SalesLoft Opens EMEA Headquarters In London With LinkedIn Veteran At the Helm

by Holly Beilin

SalesLoft, one of the Southeast’s fastest-growing software companies, has expanded across the pond. This week, they opened their Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) headquarters in London.

The London office will be led by Ollie Sharpe, SalesLoft’s new VP of EMEA Revenue. Sharpe formerly worked for over a decade as a leader in LinkedIn’s EMEA team.

He says he was “blown away” by SalesLoft’s product.

“Having come from a sales and sales leadership background, as soon as I saw the product I realized what a huge impact it can have for sales reps, sales managers, and even entire organizations.”

SalesLoft already has clients in the EMEA region, but intends to expand on that quickly. Sharpe calls it a “massive growth opportunity.”

He plans to hire about a dozen in London over the next few months across sales, marketing, and customer success to support and grow SalesLoft’s international customer base.

SalesLoft as a whole is in a high-growth phase following last year’s $50 million Series C funding round, led by Insight Venture Partners. They have been ranked as the seventh fastest-growing technology company in North America by Deloitte.

After the Series C, founder and CEO Kyle Porter shared plans to double their headcount, then 200. SalesLoft is now at 375 employees across their Atlanta headquarters, San Francisco, New York, and Guadalajara, Mexico.

“Looking at the trajectory of SalesLoft in the last few years and the growth mindset of the leaders, the path to success is clear,” says Sharpe. “When you combine that with how great the product itself and the timing of the EMEA expansion, I’m not sure anything can stop us.”
