Plexxi Named 2017 New Hampshire Innovator

We’re thrilled to report that Plexxi was selected by the New Hampshire Union Leader as one of 12 New Hampshire Innovators!

At Plexxi, New Hampshire holds a special place in our hearts, not only for the unmatched quality of life it offers, but also for its innovative and booming community. Opportunities for business growth are far and wide, with close proximity to Massachusetts’ technology ecosystem, low unemployment rates and over 2,000 quality tech job openings – the state is ripe with opportunity. And, we have been fortunate to find extremely talented people to work at Plexxi that share our vision and drive to improve businesses through the use of technology. Our CEO Rich Napolitano describes what first attracted him to Nashua in Plexxi’s innovator profile:

“When the Plexxi opportunity came about, New Hampshire and its business and work climate were top of mind,” Napolitano said. “Shortly after I became CEO, we consolidated our Cambridge and San Francisco offices and moved our headquarters to Nashua, which offered a great workspace, great location for attracting talent and close proximity to Mass hightech.”
