When myself and James Chappell set the company up six years ago at a kitchen table in Camden, London, we suspected we had a good idea, but we didn’t quite envision just how cybercrime would proliferate and just how hard and complicated it would become for organizations to manage their digital risk. That’s where we feel we can help and why we have made such a bold bet on the future of Digital Shadows (now ReliaQuest). After 6 years of incredible growth, protecting hundreds of customers across the globe, I am excited to announce that Digital Shadows (now ReliaQuest) has opened a new state of the art London office in Canary Wharf.
We now nearly have 200 employees across the globe and London remains the beating heart of the operation where all of our product and engineering work occurs. Our new office in Canary Wharf marks a long-term commitment to London and means that we are now set up to expand the business significantly and service our clients even better. As a first step, we expect to create at least 20 jobs in London over the next year.
Today we hosted nearly 100 customers, employees, investors, advisors, media, friends, and family at the new office to celebrate. James helped me kick-off the event with a speech thanking all who have helped us advance Digital Shadows (now ReliaQuest) to this point. We then heard from guest speakers Lord Ashton, Sir George Iacobescu, Alex Macpherson, and Ben Brabyn and then we had a ribbon cutting ceremony.
What an event! It was a celebration of what we have accomplished so far and what is to come to help make the world a safer place. Thanks again to everyone who has helped us arrive here. We are excited for the future growth of the company and I can’t wait to see what evolves next. Cheers!
