Lucidchart announced the opening of its Asia Pacific headquarters in Melbourne, Australia. This is Lucidchart's second international office expansion, having opened an EMEA headquarters in Amsterdam at the end of 2018.

"We're excited to join the thriving tech scene in Melbourne," said Dave Grow, president and COO of Lucidchart. "We see a lot of great organic growth in APAC, and we believe that opening this office in Melbourne, a region that is continually producing and nurturing some of the best talent in tech, will provide us with the ideal resources to better serve and represent these customers."

Over the next five years, Lucidchart plans to hire over 100 new positions in Melbourne, specifically focused around sales, customer success and marketing, with the goal to better support and grow its already robust APAC user base of more than 3 million knowledge workers. Current customers in the region include Woolworths Supermarkets, LINE Corporation, Coupang, Flipkart and Xero Limited.

"We were delighted to support Lucidchart's move to Victoria, which will add considerable weight to our reputation as Australia's top tech city," said Victorian Minister for Economic Development Tim Pallas.
