Austin IT recruitment firm selects Portsmouth for East Coast office
Location will serve growing Boston area client base
Triple Crown Consulting, an Austin, Texas-based IT recruitment firm has opened its first East Coast office in Portsmouth.
The office opening is to the company's growing East Coast business. Triple Crown was founded in 2004 in Austin, Texas, and grew to the West Coast by first expanding to Phoenix, Arizona and then San Jose, California. Today, East Coast clients represent nearly 25 percent of its business, and the expansion to Portsmouth is part of the company’s plan to double its growth in 2018. The Portsmouth office will be led by Kyle Raymond.
Triple Crown chose Portsmouth as the hub for its Northeast operations to support its existing client base in the area, connect with new clients, offer East Coast-based tech projects to Triple Crown’s network of high-caliber tech professionals, and gain access to the talent graduating from local colleges and universities. Business in the Boston area has contributed to a significant part of the company’s recent revenue spike, and the new office enables Triple Crown to better support this market.
“The decision to expand Triple Crown’s physical presence to the East Coast was a logical next step to support our rapid business growth here and with our high-tech Fortune 500 clients,” said Dave Smith, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of Triple Crown. “We chose Portsmouth because it’s one of the fastest growing cities on the East Coast, and has a unique and vibrant atmosphere. The area is rich with diverse talent both for our internal team and senior software, hardware and big data IT professionals.”
Kyle Raymond relocated to Portsmouth from Triple Crown’s headquarters in Austin, where he served as a business unit manager. As site manager of Triple Crown’s Portsmouth office, Raymond will build a team to bring clients the same recruiting speed and efficiency as the company’s West Coast operations. Raymond, who has hired five new employees and plans to hire up to 12-14 total, is joined by recruiting team lead Ryan Rooney to develop the business.
“Kyle and Ryan have helped lead the Austin office to incredible success, and we know they will build a strong East Coast presence for Triple Crown,” said Sabatino Guerriero, Co-Founder of Triple Crown. “As one of our top performers for the past five years, Kyle knows what it takes to meet client needs in a timely and precise manner. Together with Ryan, this team is an energetic duo with a drive to create success for clients, contractors and the company.”
The Portsmouth office is located at 25 New Hampshire Avenue, Suite 205 in Portsmouth.
