TAMPA — Data quality and compliance company Validity Inc., has opened a new hub in Tampa with plans to hire 75 local employees in sales and marketing by the end of the year.

"We are thrilled to join Tampa's burgeoning tech hub of high growth companies," Validity executive vice president of sales and marketing Don Williams said in an announcement released through the nonprofit Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corp.

The EDC connected Validity to resources for workforce training grants, but said no state or local incentives were involved in the company's expansion to a 23,000-square-foot office in the One MetroCenter building, 4010 Boy Scout Blvd., in the MetWest International mixed-use development.

Validity is based in Boston and also has offices in London and Toronto. Its business revolves around providing data tools and products designed to help business and organizations develop leads, close deals and plan for growth, as well as handle tasks related to certification and compliance issues.

EDC officials say Validity is the latest tech-focused firm to move to or expand in Hillsborough County, following companies like the Vendita Technology Group, Revature, and the Frank Recruitment Group.
