Vancouver’s Clio, the leading cloud-based practice management platform for the legal industry, announced today the opening of a Toronto office to establish a presence in the all-important legal region that covers eastern Canada and the US.
According to their release today the new office in Toronto wil enhance the company’s ability to expand its customer base and customer service for the eastern seaboard and Europe.
The opening of the office builds on Clio’s 2013 growth which includes celebrating its fifth anniversary in October, launching the wildly successful first annual Clio Cloud Conference in September, and expanding into Europe with a new office in Dublin.
“It’s been a tremendous year of growth for Clio, and it’s the right time to open an office to facilitate even more rapid expansion in the east. Clio’s Toronto office will help deliver improved service to our large base of eastern customers, ” said Clio CEO and co-founder Jack Newton, adding “Toronto has a phenomenal talent base that we’ll be able to draw upon as we double our team size from 100 to 200 staff over the course of 2014. Steven Silberbach, who recently joined us as Vice President of Global Sales, will champion the process of building our Toronto presence.”
Silberbach joined Clio from Salesforce.com and is known for his expertise in scaling sales teams. With an office in the heart of the start-up community in downtown Toronto, recruitment is actively underway to staff up the sales organization to service the growing eastern client base.
“Hiring high-growth sales teams is one of the most exciting phases in the evolution of a company–and Clio plans to hire up to 30 new sales executives in the coming months,” said Silberbach. “Toronto offers an exceptional pool of qualified, cloud computing talent and we’re excited to bring Clio’s energy and momentum to the city. This new team will help support the ever-increasing appetite of our eastern clients for Clio’s legal practice management solution.”
