Brooklyn is set to welcome a Facebook Marketing Partner, as Falcon Social announced the relocation of its North American headquarters from Manhattan to Williamsburg.

Falcon Social was founded in 2010, and the social media management software company moved into its current headquarters at 401 Broadway last year.

The company closed a $16 million series-B funding round earlier this year, bringing its total financing to date to $25.33 million, and Falcon Social said it closed out the first quarter of 2015 with revenue growth of 25 percent and a 20 percent staff increase.

Founder and CEO Ulrik Bo Larsen said in a release announcing the move to Brooklyn:

We closed 2014 with 443 percent revenue growth and a 63 percent hike in staff, and that was before we raised the new funding. We are now concentrating on talent acquisition, especially in New York, where we are substantially growing our presence, starting with our marketing, sales and customer success teams.

We’re moving into a wonderful space that will be customized for our current needs and will be scalable to accommodate our future growth. We also feel that Williamsburg is a great fit for the Falcon Social brand: up-and-coming, fresh and packed with ideas.
