Concurrent with the move from offices in Irvine, Calif., to more spacious facilities at 1221 2nd Ave. in Seattle’s financial district, Flowroute has appointed a veteran executive as its chief legal counsel and filled four other key positions. The company is looking to fill additional positions for developers, sales and support staff, and creative roles in the marketing department.

“Beyond business reasons, we all really like Seattle,” he added. “The lifestyle is easy. It’s beautiful here. Hiking, biking and boarding, we’re into it all. Having that balance is very important to us as an organization and as individuals.”
