CALGARY, Canada—May 17, 2018—Arundo Analytics, a software company enabling advanced analytics in heavy industry, today announced that it is expanding its presence in Calgary, Canada. Sheila Varjassy, Senior Account Executive, will spearhead Arundo’s office in Calgary with a focus on serving oil & gas and other industrial companies in digital transformation and advanced analytics efforts.
“Given our heritage, focus and experience in the global oil & gas industry, Calgary is a natural extension of our North American presence,” said Piers Wells, VP North America Sales, Arundo Analytics. “Calgary represents a significant concentration of the largest energy companies in Canada. With this new office, we are excited to be better positioned to serve them.”
According to Calgary Economic Development, a not-for-profit corporation funded by the City of Calgary, two thirds of all major upstream, downstream and midstream companies have their head offices in Calgary.
Since March, Arundo has announced several major global partnerships with companies serving the subsea, energy and asset-heavy sectors, including Acteon Group, ABB and WorleyParsons. Arundo will look to add to its growing roster of partnerships from its new Calgary presence.
Arundo’s expansion to Calgary also comes amid significant personnel growth; a 46 percent increase in global headcount since the company’s Series A $25 million funding round in January of this year. Varjassy joins Arundo with many years of software sales and delivery experience in Western Canada, most recently from OpenText and Appian Corporation.
