SUWANEE, GA. – Dec. 1, 2016 – Prime Technological Services (Prime) today announced the strengthening of its executive team, naming Bryan Benfield, CPA, the company’s new vice president of finance and administration. Benfield will oversee all financial operations, information services and human resources company- wide, reporting directly to President and CEO Greg Chesnutt.

From finance and treasury to information systems and cost accounting, his background showcases the ability to lead with vision,” said Chesnutt. “We consider this a major strategic victory for Prime Technological Services and are eager to have Bryan help continue building the business in the year ahead.”
In his new role, Benfield will lead all finance and accounting activities, in addition to directing the information technology and human resources functions. Prior to joining Prime, Benfield spent 25 years of his career at Scientific Atlanta and Cisco, where he went on to lead financial activities supporting Cisco’s technical services support business. He also served as the vice president of financial planning and analysis for Aptean, an Atlanta-based enterprise application software company.
