Qumulo today announced the opening of a new Minneapolis office to take advantage of the strong digital and marketing and optimization talent in the Twin Cities. As the demand for Qumulo solutions has accelerated, this new location provides the company with the ideal environment to scale its go-to-market reach and influence.

“We’re building a world-class marketing organization and the exceptional talent we’ve brought on in Minneapolis has been instrumental in expanding our global demand generation capabilities,” said Peter Zaballos, CMO at Qumulo. “With this additional location, we’re able to better serve our rapidly growing customer base. We are doubling down on our technology innovation as we continue to expand our team and presence in the coming year.”

The new office location will elevate Qumulo’s presence in Minneapolis, one of the top three U.S cities for high growth technology companies.

“Minneapolis has long been recognized as a hotbed of marketing talent. With a rich agency history, thriving startup community, and strong concentration of Fortune 500’s, the talent pool in Minnesota is robust,” said Jennifer Zick, Founder and CEO of Authentic Brand, a Minneapolis-based marketing leadership firm. “We’re excited for Qumulo to move deeper into the Twin Cities tech community and contribute to its innovative spirit with their growing team of well-respected, highly experienced digital sales and marketing professionals.”

The company has more than 200 employees and serves hundreds of enterprise customers. Qumulo’s corporate momentum underscores its overall business proposition and technical innovation.
