“While we’ve long worked with US companies—both as customers and with our partner agencies—opening an office in the United States puts us much closer to them and to other agencies and companies that could benefit from our editor-friendly, .NET-based, open source CMS,” said Jake Compton, partner sales manager and head of Umbraco’s US office. “We chose Charlotte in particular because the up-and-coming city gave us everything we were looking for in a US hub, from an educated and technical workforce, to a reasonable cost of living, a great climate, and many one-connection flights for our Danish executives needing to visit. We’re also within short flights of all major US cities so we can visit customers and partners when needed to help with training and support.”

One of the most recent, Turn Agency, has been using Umbraco as its CMS of choice for more than 12 years. “As an organization, we’re truly passionate about Umbraco, as it enables us to do much bigger projects for our clients than most other agencies our size,” said Jeremiah Bascue, founder/developer, Turn Agency. “We’re able to get our clients ramped up and actually deploying a site within hours rather than days, or even weeks. And we love that we can give our smaller retail clients the same enterprise-level web experience that a big box retailer might get, all without huge licensing fees. Becoming a gold partner this year was a logical next step.”
