Red Touch Media, the technology company behind the fastest-growing digital media content management platform in the entertainment industry, is proud to announce the expansion of its office headquarters in Salt Lake City, adding 5,000 square feet to the office's footprint.

As part of Red Touch Media's expansion strategy, the company has increased its employee base by 60% since 2012 and anticipates a continued growth of 18% directly sourced from the Salt Lake City economy. New hires add a range of skills to the company across its marketing, sales, software development and business development departments, with varying backgrounds and expertise in the technology, media and entertainment industries. Additionally, Red Touch Media recently added two new advisory board members, Simon Wright (former CEO, Virgin Entertainment Group) and Jesse Redniss (Former Senior Vice President, USA Networks).

"The expansion of our office and headquarters staff marks an important milestone for Red Touch Media," said Wayne Scholes, CEO and Chairman of Red Touch Media. "Our company has grown rapidly but with the enhancement of our resources, we are able to take our growth to the next level and more importantly, better service our clients. That's why Salt Lake City is the ideal locale for us, with the added bonus of being a major technology hub and home to a diverse and talented pool of people ready for hire."

Red Touch Media encourages a company culture that is funky, collaborative and fun-spirited, while maintaining dedicated focus. The Salt Lake City offices are dog friendly with company scooters on hand for employees to liven up their mode of travel around the office.  The playful, youthful office environment includes areas to organically congregate for meetings or brainstorms and is wired for connection to satellite offices and entertainment of all sorts.

Most integral to the Red Touch Media success strategy is its dedicated employee force. The company strives to offer a creative, nurturing and flexible work environment that fosters its most important asset – its' employees.
