Last year we announced Box was expanding across the pond with a new European presence, and today we’re excited to share that our new London office is officially the home to the Box International Headquarters. And with the opening of a new headquarters, what better way to celebrate than with a visit from HRH The Duke of York and local Box customers?
We have more than 80 employees already on the team in Europe and plan to grow to more than 100 in 2014 across our London, Paris, and Munich offices. Currently, we also serve other regions like the Nordics, Netherlands, Spain, and Italy from the London HQ.
Since opening a London office in June 2012, we’ve more than doubled user growth outside of the US and today announced the deployment of 2,500 seats with the London Borough of Hounslow.
To add Hounslow as a customer, Box worked with newly-signed partner, Methods, one of the UK’s most influential and successful technology consultancies and professional services firms. Box will now be a part of Method’s portfolio of technology solutions, kicking off our partnership with the Hounslow deployment, which was acquired via the UK government’s G-Cloud framework.
The Box Team is settling into our new London home nicely, and our diverse European team makes every day at work plenty of fun!
