Following strong UK market adoption with approximately 100 customers already on board, Sisense announces new London HQ office, following $80 million investment
LONDON, Sept. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sisense, disrupting the BI market by simplifying business analytics for complex data, today announced that it has expanded its global footprint with the opening of a new office in London to accelerate its European growth. Sisense recently completed an $80 million raise with part of those funds slated to expand the company's global presence.
The move follows significant client growth in the UK and globally, driven by increased demand for full-stack analytics solutions and a growing need for agile data-driven insights. Sisense is building on a sizeable European customer footprint with local UK clients such as Flight Centre, SDL, Motorola UK, and Rolls Royce Digital.
"Sisense is fortunate to count so many top UK brands among its clients and we continue to see incredible growth given the accelerating European knowledge economy," said Amir Orad, Sisense Chief Executive Officer. "There is massive adoption of Sisense globally, as the growing volume and complexity of data drives demand for analytics, and business agility. Once we had secured a strong leader for our UK operations, and our recent round of funding, we knew that London would lead our work with the European enterprises so we could further achieve local customers' success."
Richard Lack, a London-based, 21-year technology industry veteran, has joined the company as General Manager leading the London office. Lack has held sales leadership positions at several top, enterprise-focused, software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies including Google's DoubleClick, SalesForce's ExactTarget, and SAP's Gigya. For these positions and others, Lack was part of the founding European team, and he guided those companies through successful IPOs or acquisitions.
"I am proud to be joining Sisense, helping another innovative, disruptive leader in the cloud technology space aggressively expand in the region," said Lack. "Given the incredible growth for Sisense and its recent funding, it seems like a very fortuitous time for the company to expand its physical presence here. Great clients and great technology will help us bring together great people, to make this office a major source of growth and success."
With about 450 employees, Sisense will be adding 50 more customer-facing employees in the UK in the coming quarters, with most roles in Customer Support, Sales, and Marketing. Sisense is headquartered in New York, and has offices in Tel Aviv, Kiev, Tokyo and Arizona.
