“Expanding our presence in Brisbane is a response to the ongoing growth in demand from the Brisbane metro/Sunshine Coast region,” said McFarlane.
“We believe that the growth in the digital economy in Brisbane, driven by programs like Advance Queensland and through entities like Little Tokyo Two, River City Labs and the like make the city a natural fit for what we are great at – providing turnkey e-commerce and marketing solutions for online businesses.
“The opening of the Brisbane office and expansion of our team is a response to the explosion in this space – it also reflects our investment in building our capabilities in this area over the years in anticipation of the growth in demand.”
The Brisbane office is situated at 17 Brereton St, South Brisbane QLD 4101 and will house close to half of the team of around 20 staff to meet demand.
