As we start the New Year, it is with great pleasure I look back at one of the highlights from the end of 2017, Profitect’s official office opening and holiday party. The event took place December 15 and featured Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker as guest and keynote speaker. The event was a fantastic way to welcome everyone to our new headquarters in Burlington, MA. The new offices are welcome as we ended our second consecutive year of 200+ year over year growth.
In addition to overall revenue growth in 2017, Profitect saw an ongoing increase in staff across the company’s global offices. Our growing customer base and Profitect’s award-winning prescriptive analytic solution continues to be a key driver for recruiting talent. The event itself was a true success and team effort. I was thrilled we were able to share our new home away from home with many of Profitect’s renowned retail clients, partners, our esteemed Board of Advisors, key executives and venture capitalists in the industry, and of course family and friends. The Governor led a toast to all the many reasons Massachusetts remains a great place to call home. In addition to all the local talent, we have more than 100+ universities in the area, great technology and biotech companies for neighbors, great suburbs to call home and raise kids, and a great network of transportation to take you to the office and back home later in the day.
We’ve got a truly phenomenal group of people working at Profitect and I couldn’t be prouder to call them colleagues and friends. Governor Baker was very kind in his remarks to talk about Profitect’s innovation and how it seemed like a great place to be, and I couldn’t agree more. 2018 is shaping up to be our busiest and most successful to date, and I look forward to what the future holds.
