A West Coast cloud-based data protection company is moving its headquarters to the DMV region.
Los Angeles-based Infrascale, which provides data protection to its customers through backup and disaster recovery solutions, is relocating its headquarters to Reston, Virginia. The nine-year-old company’s CEO, Russell Reeder, said the company is making this move to NoVa because of the region’s “impressive talent pool” and Infrascale’s plan to grow its team here.
“We set out for a year of transformation, staging for growth and scale in 2021 and beyond,” said Reeder in a statement. “I’m extremely proud of the progress we’ve made to date, particularly given the challenging global climate caused by COVID-19. The formal transition to our new headquarters in Reston represents a significant milestone in our 2020 plan.”
This relocation comes after Infrascale went through some major leadership transitions earlier this year, including the CEO appointment of Reeder, who has an extensive history building technology businesses.
Reeder along with Infrascale CFO Rob Perterson, COO Brian Kuhn and Chief People Officer Carolyn Kress are now based in Reston and working on building the company’s operational teams, starting with hiring some finance and information technology professionals. Administration, IT, information security, marketing and sales are the main roles Infrascale will be looking to hire for right now. Some of the data company’s customer support, marketing and sales staff will remain as remote employees working from the LA area while the physical office there will be shuttered for good.
Infrascale has raised $25 million in venture capital to date, according to Crunchbase, including investments from Alexandria, Virginia-based Route 66 Ventures and San Francisco’s Carrick Capital.
“Their continued success is reflected in ongoing growth, and the company’s move to Reston — the home region for much of the nation’s tech talent — represents a positive and exciting development in the evolution of Infrascale as they grow into a key player in the enterprise market and continue to innovate,” said Ryan Katz, founding partner at Route 66 Ventures.
