Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ININ), a global provider of software and services designed to improve the customer experience, will be participating in the State of Indiana's 2013 jobs and investment delegation to Japan Sept. 5-14.
This is the first gubernatorial overseas economic development and jobs mission to Japan led by Indiana Governor Mike Pence. Attending the delegation will be Interactive Intelligence senior executives Gary Blough, Roger Reeves, and Keith Martin.
“Since our founding in Indianapolis in 1994 we’ve had many years to develop close customer relationships with companies around the globe, including world-class Japanese brands such as Bridgestone, Canon, Shinsei Bank, Sony, Yamaha, and many others,” said Interactive Intelligence Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales Gary Blough. “We look forward to meeting with leading Japanese business executives during this delegation to better understand their unique needs for the benefit of citizens from both our regions.”
Interactive Intelligence’s global offices include a regional sales and support office in Tokyo, which opened in 1998.
Interactive Intelligence employs a total of more than 1,500 people and reported 2012 revenues of $237 million. Its Indianapolis headquarters occupy 300,000 square feet spanning four buildings. Based on its growth and investment in the community, the company was honored by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce with its “Best Places to Work in Indiana” award, and was ranked second by the Indianapolis Business Journal on its “Largest Indianapolis-Area Software Developers” list.
In 2012 Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels honored Interactive Intelligence Founder and CEO Dr. Donald E. Brown with the Sagamore of the Wabash award, an annual award that pays tribute to an individual who has made a significant contribution to life in the Hoosier state.
“Our successful track record is a testament to Indiana as a place that fosters all types of business, including the high-tech industry,” Blough said. “In particular, our Indiana location has enabled us to recruit and retain an amazing staff of loyal, hard-working and passionate individuals who have made our success possible.”
