Anvil has several clients in Toronto and New York and needed a presence in the North American time zone to service new and existing customers, as well as playing a pivotal role between the global 24 by 7 support operations run from the London and Sydney offices. Dave Woodcock, a senior consultant, who is heading up the new office in Toronto, has been with Anvil for over four years and has a wealth of technical and local financial markets knowledge.
Dave Woodcock said, "This is an exciting opportunity for myself and for Anvil. I have been working in Toronto and New York for the past two and half years, and have been keen to move to North America on a more permanent basis. Anvil has been planning to have a presence in North America for some time, and the Toronto office will be the first step towards this – it’s a great location to start an office. This will be a personal challenge, but there are fantastic resources in Toronto and I am confident that Toronto will become a key part of Anvil’s global operation."
Joe Nicholson, Managing Director of Anvil commented, "I am delighted about the new Canadian office. We plan to grow the office along the same lines as our successful offices in Sydney and Malta, enabling us not only to service local sales, support and development requirements, but also participate in the global development of all our products and services."
