Greetings from The Big Apple! This week marks the one-year anniversary of the opening of our New York office. It’s hard to believe a full year has passed! Some wonder, with so many New Yorkers moving south for warmer weather and a lower cost of living, why we are here?
When we set up an office in London, we confirmed the great value in having a physical presence in our major markets. Having salespeople on the ground to stop by a prospect’s office or grab coffee throughout the sales process definitely helps us build those connections with potential customers, generate new business and support our clients. And our partner network and other folks in the commerce ecosystem have a significant presence in these major metro areas as well, so by being local, hosting events and providing lunch and learns, we’re able to help keep Bronto top of mind.
Having a local office has also allowed us to open up the hiring pool to a much larger network of talent with experience in tech, commerce, marketing, etc. And we’ve assembled quite a stellar team so far!
