Showpad Opens New Office In Chicago’s Loop Following Record Growth
High-growth sales enablement company opens new office to support employee growth and company expansion
CHICAGO, Dec. 12, 2018 – Showpad, the leading sales enablement platform for modern sellers, has opened its new office at 1 N. State Street in Chicago. Since moving its US headquarters to Chicago, Showpad has expanded rapidly, scaling its headcount from 15 in late 2017 to 120 today, with plans to hire 50 more employees over the next year. The new office will house the company as it continues to expand in the city and serve as the new location for Showpad’s North American headquarters.
“The immense growth that we’ve been able to achieve in the past year is not only impressive but a testament to both the caliber of talent we’ve been able to attract and the strength of the Chicago tech community,” said Jason Holmes, President and COO of Showpad. “We’re excited about our new space and looking forward to further investing in Chicago and growing our presence here.”
The new 20-thousand square foot space will support Showpad’s growing employee headcount with an open-concept floor plan that fosters innovation and collaboration, supported by state-of-the-art technology. As its North American headquarters, the office will be the foundation for Showpad’s North American operations, enabling the company to capitalize on the talent in Chicago and invest in the local technology community.
Showpad has experienced record-breaking growth over the last year, starting with a $25 million Series C funding round from Insight Venture Partners in January and followed by the acquisitions of Chicago-based LearnCore in June and UK-based Voicefox in November.
