Social Tables (www.socialtables.com), the award-winning event planning technology company that serves thousands of event professionals nationwide, increased its headcount 45% from 15 to 22 over the past month.
This announcement comes on the heels of a $1.6M round funding, which was slated for strategic hires, market expansion, and development of the company’s next-generation hospitality platform. “It’s really exciting to be a small part of the second coming of DC Tech,” said Dan Berger, the company’s Chairman and CEO. “DC is full of highly driven, young professionals who realize that building a company is not only an invaluable opportunity but also the best way to develop professionally.”
All 7 of the new Social Tables hires are from the DC area, making a total of 9 employees originally from the area and 20 that currently live near headquarters in downtown DC. Social Tables shows it’s strong roots in DC as the average number of years employees have lived in the area is 10 years. “I'm really excited about the potential of the DC startup scene to bring about disruptive and beneficial change,” said the latest addition to the engineering team, Matthew Whittemore, “and as I learned about Social Tables it was obvious that this potential was a reality for the whole team.”
New hires come with deep industry experience including Saber Hospitality, DC-based Avalon Catering, the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, Marriott International and Cvent. For more information on Social Tables or job opportunities, please visit http://www.socialtables.com/.
