Raising Arizona: UK networkers chase the sun

Cool Britannia not hot enough for London boys

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

It's been a hot and sticky summer for most of the UK over the last couple of months, but still not hot enough for some. Networking software company Cablesoft is turning its back on London and relocating to Arizona, claiming the warmer weather and a skilled workforce will boost its performance. Leaving behind a staff of four, the $40 million company has turned itself inside out to complete the move - the Arizona-based subsidiary company has been transformed Phoenix-like into the headquarters while the old HQ in London is now little more than a distribution hub. Cablesoft president and CEO, Pete Pela, said: "Looking at the international business community, we felt a move to the United States was imperative if our software development and sales were to attain their full potential." Not to mention getting your suntan up to its full potential as well, eh Pete? So it's 'My Old Man Said Follow The Van' for the four unlucky Cablesoft employees to be left behind in the Smoke and 'I've Been Through The Desert On A With No Name' for their erstwhile workmates. ®
