Expanding IT company Bam Boom Cloud is to establish its global headquarters in Derby in a major boost to the city’s economic recovery efforts.
The firm, which was known as Cooper Parry IT until a buy-out by its management team earlier this year, employs 100 people, has operations in the US, Canada, India and Ireland and is looking for further growth in Germany and the UAE.
It has now signed a five-year lease on a three-storey Grade 2-listed building in Derby’s historic Wardwick and has drawn up plans for a new internal layout – including the creation of a staff bar and computer games area.
The firm’s UK-based team will use the 6,500 sq ft office for meetings and creative sessions, alongside working from home.
Its move, scheduled for the summer, has been assisted by Derby City Council, Marketing Derby and property group Staton Young, which owns the building.
Bam Boom Cloud Chief Executive Vicky Critchley said the company had entered an ambitious phase following the MBO and was targeting a trebling of its £9 million turnover during the next three years.
Vicky said she was delighted to be able to bring the business to Derby from its previous base
