DocsCorp relocates U.S. HQ to Pittsburgh to service growing East Coast base
DocsCorp has relocated its U.S. headquarters to Pittsburgh with the opening of a new, larger office, ten years after establishing itself in North America, in Oregon. The U.S. office move shortly follows DocsCorp’s relocation to bigger premises in London, as it expands and looks to new markets.
The new Pittsburgh office is more ideally located to service DocsCorp’s East Coast customer base, which it says has grown significantly over the past two years. DocsCorp is preparing to hire more Pittsburgh personnel in the coming months.
Leading the Pittsburgh team is vice President of DocsCorp Americas, Matt Stalder, who has been spearheading the US sales effort for over 10 years. Stalder said, “The DocsCorp Pittsburgh office will provide our Americas team with a place to meet for regional strategic and tactical meetings throughout the year, effectively bringing a geographically diversified group together.”
The Portland west coast team falls under Pittsburgh’s leadership, though that office is also in an expansion phase seeking larger facilities.
The office move only shortly follows DocsCorp’s announcement that it has relocated its London team to new, larger premises after more than tripling its team.
The new office, located on Great Tower Street, now occupies more than double the space of DocsCorp’s previous building near London Waterloo Station.
The London team, headed by vice president of DocsCorp EMEA, has just put an advert out for three more sales staff and has found growing interest from sectors such as oil and gas and pharmaceuticals.
Sarah Smithies, who joined DocsCorp at the start of the year as senior sales account manager, told Legal IT Insider: “We get a lot of enquiries from oil and gas and pharmaceutical companies and we are really starting to look outside for sales staff due to demand.
“We doubled the size of our support team over last 12 months – partly because of the sheer volume of work but also the demand from other markets.”
Smithies says DocsCorp is finding success around the General Data Protection Regulation (better known as GDPR) with contentCrawler, which makes each file searchable and reduces the risk of hidden data.
The new London premises will accommodate planned expansion and growth in future years as DocsCorp will be looking to add an account manager, senior account manager, and business development representative in early 2017.
In the U.S. DocsCorp is looking to fill two roles, one for an application support specialist in Portland, and the other for a customer service associate based in Pittsburgh.
