DENVER -- St. Louis-based World Wide Technology, a leading technology integrator, announced it has opened a new regional sales, engineering and development office in Denver.
“WWT is pleased to extend its reach and establish deep roots in Denver,” said Jim Kavanaugh, company CEO. “The area’s strong concentration of technology resources and IT professionals make Denver a natural fit for WWT and will allow us to strengthen our relationships with current customers and partners, expand our services to new clients and secure local talent.”
The Denver location will house WWT field sales and engineering personnel and the newest office of World Wide Technology Asynchrony Labs (Asynchrony Labs). Asynchrony Labs, acquired by WWT in 2015, is a recognized leader in Agile software development, specializing in mobile computing, systems and sensor integration, enterprise architecture and agile business transformation.
“Our rapid growth has been fueled by our ability to deliver innovative solutions all the way from idea to outcome,” said Bob Elfanbaum, general manager with Asynchrony Labs. “Denver’s high-density technology workforce and strong agile development community will allow us to expand quickly and meet the needs of our customers as we double the size of our business in the next two years.”
To respond to increasing market demands for leading-edge technology, WWT and Asynchrony Labs plan to hire up to 70 new employees in 2016. Over time, the companies plan to grow the team to include 200 new software developers and 50 field sales representatives in the Denver market.
An open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Jan. 29 to welcome employees, partners and customers to the new space. Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, Suma Nallapati, Secretary of Technology and Chief Information Officer for the State of Colorado, and Stan Sena, president and CEO of the Mountain Plains Minority Supplier Development Council, were among those attending the event.
The opening of the new Denver office builds on WWT’s continued momentum following a year of strategic growth that included the company’s acquisition of Asynchrony Labs, groundbreaking on WWT’s new St. Louis-based $95M campus and headquarters, and addition of 400,000 square feet to its Edwardsville, IL logistics center.
