SocialChorus, a San Francisco, CA-based global workforce communications platform, secured $12.5m in growth financing.
The round was co-led by Arrowroot Capital and Kohlberg Ventures, with participation from Western Technology Investment.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.
Led by Gary Nakamura, CEO, SocialChorus provides a workforce communications platform to enterprise customers including USAA, Phillips 66, Cargill, Sound Physicians, American Cancer Society, Kohler Co., Lendlease, Lloyds Bank, TD Bank, PG&E and Lincoln Financial Group.
The company’s platform allows employees to stay connected and get the news and information they need to feel informed. Additionally, SocialChorus’ Program Studio gives communicators the ability to aggregate both internal and external sources of news and information such as video, articles, links, notes and images, and systematically plan and program distribution across an enterprise’s multiple channels including SharePoint, Slack and Workplace by Facebook.
To support company growth, SocialChorus has also opened a London office and made several hires, including Cyrus Gilbert-Rolfe as managing director, EMEA; Dave Lutz as vice president of client strategy and success; and Alison Murdock as chief marketing officer.
