ST. LOUIS and DENVER – January 29, 2016 – World Wide Technology (WWT), a market leading technology integrator, announced today that it has opened new regional sales, engineering and development office in Denver, Colorado.
“WWT is pleased to extend its reach and establish deep roots in Denver,” said Jim Kavanaugh, chief executive officer of WWT. “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, engineering personnel and software developers from the company formerly known as Asynchrony Labs. Asynchrony, 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, 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 plans to hire up to 70 new employees in 2016. Over time, they 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 will be held today (Friday, January 29, 2016) 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 will be in attendance. The open house will feature office tours and technology demonstrations, including WWT’s leading-edge communication and collaboration tools, which extend the advanced capabilities of the company’s St. Louis-based headquarters to the Denver office.
Aside from its strong pool of IT talent, Denver is a regional hub for WWT’s established and growing customer base of large enterprise companies, public sector and federal government agencies as well as WWT premier partners, including Cisco Systems. The company is seeing impressive growth and opportunities in the region especially in the transportation and healthcare sectors. With its strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, WWT was also drawn to the fact that Denver houses a regional branch of the National Minority Supplier Development Council, of which it is been a longstanding member.
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.
