US Software Company Opens European Headquarters in Edinburgh
A US-based global software firm has opened its European headquarters in Edinburgh as it looks to expand its European presence.
Calero Software’s new Edinburgh office was officially opened by Ivan McKee MSP, Scottish Government Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation, and will see the majority of its European-based software development, operations and sales resources housed at the site.
Specialising in Communications and Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM), the company provides solutions designed to turn communication data into actionable insight through the simplification of voice, mobile and other communications services and assets.
The move follows Calero’s 2018 acquisition of Edinburgh software business Veropath. The company confirmed it will increase investment in R&D, operations and sales in Edinburgh to support its “rapidly growing global client base”, and has recruited Andrew Wyse as managing director EMEA to lead its European expansion.
Commenting on the opening, McKee said: “It’s an honour to welcome Calero’s European headquarters to Edinburgh. The decision by Calero to lead its European operations from here is testament to Edinburgh, and Scotland, that is fast becoming known worldwide for its vibrant technology scene.
“The Scottish Government has published an ambitious plan to boost international exports and I’m delighted that, in Calero, we have added another important exporter to our economy; an encouraging marker for economic development in Scotland.”
Based at Torphichen Street in Edinburgh’s west end, the high-tech, modern office space also has the capacity to expand its team size by 40%. The office space itself has been specifically designed to include a dedicated Kanban space and collaborative breakout areas to help foster creative, open-minded analysis and development, Calero said.
Jo Pajer, president and CEO of Calero, commented: “Our new European headquarters is a defining moment in Calero’s ambitious growth strategy for, and investment in, Europe. We have chosen Edinburgh as the location for our headquarters to tap into Scotland’s deep technology talent pool to add to our existing dynamic team.
“Topping off another year of record growth in 2018, we could not be more excited about the Edinburgh headquarters.”
