VMware has moved its national headquarters to Sydney, Australia, relocating about 200 employees, including Asia Pacific-focused staff, to the new head office, according to it News.

Duncan Bennet, A/NZ vice-president and managing director at VMware, said several R&D groups will still work from its North Sydney office.

Bennet said VMware’s more than 8,000 customers around Australia include 98 percent of the ASX 100 and “most” of federal and state government agencies.

Bennet said the company has grown its workforce to more than 300 employees in its seven years of operation. “…so we’ve been either the fastest or one of the fastest information technology companies ever.”

Greg Pearce, NSW minister for Finance and Services, said he looks forward to seeing VMware’s growth “double and triple over the years.”
