SADA is excited to announce the opening of an office in Toronto, Ontario. Our new office, located in WeWork’s Richmond Street West workspace in the heart of Toronto’s tech hub, will be staffed by top engineering and sales personnel from SADA, which already has a strong presence in the country.
We have migrated hundreds of thousands of users and workloads to Google Cloud technologies and solutions since 2007. Our Google Cloud business in Canada represents a significant portion of our revenues, which exceeded $127 million in 2018. We have over 200 customers in Canada currently, including the City of Toronto, PC Financial Bank, Re-max Integra, Boston Pizza and Roots Canada. Having a Canadian presence will allow us to work even more closely with key customers and the Google Cloud organization in the country. We plan to hire top local engineering talent to fulfill the needs of our customers in the region.
“Companies with SADA’s track record are in demand around the world, so this expansion to Toronto recognizes that the talent, business environment and quality of life found throughout Canada all help drive investment and attract employers.” said Zaib Shaikh, Consul General of Canada in Los Angeles. “Congratulations and welcome to this high-growth California company for choosing Canada as the best place to expand its business and for joining the globally celebrated tech ecosystem in Toronto.”
We have worked closely with Toronto Global, a team of experienced business advisors assisting global businesses to expand into the Toronto Region.
“I am very pleased that SADA has chosen to locate its new office in Toronto to take advantage of our talent pipeline and superior market access,” said Toronto Mayor John Tory. “Toronto is a magnet for companies around the world, and I know that our highly-skilled, diverse workforce will continue to attract tech investment in record numbers — growing our economy and creating new opportunities in the Toronto Region.”
We are proud to have earned multiple awards and recognitions from Google Cloud in recent years, including the Google Cloud North America Sales Partner of the Year award, the Google Cloud Americas Partner award for GCP Customer Success, and the Google Cloud Americas Partner award for Maps Customer Success. We have also achieved the Infrastructure, Location-Based Services and Enterprise Collaboration Partner Specializations in the Google Cloud Partner Specialization Program.
“SADA has a proven track record in helping companies successfully leverage Google Cloud infrastructure and applications,” says Andrea Wickel, head of corporate sales for Google Cloud Canada. “Its sales and engineering staff have extensive knowledge of our tools and technologies, and we look forward to working more closely with them as they expand their presence in Canada.”
“We have had great success in Canada over the past several years,” says Tony Safoian, President and CEO of SADA Systems. “Opening an office in Canada allows us to be even closer to our customers in the country, who are aggressively expanding their use of Google Cloud technologies and solutions. What’s more, the Google Cloud Canada team has expressed a desire for us to be closer to them geographically leveraging our sales and engineering expertise to duplicate the success we’ve enjoyed together in the U.S.”
