Concurrent is opening a Silicon Valley office, getting literally closer to the PC industry as it pursues a three-screen (TV, PC, handheld) strategy. 

"As we advance into the Web and wireless video markets, we believe an established presence in the heart of the U.S. technology corridor is vital for our continued success," said Dan Mondor, Concurrent’s president and CEO. "By establishing an on-the-ground presence in Silicon Valley, we will deepen our network within our identified growth markets and improve access to many of our top prospects in terms of both sales and partnership opportunities. This expansion reinforces our commitment to these organizations and to the fulfillment of our three-screen strategy."

The new office in San Jose, Calif., will serve as Concurrent's West Coast business development office and will be headed by Kevin Nicholas, director of business development and managed services.

Concurrent recently announced its expansion in Asia Pacific through the opening of its Hong Kong location, and the company has further plans to widen its business operations globally through channel partners and additional offices. Concurrent currently has offices in Atlanta; Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Cleveland; London; Hong Kong; Beijing; Paris; Munich, Germany; and Tokyo.
