The Company, which provides an innovative suite of cloud-based networking and IT solutions to major global companies such as Kellogg’s, Warner Music Group, Mondelēz International and DS Smith plc., has recently opened brand new offices at Number 1 East Parade to accommodate its expanding team and growing service portfolio.
The company first set up in Leeds two years ago, with offices designed to house its global Networking Operations Centre. This has grown in size from 1500 sq ft to over 6000 sq ft as the business has expanded and a new Security Operations Centre has since been added. From these new offices, Xalient remotely monitors and manages the global networks of its clients, identifying issues and resolving them in real time.
Xalient CEO Sherry Vaswani said: “Due to new contract wins and a growth in the number and type of projects we are working on, we needed to significantly expand our UK office space. We have found the Leeds area to be a rich and diverse source of new IT skills for our business and have welcomed help from both the Enterprise Partnership and Leeds City Council, in making Xalient feel so welcome in the city. It was therefore a natural choice to expand our presence here.”
Representatives of Leeds City Council and Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, which have provided a range of support to help the business expand, recently joined Xalient and their clients to celebrate the official opening of the company’s new offices.
Leader of Leeds City Council, Councillor Judith Blake, said: “Xalient is a great success story for the city and the region. It demonstrates how entrepreneurship, the tech skills available in Leeds and the support we can offer to growing businesses, can combine to attract the brightest and most innovative global companies. We wish them a long and successful presence in our city.”
