Company Expands Internationally with new VP of EMEA and First Office in Asia
AUSTIN, November 28, 2012 – SailPoint, the market leader in identity and access management, today announced it has hired more than 100 new employees over the past year and expanded into Asia. The company will end the year with more than 275 employees worldwide, with approximately half of those employees based in Austin. To accommodate that growth, the company has moved its global headquarters to 11305 Four Points Drive in Austin – a building designated as a gold-certified Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) facility. SailPoint now occupies just over 30,000 square feet, and plans to expand to 40,000 square feet by mid-2013. The new office continues SailPoint’s tradition of a cube-free work environment, provides additional collaboration space, and features a state-of-the-art training center.
“SailPoint has seen rapid growth over the past few years, both through organic expansion and strategic acquisitions, which caused us to quickly outgrow our previous office space,” said Mark McClain, SailPoint’s CEO. “We now have the largest dedicated identity and access management team in the world. Our new headquarters accommodates that rapid growth, as well as our plans for continued expansion next year. The new facility provides a great home base for our global workforce and gives us excellent meeting space for customers and partners when they visit Austin. As we grow, we continue to maintain and adapt our corporate culture, part of the reason we were named a ‘Best Place to Work’ in Austin each of the last two years.”
To support its international growth, SailPoint recently opened a Center of Excellence in Singapore. The new location means that SailPoint now has offices in seven countries supporting hundreds of customers across 26 countries. In addition, the company continues to hire staff across the globe to support its expansion into Asia and other emerging markets. SailPoint today also announced that Tony Foley has joined the company as vice president of Europe. Foley has previously held executive positions at Quest Software, where prior to heading worldwide sales, he was vice president of EMEA, and Software AG, where he was responsible for the company’s Latin American operations. In his role at SailPoint, he will provide leadership for company’s continued expansion across Europe.
“While SailPoint has grown at an incredible pace, we’ve made sure that growth was both measured and methodical in order to maintain our focus on product innovation and customer service,” added Kevin Cunningham, president of SailPoint. “Tony brings considerable experience in building software companies and is a great addition to lead our European operations. He’ll provide a valuable mix of leadership, sales strategy and on-the-ground support to our team across the EMEA region.”
