CHICAGO, May 3, 2018 – Avionos, a digital marketing and commerce solutions provider focused on connected customer engagement, plans to expand its Chicago workforce by an additional 50 percent in the coming year. This follows its nearly 300 percent growth over the past two years. As a part of its continued growth, the company will be expanding its US presence with the addition of a New York office.
Avionos’ unique Rapid Innovation approach transforms traditional consulting by empowering global brands to more nimbly compete in today’s landscape of ever-changing customer demands. This combination of agility and commerce marketing delivers a more impactful customer experience focused on flexibility and scalability. These insights, alongside its results-driven culture, have lead to increased demand and tremendous growth over the last few years.
“Our innovative mentality and extensive experience in helping organizations adapt to digital transformation is really what sets our team apart. Our people have allowed us to continue to grow and help organizations across industries be more successful,” says Scott Webb, president of Avionos. “To be able to grow so quickly, and with such talented people, is truly a testament to the work we have done and the team we’ve built.”
After continued growth in Chicago and launching its West Coast presence in 2017, Avionos will be expanding East in 2018, with the opening of a New York office. Chris Peña, an eCommerce industry veteran with more than a decade of experience in commerce platforms and implementation will be leading the office. His extensive digital strategy expertise, combined with his track record of customer success will play a key role in the next phase of Avionos’ growth.
“We’ve carved out a unique place within the Chicago tech landscape, and we’re excited to be able to do the same in New York,” says Dan Neiweem, co-founder and partner of Avionos. “As we continue to grow and define next-level commerce solutions, we’re confident that Chris will help us bring a wave of innovation throughout the East Coast with his unique ability to think outside the box and drive results.”
Avionos’ rapid growth is emblematic of its investment backers, Aktion Partners’, history of investing in successful Chicago technology companies, having recently sold its latest venture, CloudCraze, to Salesforce in March 2018. As Avionos continues into 2018, the company works to advance and implement innovative solutions for brands like Sysco Foods, Jones Lang Lasalle and Kellogg’s.
Most recently recognized as the No. 57 business on the Crain’s Chicago Business “2018 Best Places to Work” list, Avionos experienced many accolades and accomplishments over the past year. In 2017 the company was named a finalist in the Acquia Engage Awards; announced a platinum partnership with CloudCraze, a Salesforce company; and solidified a partnership with Adobe and commercetools. Jim Sherman also joined the company in March 2017 as CFO to further expand the leadership team and grow revenue.
