Tuesday, May 17, 2016

​Automark Solutions, LLC has announced plans to relocate its existing corporate headquarters from McLean to Reflections III, 208 Golden Oak Court in Virginia Beach, to expand operations and add 35 new full-time jobs in the city. The industry-leading software company servies the automotive and related industries focusing on ecommerce marketplaces. 

The company was founded in 2012 and has been optimizing manufacturer, auto dealer, ad agency and media companies' websites for lead generation utilizing a suite of uniquely developed conversion tools. Automark Solutions, LLC currently has 11 employees, and the expansion will triple its workforce over the next 36 months. The new jobs will have average annual salaries of $40,000 in management, customer service, software developers and administrative support. 

The Virginia Beach Development Authority has awarded Automark Solutions, LLC an Economic Development Investment Program grant in the amount of $45,000 based on the number of jobs created. The company will also make a $35,000 capital investment for the expansion. 

"Not only is Automark Solutions preparing for explosive growth in serving the automotive industry, but we're excited that our growth enabled us to expand our operations and proudly call Virginia Beach home to our corporate headquarters," said Ken Lees, vice president and partner. "While there were several geographical options that made sense, none provided the quality of life benefits that Virginia Beach offers that are very important to our existing employees and hopefully will translate to attracting those we plan to hire in the coming months."

"This relocation is significant because it brings another very successful technology corporate headquarters to Virginia Beach," said Virginia Beach Economic Development Director Warren D. Harris. "We also appreciate Automark Solution's value in the marketplace to support the growth and sales of other businesses as well in the city and beyond."

Automark Solutions, LLC has more than 300 customers and has been awarded the Automotive Website Awards highly-coveted Top Website Merchandising Tools award. Additionally, in a recently completed IHS Lead Quality Analysis, the company had the highest industry buy rates of more than 47 percent.
