Kimble Featured in Telegraph’s Technology Section
CEO Sean Hoban Tells Story of Kimble’s Growth in US Market
London, UK – 26 August 2019 – British national newspaper the Daily Telegraph ran a feature on Kimble Applications in its Technology section, focusing on the British-founded company’s success in the US.
Journalist James Cook interviewed Kimble CEO Sean Hoban about the company’s success since it was founded in London in 2011 – it now has five offices across the USA and North America is the fastest-growing area of the business.
Sean explains they began hiring in the US in response to demand:
“We were probably only a year old and we were getting interest from the US, from companies that clearly we’d never heard of. As an entrepreneur, you don’t like to turn down opportunities. We were doing demos remotely, but we’d be doing it at 9 and 10 o’clock at night.”
Now: “The momentum is all in the US”. The Telegraph article goes on to report that Kimble now has 77 employees in the US and 90 in the UK. It has more than 250 customers in 40 countries, who pay on average £60,000 a year to use the company’s software. This has led to £20m in annual revenue for the firm.
