PROVIDENCE – GreenBytes Inc., a developer of desktop virtualization services, has relocated its headquarters downtown and expanded its corporate offices.
The company, founded in 2007 in Westerly, said the move was necessitated by “significant business growth” and that it will enable “more expansive employee recruitment and business operations.”
The move is the latest news for GreenBytes, which appointed Stephen O’Donnell as CEO and Brett Johnson as senior vice president of global sales in 2012.
Also in 2012, the company landed $12 million in series B funding from Generation Investment Management, Battery Ventures and the company’s founders to help accelerate sales and marketing efforts for its desktop virtualization system: the IO Offload Engine.
“With a rapidly expanding business in an extremely hot market, we are faced with an ongoing increase in company personnel, and this office move enables GreenBytes to accommodate growth and plan for further business expansion,” O’Donnell said.
The company has 27 people based in Providence, along with two in Texas (one in Austin, the other in Houston), two just outside Los Angeles and six in Europe (split between Amsterdam and London).
GreenBytes’ new corporate headquarters is located in about 5,500 square feet at 275 Promenade St. •
