Flock Selects Boston as North American Headquarters to Build GTM Operations

Sponsored by Businesswire

a workplace collaboration platform offering a full-suite of
communication and productivity tools, has chosen Boston as its North
American headquarters and the global center of its go-to-market (GTM)
operations. With plans to hire for more than 20 open sales and marketing
roles in Boston before the end of the year, Flock has recently appointed
Ryan Kelly and Nick D’Ascensao as vice president of global marketing and
vice president of global sales, respectively. They’ll lead the charge
with Chief Revenue Officer Sam Mallikarjunan under Founder and Chief
Executive Officer Bhavin Turakhia.

Turakhia is a serial entrepreneur and self-made billionaire who sees
Boston as a breeding ground for his next major success with Flock,
thanks to the availability of top-level talent and continued tech sector
growth. He is already familiar with the Boston area, having sold a part
of his company, Directi, to Burlington, Massachusetts-based Endurance
International Group in 2014. Flock is the fourth company Turakhia has
successfully bootstrapped, with two nine-figure exits over his career so

“We see tremendous potential in the Boston area, especially when it
comes to recruiting top talent to help Flock become the leading
workplace collaboration platform,” said Turakhia. “There are many
parallels between Boston and India, where Flock was founded five years
ago, since both are on the rise in the larger tech scene and offer
immense growth opportunities. This made it an easy decision to select
Boston as our North American headquarters over tech heavyweights like
Silicon Valley.”

With the team collaboration market expected to clock
a net worth of $43.1 billion USD by 2022
, Flock aims to improve team
collaboration and communication through its rich and intuitive messenger
service. The company wants to create a single, secure platform where
workplace productivity can be managed. The recent launch of Flockmail
further expands the company’s suite of products, improving email
communication capabilities for Flock users.

The new marketing and sales vice presidents will work with Mallikarjunan
to support global expansion goals. Kelly
joins from Nanigans and will be responsible for building Flock’s global
brand and lead all aspects of marketing across the organization. D’Ascensao
joins from ezCater and will expand Flock’s sales organization to support
new revenue growth across the Americas, EMEA and APAC.
