FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany: HighQ, leading provider of secure data room, extranet, collaboration, know-how and publishing solutions are proud to announce the launch of their new office in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
HighQ made their first inroads into continental Europe in 2012 when they opened an office in Amsterdam. The success of the Amsterdam office has prompted HighQ to open a second office on the continent. "Germany was the obvious choice for a new European office," explains HighQ's CFO and Co-Founder Veenay Shah. "Germany is the biggest economy in Europe, and the opportunities are huge for HighQ there."
HighQ already provides client extranet, collaboration and publishing solutions to some of the world's leading law firms, financial institutions and corporations including 17 of the top 20 UK law firms. To build on its success in the UK, US, the Netherlands and Australia, HighQ have appointed Sean Kelly to set up and run HighQ's operations in Germany. Over the last 15 years, Sean built up the German operations at Imprima to a large, profitable team.
Sean hopes to achieve the same success with HighQ's German base. "We're planning on growing the Frankfurt team rapidly over the next few months," he explains. "There is enormous demand for products like HighQ's in Germany and I'm eager to get it out there."
When thinking about the future at HighQ, Sean is positive. "My first impression when I met the owners was that these were two guys that knew what they wanted and what space they wanted to be in. When I started, I realised they already are in that space, and that puts them at a tremendous advantage over other companies. For me, there is a lot of opportunity for expansion and room for me to develop as an individual, even at this point in my career!"
Speaking of the new appointment, Veenay said: "Sean is a great asset to the HighQ team. He has a fantastic track record of building teams, and his knowledge of the data room and enterprise collaboration market is second to none. He brings with him a wealth of experience and a true understanding of the challenges faced by many companies in Germany. We are confident that with Sean on board, we'll be able to work in close collaboration with our German clients and offer solutions that solve real business problems, reduce costs, build deeper client relationships and help gain a competitive advantage."
