Hedgehog Opens First European Office

Holbrook, NY (August 1, 2012) – In a strategic move to further its already solid reputation and elite status as the go-to partner for companies who rely on two of the world’s most important and robust development platforms (Sitecore® Content Management System and Microsoft® .NET), Hedgehog, a leading custom application development company, today announced the opening of its first European office in Sofia, Bulgaria. The decision to establish a beachhead in a European city and country known for its strong tradition in the computer science and technology sectors and its ready embracement of Western culture, speaks volumes about Hedgehog’s ongoing commitment to providing high-quality service to its clients across the globe.

 

Aleksandar (Alex) Kamburov, an employee of Hedgehog and native of Bulgaria, was appointed General Manager of the Sofia office. An accomplished software developer, Kamburov earned his Masters degree in computer science from the Technical University of Sofia, and also has an MBA from the Institut de la Francophonie pour l’Administration et la Gestion. The multi-lingual Kamburov is the embodiment of the ‘If you can dream it, we can make it happen” philosophy that drives Hedgehog’s culture.  

 

“Recognizing a growing global demand for our services, we carefully evaluated the geographic options for expansion and Bulgaria was the natural choice,” explains Dan Galvez, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Hedgehog. “Now, with our new office in Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia, we can locally support those eager new clients and our partners in Europe and beyond who want to work with us,” added Galvez. The Sofia office, which is located in the famous Interpred World Trade Center Building, expects to quadruple its office space capacity within five years.

 

With its newly renovated and expanded headquarters on Long Island, New York --- which experienced 40% growth in personnel in the second quarter of 2012, a new office in Bulgaria, strategic market partnerships in Australia, Canada, Denmark, and The United Kingdom, and an impressive list of awards and recognition to its name, Hedgehog’s reputation as a trusted, highly sought-after global leader continues to grow at a rapid pace.

 

In 2012 alone, the company received its second “Sitecore Site of the Year” award for its work with Equinox Fitness Clubs; two Hedgehog employees earned the distinction of being named Sitecore MVPs; and the company received recognition for its expertise in a professional Sitecore development book. These awards, distinctions, and recognition translate to a host of exclusive benefits for Hedgehog’s clientele, ranging from access to early adopter software to priority customer support services.
