In Touch, an exclusive network for elite business professionals, has today opened a brand new office in Chicago, enabling the firm to offer their acclaimed platform, development services and coaching packages to millions of professionals in the United States.

The office, located in the heart of Chicago, is now the central hub for all US operations and the new home to over 10 members of staff across sales, business services and operations. In addition to the brand new office, there is a new US website and portal for members to utilize.

The technology firm’s transatlantic move is being led by recently appointed President, Naomi Kent, formerly VP of Customer Success at Shareablee, a New York data analytics firm, and prior to that she was Global Head of Client Relations at BoardEx, a relationship capital firm. Oliver Giles has also relocated to their Chicago office to manage its new US sales team, utilizing the knowledge he has accumulated during his time in the UK sales division.

In Touch, headquartered in Spinningfields, Manchester, has gone from strength to strength since its inception in late 2013. The business, led by CEO, Matthew Roberts, has won numerous accolades, including being recognized as one of the UK’s fastest growing technology businesses for three consecutive years by Deloitte.

Expanding its services to the US was the next logical step for the fast-growing technology firm considering its phenomenal rate of growth. Senior business professionals across the states will now be able to access training, content and roles while employers can recruit independent board members and business leaders from the network free of charge.

In addition to memberships, the US team will deliver a wide range of industry-leading development products, including resume writing and LinkedIn profile development, plus various executive coaching packages. North American companies can also receive support to recruit talent for their boards by connecting with the In Touch business services team.

Commenting on the Chicago office opening, CEO Matthew Roberts says: “A lot of hard work has been put in over the last couple of months to prepare for our US launch, so I’m delighted to finally announce that we have opened the doors to our new office in North America.

To think that In Touch was formed just five years ago and is now a multi-million dollar business with an international office is an amazing achievement. We’ve worked incredibly hard to make this platform a success and the fact that we are now recognized as one of the largest global online networks for board-level professionals is a testament to our drive and determination to succeed.

Since day one, we’ve been passionate about transforming the way businesses recruit and people develop and I can’t wait to help thousands of US professionals transition to a new career as a board member with confidence.”
