EmailLabs opened a sales office in New York City. The new location will initially be staffed by Randy Levy, who has worked for DoubleClick, CheetahMail and Prism Communications; and Tuan Tran, a veteran of Globix, Telligent and Tyco.

“We’ve experienced strong growth over the past year, particularly with East Coast companies in the publishing, hospitality/travel and advertising/marketing industries,” said CEO Dave Sousa. “It makes sense for us to establish a presence in New York. This new office and expanded server capacity will help us serve our clients more effectively while we continue to pursue new business aggressively.”
