Public cloud specialist Cloudreach has expanded into Sweden - its first office in the Nordics - in a move the firm says is designed to better serve its high-profile customers.
The new base will be in Stockholm, which Cloudreach's head of Europe Chris Bunch says will give the company access to top talent attracted to the city's high quality of life.
"Sweden is a natural fit for Cloudreach and I'm incredibly excited about working with our hyperscale cloud vendors to provide cloud-native software and services to companies looking for a mature, scaled partner," he said.
"Stockholm is emerging as a hub for innovative start-ups and established tech players alike… It is an ideal base for Cloudreach to grow its world-class team, and be closer to its customers in the region."
The firm says that the Nordics "is rapidly becoming a key market for Cloudreach".
The UK-based cloud consultancy also pointed to the investment of the world's top hyperscalers in the region.
"The opportunities in the cloud market have been noticed by the major cloud service providers, with AWS, Azure and GCP choosing Sweden, Norway and Finland respectively, as the locations for their datacentres in the region."
Cloudreach's first organic expansion of 2019 follows an acquisitive 2018.
Last year, the private equity-owned consultancy crossed the Atlantic to snap up US-based ETA and Relus Cloud, adding enterprise analytics and AI expertise to its portfolio.
It also opened two new European offices, in Cologne and Berlin, in 2017.
