Boomi, the intelligent connectivity and automation firm, is expanding its global presence and will be opening offices in Canada. Boomi will establish a Center of Excellence in Vancouver, British Columbia, to support strategic business functions like sales and business development.
In addition, Boomi also recently announced new executive appointments with global responsibilities that will be based in the region, including Chief Commercial Officer, Greg Wolfe; Chief Marketing Officer, Alison Biggan; Chief Strategy Officer, Rahim Bhatia; and Global Commercial Market Vice President, Troy Anderson, who will be leading the Vancouver office.
What does the expansion mean for the region?
As Boomi expands into Vancouver, the firm will tap into the highly skilled local workforce as it aims to immediately add 80 foundational team members and grow exponentially in the future months and years. The company expects to cause a near-term $20m impact in the local economy, with significant expansion over the next few years anticipating to exceed $100m.
“It is a pleasure to see top companies choosing Canada to expand their operations, and we welcome Boomi to Vancouver and the opportunities they bring to our tech industry,” said Hon. François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry.
“Canada is a destination of choice for investment by leading technology companies like Boomi. Their expansion is a testament to the work of Canada’s skilled tech talent and to the thriving digital technology ecosystem in Vancouver,” Hon. François-Philippe Champagne said.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Boomi to Vancouver as a member of our city’s rapidly expanding tech sector. Boomi’s decision to bring jobs and investment here further shows Vancouver growth as a global hub for technology and innovation,” said Vancouver Mayor Ken Sim.
“Boomi is a welcome addition to British Columbia’s thriving tech ecosystem. Tech is one of B.C.’s fastest-growing sectors, with over 11,000 companies employing more than 131,000 people,” said Hon Brenda Bailey, Minister of Jobs, Economic Development and Innovation.
“Our tech industry is at the heart of our StrongerBC Economic Plan, which includes a large expansion in tech education with 2,900 tech seats at post-secondary institutions producing 1,000 additional tech-grads a year. Boomi will provide a great opportunity for B.C.’s world class tech workers to enter the diverse field of intelligent integration and automation.”
What does the expansion mean for regional clients?
Boomi offers end-to-end intelligent automation solutions that enable modern, digital firms to accelerate business outcomes with the necessary speed, productivity, flexibility, and connectivity. The firm serves about 20,000 clients across over 70 countries, including globally recognized brands like AT&T, LinkedIn, Moderna, and Sky, and local Canadian partners and clients like Deloitte Canada, Canadian Pacific Railway, and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers.
“Deloitte has had an alliance with Boomi for over 5 years and has witnessed the company’s strong growth and expansion globally. We’re glad to see Boomi establishing a greater presence in Canada, to support this vital market,” said Morgan Arndt at Deloitte Canada.
“As businesses in Vancouver and beyond continue their digital transformation journeys, the need to intelligently connect and integrate their applications and data is greater than ever, and we’re proud to work with Boomi to bring these capabilities to Canada,” Arndt further said.
Boomi’s new Center of Excellence, to be located in downtown Vancouver, will leverage and expand upon its existing, home-grown executive talent in the region, who bring expertise from leading tech organizations like Crystal Decisions, Business Objects, SAP, and Google.

“This expansion is an exciting opportunity for Boomi to tap into the pool of talent in a vibrant and dynamic city that embraces innovation and technology,” said Boomi CEO, Steve Lucas.
“Having worked closely with many tech leaders in Vancouver, and with our commitment to providing industry-leading integration and automation solutions, we are eager to bring our expertise to Canada and contribute to the flourishing tech community in the region.”
This news follows two growth announcements from Boomi. The firm is doubling its current engineering and technical workforce as it opens a dedicated office in Bengaluru, India, and increased investment in Japan to meet growing global demand for its solutions.
As the pioneer of cloud-native integration platform as a service (iPaaS), Boomi celebrates the largest clientele among integration vendors; a community of over 100,000 members; and one of the largest arrays of global systems integrators (GSIs) in the iPaaS space.

Included on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ and Inc. 5000 lists as one of America’s fastest growing and most innovative technology companies, Boomi was recently named to Nucleus Research’s list of “Hot Companies to Watch in 2023.”
The firm has also won numerous awards, including its listing as one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces.
