San Francisco-based enterprise data connectivity and analytics platform LiveRamp has announced plans to open a new office in Greater Phoenix, where it will recruit 100 employees. The firm's expansion team is currently scouting locations for a permanent office space.
LiveRamp was acquired by Acxiom Corporation in 2014, but by 2018 had become such a key part of it that Acxiom sold its original Marketing Solutions business (AMS) to marcoms giant Interpublic Group for $2.3bn in cash, with the remaining unit taking the LiveRamp name. The company also has US offices in New York, Philadelphia, Little Rock and Boston, as well as international offices in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Sydney, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo and Nantong.
Initial plans in Phoenix including hiring for customer support, customer success and business enablement teams. CEO Scott Howe (pictured) comments: 'Phoenix has long been on our radar as a vibrant area with a wellspring of talent, plus a great place to live and work. A new office here unlocks more employment opportunities and a scalable path to growth in close proximity to our San Francisco headquarters'.
