Our Momentum Continues: Vyond Opens Chicago Office, Headed by CMO Van Diamandakis
We’re excited to announce the opening of our new Vyond Chicago office, located in the Windy City’s dynamic tech hub, Fulton Market. Our new location at 159 North Sangamon Street will accelerate our regional growth, with over 20 new hires planned in sales, marketing, and customer success. The expansion brings us in close proximity to our growing customer base of more than 50 local organizations.
Leading our new office will be recently-appointed Chief Marketing Officer Van Diamandakis, a tech industry veteran who previously led marketing and sales at WANdisco, Persado, Sage, Joyent, and Riverbed Technology, among others.
“The Midwest and the Chicagoland area represent a huge market opportunity for Vyond because we provide a solution that makes business-critical content stick,” commented Diamandakis. “Whether that content is for eLearning, HR, internal comms, or sales and marketing, Vyond’s intelligent, AI-driven video creation solution helps enterprises deliver compelling video that drives engagement and retention. As a Chicago native, I’m excited to lead the team that will not only support and grow our business in the region but will also integrate Vyond’s brand into the local business community.”
Board member Kevin Willer, partner at Chicago Ventures and a personal investor in Vyond, thinks that Vyond’s new presence in the Midwest will reap significant rewards.
“Chicago is one of the world’s most dynamic and exciting cities for business,” said Willer. “Our region is home to numerous enterprise companies that truly need Vyond to accelerate their video-based learning programs for training, education, and employee development. We are expecting great things in terms of growth, and our firm is looking forward to collaborating with Vyond as their solution is embraced by customers throughout the Midwest.”
The Vyond Chicago office opens on December 5, 2022.
