In 2009, AsiaInfo-Linkage began expanding its core business in Southeast Asia. AsiaInfo-Linkage is now targeting broader geographical expansion in the Europe, Middle East and Africa market.
The new regional headquarters in Cambridge will be led by two former executives of Geneva Technology, the Cambridge-based billing software company acquired by Convergys in 2001.
"The opening of our new European headquarters is another major step in our international expansion efforts," said AsiaInfo-Linkage President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Zhang. "Our focus over the past few quarters has been to ramp up our product standardization and integration initiatives as we position ourselves to grow globally. We believe we can leverage our technical knowledge and experience in serving China's three telecom carriers, as well as our experience serving carriers in Southeast Asia, to provide the EMEA market with world-class products and services."
The company added that it plans to hire locally-based sales, professional services, and customer support staff for the EMEA region through 2012.
