“OpenDrives’ continued momentum would not be possible without adding talent to our already strong team. Our new and existing team members are the heart-and-soul of our business,” says David Buss, CEO at OpenDrives. “As the company has grown, so has the number of industries we’re able to serve. I’m thrilled to bring on so many talented people to our team this year. Their collective knowledge will be extremely valuable as we continue to further strengthen our position in media and entertainment while expanding into new business segments.”

The company is scaling its team to meet product demand by new customers in emerging verticals, while also growing its channel strategy adding new partners such as Foto, DVE, AVC, SVC and Valient since its Insight announcement, building on existing partnerships with Diversified, Chesapeake and CMSI with over 65 authorized partners signed to-date. OpenDrives is projected to exceed revenue by 200% through the end of 2021 and it has increased employee headcount by 70% in the first quarter alone.
