The Sun Never Sets at Newfire: Our 2020 Recap

2020 has been an unprecedented year. While there have been challenges, there have also been many highlights. Here are a few of ours:

Our footprint continues to grow

This year we officially rebranded to Newfire Global Partners, ensuring that our company name reflects our footprint. By year’s end, we opened several new offices in the EU, Eastern Europe, and the Americas, and look forward to two new offices in Asia come early 2021. And we continue to partner with customers across the globe to solve the world’s toughest problems.

With our expanded locations, our team has grown as well. We welcomed hundreds of new team members this year, increasing the dynamism and expertise of our family of professionals. We also expanded our services into new domains like Marketing Services and Product Management to create a full-suite offering for our partners.

Strong partnerships led to new opportunities

Many of our partners were resilient and innovative during times of change, giving us the opportunity to stretch and support them while also broadening our customer base. To navigate the journey ahead we hired our first Head of Growth, Greg Rosa.

Finding ways to give back

Donation rates have plummeted this year but the needs in our communities have only increased. We found small ways to give back by supporting the Ukrainian ambulance system and local Ukrainian orphanages.

Sometimes we found fun facts in the data

Do you know what fuels our Newfire team? Our developers may be the best in the biz… But first, coffee! Our team members drank almost 50,000 liters of coffee this year (almost enough to fill a backyard swimming pool), keeping themselves charged and energized to surpass our partner’s expectations.

Ending the year with reflection and hope

Nearly a year into the pandemic and rounding the corner into 2021, we’re reflecting on our commitments to growth, strong partnerships, and innovative excellence. We really look forward to accelerating those efforts in the year ahead.

Wherever you are, however you’re able to celebrate, we wish you a very happy New Year and a healthy, successful 2021.
