NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe announced today that Thnks will relocate its corporate headquarters from New York City to Williamson County and create 50 jobs over the next three years.
Thnks provides a digital platform that enables enterprise teams to send gestures of appreciation that strengthen their business relationships and drive revenue growth. Users can send a Thnks— such as coffee for a busy week, a rideshare on a rainy day or chicken soup for someone under-the-weather— to shorten sales cycles, improve client relationships and engage employees. A Thnks can be sent instantly via SMS or email. The platform provides analytics, reporting and control features to ensure compliance with company policies as well as industry-specific regulations.
Thnks, a Loeb Enterprises portfolio company, intends to hire positions across engineering, customer support, sales, marketing and administration at its Williamson County based headquarters in the following months.
Since 2015, TNECD has supported 31 economic development projects in Williamson County, totaling nearly 5,000 jobs and $432 million in private capital investment.
