XPLANE opens office in Europe!

Here's a happy announcement:

XPLANE is opening a European office. Quietly, last fall, we acquired a Madrid-based information firm called IdeaMaps. I am happy to say that in January I will be going to Madrid to formally launch the venture and train the IdeaMaps team in "the XPLANE way." Going forward, IdeaMaps will be known as XPLANE EU and will be serving XPLANE clients in Europe and neighboring regions.

I'm so excited that I keep hearing Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison singing in my ear:

"The rain in Spain falls mainly on XPLANE."

There will be plenty more to come on this subject, I have no doubt. Meanwhile, if you are in Europe please leave a comment on this post and introduce yourself! I'll be looking forward to meeting you in person.

Keep in touch! Sign up to get updates and occasional emails from me.

nic mitham said...

Congratulations. You're a pretty unique company, so I'm sure your EU strategy will work well.
One thing though - why Spain? The weather is much better in the UK.......if you like rain.

Ryan said...

Wow - congrats Dave/Xplane!

judyofthewoods said...

Congratulation, Dave. I hope the rain falling on XPLANE will make it sprout and blossom. But I agree, the weather is more suitable in the UK.

dave said...

Don't worry -- I'm sure I'll be in the UK pretty frequently :)

I heard this coming through the grapevine...congrats on the move to the 'old continent'! Madrid is a nice place to be - not just because of the weather - but it's a very up-and-coming city with a hint of avant-garde.

I'm a big fan of Xplane's solutions so (if you don't mind) I'll swing by and check it out if I'm around Madrid. At least I could get my copy of the 'Selling to the VP of NO' signed!

Best wishes from The Netherlands!
