By Thibaut Britz, Founder and CTO of Talkwalker
It’s been a busy 2015 so far for Talkwalker  with the introduction of new features, the arrival of new staff and the continued growth of the company. But by far the biggest news is that Talkwalker has opened a new office in New York City.
We have seen in the last months increasing interest and numerous new clients coming from the United States so we’re confident that our new office will be kept busy! Our new US entity will be led by a new arrival, CEO Americas Todd Grossman, who joins the executive team from Precise, a Kantar Media Company based in New York. Todd is a seasoned business leader with extensive experience in the fields of analytics, sales, PR and marketing. So it is great to get him on board to help spearhead our growth in North America.
Here in Europe and now in US, we continue to spread the word about social data intelligence and how companies can benefit from it. Companies across all industries from finance  to pharmaceuticals  and tech to retail are increasingly seeing the impact that social media analytics can have on their business so it’s a really exciting time. Later this year we’ll also be introducing a load of new features to the platform making it even easier to use and even more powerful than ever. 2015 is looking great so far and I can’t wait to see what the future brings!
