Outreach Corp., a tech company that is focused on helping companies maximize sales, has opened its first international office, in London, to serve its more than 200 European-based clients.
Outreach is a privately-held Seattle-based company with existing offices in San Francisco and Tampa, Florida. It offers a cloud-based sales-engagement platform to help clients bolster revenue by facilitating better interactions with sales prospects.
“There is a very real opportunity to help evolve he sales industry and customer experience in Europe and we see London as the best place to do so,” says Manny Medina, chief executive officer of Outreach. “Our customers in Europe have shared with us that they believe Outreach can provide European customer-facing teams with the tools they need to transform the sector and turn sales into a true engine for business growth.
Outreach currently employs more than 450 people and works with more than 4,000 customers around the globe. Its European clients include companies like Deliveroo, DocuSign and Signal AI.
The company says it plans to ramp up marketing and employment in the new London office fast and will be hiring across all customer-support functions, including sales, account management, customer support and professional service. To lead the new London office, Outreach has hired Tom Castley, a former Apptio executive who oversaw that company’s European account-management team.
Outreach has raised $239 million in investment capital to date and is now valued at $1.1 billion, making it a “unicorn” ― a term that refers to a company that exceeds a market valuation of $1 billion as determined by venture capital investment.
