Comtrade Software opened its new global headquarters, choosing Boston over Silicon Valley. Office opening reception with ribbon cutting ceremony was held on September 6, 2016 at the new office on 109 State Street with customers, business partners, board members and with Boston’s most influential and respected representatives, including Congressman Joe Kennedy, John Barros, Chief Execute for Economic development and Lauren E. Jones, Director of Business Strategy from Mayor’s office, Kevin Powers, Program Director, MS in Cybersecurity policy & Governance at Boston College, Andy Cohen, VP of Strategic Development at Citrix and Mark Culliton, CEO of College Bound Dorchester and many more.
Environment, strong partner network, innovative culture and energizing vibe is the perfect place to grow Comtrade Software’s US presence. Combining the city’s history, pride and cultural strength with Comtrade Software values makes the move a perfect match. Referencing President’s blog at Comtrade Software, Massachusetts has long been known for being an innovation economy.
The decision to join the hotbed of talent was welcomed and accepted by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, who said “We are thrilled that Comtrade Software has chosen Boston as the home for their new global headquarters.”
The story created huge news waves and was recognized by the US and Boston’s largest media – forefront of American journalism and Pulitzer Prize winner, newspaper The Boston Globe and the two largest radio stations, CBS News Radio Boston and NPR Boston.
As Simon Taylor, president at Comtrade Software, told WBZAM (WBZ): CBS News Radio Boston: “I want to create hives in Boston, I want to effectively develop our brain trust with the organization right here in the central Boston office.” The news expanded also to the WBUR (NPR) Boston, one of the largest radio stations that featured Simon’s comment on Morning News Broadcast.
The offices not only present a space for accelerated growth strategy, but also a space to connect and thrive – either during a meeting or during a friendly foosball match.
