Escrow.com Moving U.S. Office from Southern California to San Francisco - Reports Other Major Changes

There have been a lot of changes at Escrow.com since the company was acquired by Australia's Freelancer.com last year. After expanding their management team and giving the company's website a major makeover, Escrow.com has also just announced major change in their physical location. They are moving their U.S. office from its long time home in Southern California (in Orange County, southeast of Los Angeles) to downtown San Francisco where Vice President of Sales Danny Raja will head the office. 

Danny joined Escrow.com in April after serving as a Senior Sales Executive at both Box and Yammer. General Manager Jackson Elsegood and Keith Gettle, who has been promoted to Operations Manager, will be working closely with Danny on Escrow.comís major partnerships. Their new San Francisco office at 180 Montgomery Street is one of four new Escrow.com offices with others located in Vancouver, Canada, Sydney, Australia and Manila, in the Philippines.

Escrow.com added that those changes helped the company pass 1 million registered users this year. Gross payment volume for Escrow.com in 2015 exceeded US $430 million, growing at almost double the five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR), with total payment volume to date reaching US $2.9 billion.
