Tiger Pistol, a social advertising platform, plans to open its first operation outside of its headquarters in Austin, Texas, bringing at least 25 new jobs to Cleveland, Ohio.
Tiger Pistol cited the Cleveland-area’s pool of technology and marketing expertise and affordability as some of the key driving factors for expansion into the market, local economic development officials said.
Tiger Pistol CEO, Paul Elliott said, “Having had the opportunity to build my own digital marketing agency here, as well as serve in a leadership capacity for other outstanding Cleveland-based marketing and technology organizations, I am well aware of the amazing assets we have access to here in Cleveland.
Bill Koehler, CEO of Team NEO said, “Northeast Ohio is home to great companies looking to deepen their digital marketing and technology capabilities in order to grow. Tiger Pistol’s decision to invest here is a strong statement about the depth and breadth of the digital technology capabilities in this market. We expect their success to offer further encouragement to other digital technology companies exploring a significant investment in Northeast Ohio.”
The company considered other locations throughout the Midwest, but a team comprising the city of Cleveland, Project Management Consultants, JobsOhio and Team NEO collaborated to ensure Tiger Pistol would choose Cleveland for its expansion.
“The City of Cleveland welcomes Tiger Pistol’s decision to invest and grow in Cleveland,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “This investment reflects the continued growth of Cleveland’s technology sector and we look forward to working with them on their expansion.”
