Durham, NC (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
Bronto Software, the leading marketing platform for commerce, announced today it will more than double its presence on the American Tobacco Campus by adding 47,000 square feet to its office for a total of 80,000 square feet. Acquiring the former HTC space, the lease of the new location is in close proximity to the existing office and marks the largest investment to-date that Bronto has made and secures a long-term location for its world headquarters in downtown Durham.
“This will be Bronto’s 12th expansion since moving in as the one of the first tenants on the American Tobacco Campus more than ten years ago,” said Joe Colopy, chief executive officer and founder of Bronto. “The move reflects our focus on high growth and further supports our goal of remaining one of the preeminent places to work in the Triangle and being a center for software innovation.”
Bronto has outpaced its hiring projections for 2014 and now employs over 200 people in the Durham headquarters office. With many new engineering and sales positions currently open at Bronto, the new space will provide enough room for additional growth of the product and engineering teams as the company continues to expand its industry-leading commerce marketing platform.
Recent Bronto milestones driving the company’s growth include:
· Being ranked as the #1 email marketing provider to the Internet Retailer 1000;
· Record second quarter and a 35% year-over-year revenue increase;
· Launching the Bronto AppCenter, a collection point applications from leading e-commerce, personalization and analytics providers, all of which connect to the Bronto Marketing Platform and extend its value.
“We love contributing to the growth and energy of the American Tobacco office and location,” said Chaz Felix, chief operating officer and co-founder of Bronto. “Michael Goodman and his team have been great partners by helping us identify opportunities to expand our business for the past ten years and supporting the growth of our Durham headquarters.”
“Bronto’s success as a fast-growing technology company with outstanding products and a strong vision for its future makes the company a perfect match for the American Tobacco Campus,” said Michael Goodmon, vice president of real estate for Capitol Broadcasting Company, which owns the campus. “The company’s leadership and energetic culture have contributed hugely to establishing the American Tobacco Campus as the most attractive place to work not only in the Triangle but well beyond. We’re proud of Bronto, and eager to see how its example inspires younger companies in our community.”
