BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 20, 2012) - Brand Networks, the leading provider of integrated social software solutions and services for the world's most Liked brands, today announced it is expanding operations to Toronto, Ontario. Headquartered in Boston, MA, with offices in New York, Rochester and Los Angeles, Brand Networks' expansion into the Greater Toronto Area will allow for accelerated hiring and growth in a market ripe with engineering talent.

"We've always realized that top engineering talent isn't limited to Silicon Valley," said Jamie Tedford, CEO, Brand Networks. "We've had amazing success building our technology hub in Rochester, New York by creating a talent pipeline from leading engineering programs at RIT and University of Rochester. The technology center of Canada's economy, Toronto is a natural progression for us as it is home to some of the best and brightest software engineers and mobile developers."
