Cvent Fredericton Announces Accelerated Expansion Plans with Support from Opportunities New Brunswick
Inc., a market leader in meetings, events, and hospitality
technology, today announced plans to expand their Fredericton office and
accelerate their headcount growth with support from Opportunities New
Brunswick (ONB). The $385,000 investment, in the form of payroll
support, will help to create 25 full-time positions in the region over
the course of 3 years and highlights Cvent's (News - Alert) dedication to growing its
presence in this region. The two parties made the announcement at a
joint press conference this morning in Fredericton.
"When we first opened our Fredericton location in 2014, there were five
people in the office. Now, less than four years later, we have nearly
100. This immense expansion is due in large part to the incredible local
talent that the New Brunswick area offers," said Pradeep Mannakkara,
Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Cvent, who was on
hand to make the announcement. "With the generous support from
Opportunities New Brunswick, we are able to accelerate this growth even
further and continue to attract and retain top talent. As a global
leader in the industry, we are dedicated to creating innovative products
that help us transform the meeting and events industry - and we are
looking forward to leveraging our resources in New Brunswick as we
continue to innovate globally."
"Strategic investments in cutting-edge companies like Cvent are driving
economic growth in New Brunswick," said deputy premier Stephen Horsman.
"Cvent is offering the types of jobs that young New Brunswickers are
going to want to pursue. This is more evidence that our economic growth
plan is working and that we re getting things done on behalf of this
province's working families."
To support the expanded headcount, Cvent will move the Fredericton team
to a state-of-the-art 15,000 sq. ft. fully renovated office this
November, located in the heart of downtown.
"Cvent has continued to steadily grow from a small startup in 1999, to a
globally recognized software leader with more than 3,200 employees
across 17 offices worldwide," said Founder and CEO Reggie Aggarwal (News - Alert).
"While our growth has been rapid, our winning culture - and our
unwavering focus on our employees - has remained core to what we do. We
continue to invest heavily in our regional offices like Fredericton to
ensure we can innovate at a rapid pace. We encourage everyone who wants
