About six months ago, we began a comprehensive evaluation to identify the next expansion point for our Customer Success organization.

Our Customer Success team continues to grow and put more focus on customer engagement, which is important to all of us at BlueCat. We evaluated several locations using criteria that included language proficiency, technical skill, and BlueCat cultural fit. We awarded each country points for specific criteria and, when the dust settled, we had a clear winner.

I’m thrilled that we have opened our new Customer Care and Integration Development Center in Belgrade, Serbia. This move is a testament to BlueCat’s commitment to greatly accelerate growth, increase our customer-first approach, and expand our geographic reach and footprint in the EMEA region.

Kickoff at the Canadian Embassy

We recently held a kickoff party at the Canadian Embassy in Belgrade. Stephen Devito, our Chief Executive Officer, and Cheryl Kerrigan, our Chief People Officer, joined me. We also invited our new team, local business leaders, and trade and economic delegates.

It was a chance to introduce BlueCat, highlight our mission to help organizations deliver reliable and secure network access from any location and any environment, and explain why we chose Serbia. It also allowed us to also make important connections to people in local industry who helped throughout the process and will continue to help as we grow.

Demand for DDI management platforms that improve network access, control, automation, and security is increasing. The Serbian office will enhance our support programs and our Automation Integrations teams. It will help BlueCat expand the delivery of third-party software integrations (e.g., ServiceNow, Ansible, Terraform, VMware, Splunk, etc.) that are critical to helping our customers realize their network automation goals. It will also allow us to expand the care provided to our regional customers and continue building our award-winning support organization.

A match for BlueCat’s culture

BlueCat is proud of our culture, which has been crucial for attracting and retaining talent around the globe. We’ve been a Great Place To Work® for seven straight years. By fostering a positive and supportive work environment, we attract and retain the best talent in the industry.

In Serbia, we found 14 talented and experienced professionals who share our core values. Each of them is ready to ensure our customers’ needs are resolved quickly and efficiently. We welcome them to our BlueCat family and look forward to their contributions. Shortly, more BlueCat people will join them as we look to expand over the next year.

BlueCat has delivered industry-leading solutions for DNS, network automation, and security for the world’s largest organizations for more than 22 years. We are extremely excited about this new chapter in our company’s history. And we are confident that our new Customer Care and Integration Development Center will be a great success.

We are also grateful for the continued support from our employees, customers, partners, and local trade boards and commissions. We look forward to working closely with them to achieve our goals. Our investment in Serbia has just begun.
