Progress becomes a hamburger

photo4Security outfit Progress has launched a company in Germany, kickstarted with a Hamburg office and a new German country manager.

Progress was launched last year by John Quinn and is now taking heading into central Europe.

Progress has taken on a dedicated Spanish region manager, based in Madrid, as the firm looks to build its presence in Iberia.

The company said that its European arms will largely be built up of vendors that have a relationship with Progress in the UK, which are looking to move quickly into other European territories.

The normal process for Vendors is to start in the UK, move to the Nordics and the central Europe but Progress is going straight to Central Europe from the UK .

This was mostly because most of the company’s vendors wanted to be in central Europe and a couple of them were already there.

After establishing the Hamburg office Progress will head into Munich, as well as into neighbouring Austria and Switzerland.
