GuyKat COO, Mark Broadbent, said: “Our journey has seen us grow from a small eLearning agency based in the Midlands to a professional services company supporting clients all around the world. The opening of GuyKat Inc. is an early milestone in the next phase of our expansion plans. It allows us to provide a greater level of support to our growing client base across North America.”
2019 is GuyKat’s 10th anniversary. Since the foundation, the company has worked on hundreds of eLearning projects for clients based across the globe. Building a physical presence in key geographies is seen as the next logical move in the company’s growth.
GuyKat CEO said: “This is a big move for us. I’m delighted that our clients in the US will now be able to speak to somebody in the same time zone, and that where necessary site visits will be easier. The most important message to our existing clients is that for project delivery, nothing will change. You will still be working with our awesome team based at our Birmingham HQ. The focus of the US office in the short term is on sales, account management and customer success.”
More key announcements relating to growth are anticipated over the coming weeks.
GuyKat has received support from the Business Growth Programme 2. The Business Growth Programme is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and managed by Birmingham City Council. Councilor Jayne Francis, Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Culture at Birmingham City Council said; “Local businesses are the lifeblood of our local economy and supporting companies like Guykat Solutions Ltd are very important to Birmingham City Council. Securing this grant has enabled the agency to make a real difference to their business and we look forward to supporting their growth and that of other SMEs through this initiative.”
