Outreach Extends European Presence with Office in Prague Tech Hotspot
Six months after opening its first international office in London, the Seattle-headquartered sales engagement unicorn extends its influence in Europe with a new engineering office
PRAGUE, July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Outreach, the number one sales engagement platform, today announced the opening of a new product development centre in Prague, Czech Republic, which further extends its footprint in Europe. From its new office in one of Europe's five growing tech hubs, Outreach will continue to modernise the European sales industry. The company is already the largest sales engagement company in Europe. The opening of the Prague office follows closely on Outreach closing a $50 million funding round and appointing Melissa Fisher as Chief Financial Officer earlier in June.
The opening of Outreach's Prague office comes six months after Outreach opened its first international office in London. The local team will be led by Tomas Bergl, who is responsible for driving innovation for Outreach's European operations. Bergl has more than 15 years of experience working on technical challenges and designing cutting-edge collaboration products and services during his time at Microsoft, Skype, and Opera. Bergl joins Outreach's growing AI team including Abhi Abhishek and Eugene Ho, both Microsoft veterans with extensive experience in AI and communication platforms.
"Prague is a natural fit for Outreach - it's a forward-thinking city, a leader in artificial intelligence research, and it is a place that is full of technical talent," said Manny Medina, chief executive officer and co-founder at Outreach. "Tomas brings invaluable experience creating products that bring people together and help them collaborate. His insights and experience will be invaluable as Outreach looks to further expand its footprint in customer engagement."
"I'm excited to join Outreach and help further develop the technology solutions that are creating and leading the sales engagement category," said Bergl. "Our Prague-based team plays a crucial role in developing the next generation of artificial intelligence-driven solutions that will define the future of customer engagement. We have some of the best technical talent right here in Prague and I can't wait to continue building our team."
The Prague team will be hosting an "open doors" event on August 13th at 18:00 CEST at the Visionary Building. This will be an opportunity to network and meet the Outreach team in-person while learning more about what the team is building. Space is limited. Interested parties can register here.
