Britain-Based BlueOptima Locates U.S. Headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona
According to the Arizona Commerce Authority, the company will establish local support functions as needed, with the plan to grow from eight employees in the Arizona office to more than 20 in the coming months, and double its workforce year to year.
“After comparing 50 cities in the US, Phoenix clearly stood out as the number one choice for fast growing tech companies,” said Julian Schultz, BlueOptima’s COO. “We are looking forward to establishing our U.S. headquarters here and helping clients bring transparency into managing their software engineering teams.”
“BlueOptima conducts business all over the world, and chose Arizona for its American headquarters, a testament to our state’s global reputation as a premier destination for tech innovators,” said Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. “We thank the company for their investment in Arizona, and look forward to their contributions to the state’s growing high-tech industry.”
The company, which is based in London, has offices in New York, Guadalajara, Mexico, and Bengaluru and Gurugram, India. Phoenix will become BlueOptima’s main office in the U.S. The foreign direct investment in Phoenix is a statement of the company’s commitment to North American growth.
“With its cutting-edge technologies that serve businesses in a range of industries, BlueOptima is a valuable asset to Arizona’s thriving technology sector,” said Sandra Watson, President & CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “We’re proud the company found in our state an environment that encourages innovation and an abundance of skilled talent to grow its operation. We welcome BlueOptima to Arizona and look forward to their future growth and success!”
“BlueOptima’s decision to establish a new U.S. headquarters in Greater Phoenix further solidifies our region’s position as a place where tech companies can thrive and scale operations seamlessly, while recruiting personnel to fulfill a variety of roles,” says Chris Camacho, president & CEO at the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “We look forward to supporting their growth and welcome them to our region and robust technology ecosystem.”
