Aconex expands in north America

It looks like north America is the new battleground for a handful of SaaS construction collaboration technology vendors more usually associated with operations in Europe and other regions.

Along with UK-based 4Projects (post) and BIW Technologies (post), Australian company Aconex is rapidly expanding its operations in the US. According to a news release issued today, Aconex has appointed two “industry veterans” to lead its sales operations in north America: Paul Cardone (formerly of Skire) and Darryl Pettinelli (from Deltek) have been recruited to help Aconex take advantage of an apparent bounce-back from the recession (post) in the US market.

Dexter Bachelder, Vice President, Aconex says:

“The last 12 months have been really exciting for us, as we have won a number of major clients and high profile projects. We have already established 10 offices in North America, which give us a coast-coast presence, and we are hiring aggressively from within the construction and engineering communities to support the demand we are seeing from clients.”
