Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and Bob Rolfe, Department of Economic and Community Development commissioner, announced the relocation of the headquarters of tech firm Thnks from New York City to Williamson County on March 2.
“We’re known for our hospitality here in Tennessee, so I’m proud to welcome a company like Thnks to the Volunteer State,” the governor said in a release. “Thnks is a unique business with a mission to spread goodwill and gratitude in the workplace, and I look forward to a long-lasting partnership as the company grows its headquarters in Williamson County.”
Thnks, a gratitude-based web platform that allows users to send each other gifts and signs of appreciation in order to improve business relationships, is expected to create 50 new jobs over the next three years in engineering, sales, marketing, customer support and administration at its new Williamson County headquarters.
“We’re excited to partner with Williamson County and the State of Tennessee for this chapter in our growth,” CEO and co-founder Brendan Kamm said in a release. “Thnks’ mission fits seamlessly with Tennessee’s gracious and hardworking culture. With the combination of talent and business environment, we couldn’t have found a better location for our headquarters.”
