TechCXO®, a leading provider of C-Suite-level strategic and functional consulting services for technology companies, is opening an office in Charleston. Veteran sales and marketing executive Jack Liles will lead its efforts.
Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Atlanta, GA, TechCXO has helped more than 600 tech companies at every stage of their growth, development and transition including concept and early-stage tech companies – for whom they advised on more than $3 billion in transactions – to late-stage and mature technology companies.
TechCXO has engaged with Charleston tech companies including BoomTown, PeopleMatter and PokitDok. In 2014, the firm advised BoomTown, a software company that creates online marketing solutions for real estate professionals, on a $20 million Series A Round of funding. In September 2015, TechCXO assisted PokItDok, an API provider for the healthcare industry, on a $34 million Series B capital raise.
“TechCXO is proud to have assisted some of Charleston’s best-known and most successful tech companies. Silicon Harbor may be a surprise to others around the country, but we were here early and plan to stay,” said Kent Elmer, TechCXO’s Managing Partner.
“The recipe in Charleston is right. We have 200-plus promising early and mid-stage companies, committed investors and a young, creative base of professionals. My job is to help these firms market, sell and scale,” said TechCXO partner Jack Liles. “I was drawn to TechCXO because of their success in this market, the quality of their professionals, and my belief that the model of providing high quality C-Suite-level support suits Charleston well.”
