(Boise, Idaho) June 4, 2008 – Boise based Stratus Global Partners (SGP) will add an office in Tel Aviv this summer to begin work with high tech companies in Israel according to the company’s President, Jay Longwell.
“Our recent client meetings in three European countries, including Israel, have netted Stratus significant new business and the opportunity to open a permanent office in Tel Aviv to serve our clients in that country and throughout the continent,” Longwell said.
Longwell cited increased interest in SGP’s marketing services model by foreign companies looking to launch in North America – as well as the weak dollar — as key reasons for their recent surge in offshore business.
According to the U.S. Trade Office, Israeli companies and U.S. companies do over $20 billion in trade per year. Longwell is confident that Stratus can bring some of that business to Idaho and, at the same time, offer our Idaho Department of Commerce opportunities to share contacts and expand Idaho trade of all kinds in this new market.
“We have been very pleased with the relationship we have started to develop with the Idaho Department of Commerce and Governor Butch Otter’s office. Both the Governor and his Commerce Department are strong advocates of opening foreign markets and we share their passion for reaching beyond our domestic borders,” Longwell added.
Stratus Global Partners is a Boise-based marketing services and human resources firm specializing in technology industries. Stratus focuses on delivering strategy, programs and people to a diverse list of tech companies, including HP, Microsoft, Philips, Intel and Fujistu-Seimens Computers.
