sold to Ensono.

The news will be a great relief to Attenda which has been on the market longer than a haunted house whose occupants have all died in mysterious circumstances. It was put up for sale by its owner Darwin Private Equity last year, but no one was interested because of its poor results.

Ensono is based in Chicago and is an infrastructure-based MSP. It is better known as Acxiom IT but it changed its name in January to Enso which apparently is a Zen term meaning enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and mu (the void). The work site said that this workd is also fused with the Italian one for “in dreams”. Unfortunately in Italian it is singular which means that we are only talking about “one dream” rather than dreams. Still at least it has focus. So basically after their rebranding they were “enlightened by a dream” which was probably not the one about a Mars bar and Eva Green I keep having.

Mark Fowle, Attenda’s CEO and co-founder, will join the board of dreamers and Ensono’s CEO, Jeff VonDeylen, will remain in charge of the combined company
