Dallas-headquartered strategy and technology consulting firm Pariveda Solutions has opened its first Canadian location, with an office in Toronto.

Toronto, with its fast-growing pool of high-tech companies and talent, was a natural choice for international expansion for Pariveda.

A recent study from CBRE found that Toronto has added the second-most tech jobs in North America in the past five years, trailing only the San Francisco Bay Area. Toronto was also ranked third in the study for top tech talent markets, with the Bay Area and Seattle ranking first and second.

Huge tech-labour demand has spilled over into smaller nearby markets as well, with Hamilton and Waterloo booking gains of 52% and 40%, respectively, in tech jobs over the last five years.

"A great world city in its own right, Toronto will be a wonderful opportunity for Pariveda to solve clients' pressing business challenges and impact the local Toronto community," Bruce Ballengee, Pariveda CEO and founder, said.

According to a release from the firm, Toronto’s diverse tech talent pool and world-class universities and research centers make the city an optimal destination for international companies, including Pariveda.

Founded in 2003 and based in Dallas, the consulting firm has grown to encompass 10 offices across the United States. Pariveda delivers strategic consulting services, as well as custom technology solutions in cloud, data, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, customer relationship management, and enterprise resource planning.

Pariveda has tapped Dbrav Dunkley, VP of emerging markets, to head the consultancy’s first international location. "Delivering strategic change with leaders of innovation will positively impact the community," said Dunkley. "I'm looking forward to partnering with new and existing clients here in Toronto."
