Green Cloud Technologies, a Greenville-based cloud technology solutions provider, opened the company’s new Greenville, S.C. headquarters with South Carolina economic development leaders, county and city officials during a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday, September 25th. The company’s $7.8 million investment is projected to create approximately 50 new jobs over the next five years.
Green Cloud was founded in 2011 by IT, telecom and communications veterans who created a successful business model completely focused on building partner networks and providing customers with world-class servers, backup and recovery solutions. The company’s new 14,470 square-foot headquarters features semi-private workspaces with ergonomically designed workstations, a large open meeting space with high ceilings and natural light, a technology-rich multimedia studio for audio and video productions and a high-tech security system with smartphone controlled entry.
“Our new, modern office will accommodate our projected growth and build on our culture of innovation, teamwork and collaboration so we can continue to deliver sophisticated, cloud-based technology solutions to our customers,” said Green Cloud CEO and Co-Founder, Keith Coker. “Green Cloud’s accelerated growth over the last eight years is directly attributed to our talented, innovative and customer-centric employees, and today is a celebration of their contributions as we prepare for future growth.”
“Green Cloud Technologies is a great example of a company combining highly refined technology with the Upstate’s exceptional talent base to grow their business,” said Mayor Knox White of the City of Greenville. “The company has found a formula for success keyed on customer insight and innovation and serves as a great demonstration of our community’s collaborative approach to expanding its knowledge economy while leveraging the opportunities to be found in our city and state.”
Green Cloud was ranked 73rd on Inc. magazine’s Inc. 500 in 2016, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies and was an Inc. 5000 honoree in 2017 and 2018.
