Box chooses London’s Tech City for its new European HQ
Box, Inc., a leader in cloud content management, today announced the opening of its new European headquarters in London’s Tech City. Based in the heart of London’s thriving tech community, Box has moved into the top two floors of the newly built White Collar Factory on Old Street.
“We’ve rapidly out-grown our previous London office, as we continued to hire and expand in the UK and across Europe,” said David Benjamin, Box senior vice president and general manager of EMEA. “London is a strategic hub for our European business, and our new office will give us space to grow while keeping us close to our UK and European customers.”
Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Matt Hancock, said:
“It’s fantastic news that Box has chosen London for its European headquarters, strengthening its relationship with Britain.
“We’re working hard to make the UK the best place in the world to start and grow a digital business and Box’s decision is a testament to our talent pool, creativity and leading business environment.”
Since its European debut in 2012, Box has opened offices in London, Paris, Stockholm, Amsterdam, and Munich. It employs nearly 200 staff across Europe and is growing in each country. The London office has become home to its UK-based employees who now occupy the 14th and 15th floor of the White Collar Factory building.
The launch of Box Zones, Box Governance, and its Binding Corporate Rules approval have all contributed to Box’s success in Europe, by allowing even the most security-conscious companies to use Box for cloud content management.
Box makes it easy for more than 80,000 organisations around the world to share, access, and collaborate on files securely, including the Metropolitan Police Service of London, Eurostar, AstraZeneca, General Electric, Virgin Trains, Schneider Electric, Oxfam, and more.
