Lancaster tech company opens office in Fla.
A Lancaster-based technology firm is expanding its footprint out-of-state.
Track5Media, LLC last month opened a new office in St. Petersburg, Florida.
By having two locations, the company hopes it will be able to attract technical talent from a larger pool, Oliver Feakins, president of Track5Media, said.
“We hope that the Florida office will give us the flexibility to hire a talent pool with the very best skillset regardless of if they are in Lancaster or Florida,” Feakins said in a statement.
The approximately 1,400-square-foot tech hub in Florida currently houses five employees with more to come.
Austin Smith, the director of development, oversees the Florida operations. Smith works closely with team members in Lancaster.
“Tampa Bay is rapidly transforming into a center for technology, and it offers a unique waterfront lifestyle that makes for a highly desirable place for our employees to live and work. We considered many cities throughout this process, but it was clearly evident that St. Petersburg was the ideal choice for our expansion,” Smith said in a statement.
Collectively, Track5Media has 20 full-time employees and three interns. The firm said it is still looking for more developers and graphic designers.
Founded in 2007, Track5Media has a strong concentration in healthcare recruitment advertising. As a corporate holding company, Track5Media owns a network of industry-specific websites including several related to trucking. The brands are designed to help clients find a steady stream of qualified referrals.
