The new North American headquarters in Charlotte is an expansion and relocation of Eontec’s existing US headquarters, designed to accommodate additional employees for sales, support and services. Eontec initially chose Charlotte for its North American headquarters because of its position as a major emerging technology and communications centre and banking hub. Eontec believes the city’s large resource pool of skilled professionals will continue to be an advantage as it has already significantly contributed to the company’s success. “This expansion is evidence of Eontec’s strength and commitment to the banking and financial industry in North America,” said Jim Callan, chief executive officer of Eontec. “The new premises will solidify our sales support and professional services infrastructure in North America.” The North American division office in Toronto is a result of Eontec’s aggressive sales and marketing progress. Located in Toronto’s financial district, the office will provide customer service and technical support for all of Eontec’s North American customers, as well as an expansion of the emerging technology unit from Dublin, Ireland. The facility is staffed with a team of marketing and sales professionals as well as technical experts. “Eontec's products and services are being well accepted and our customer base continues to grow,” stated Todd James, senior vice president of business development and sales of Eontec North America. “We are a company on a path of diligent growth by providing excellent products and services to our clients. “ About Eontec: Eontec is the global leader in the provision of multi-channel banking solutions.
