LITTLE ROCK - Software company Elyxor said Tuesday it will add 45 employees at a new office space it recently moved into in North Little Rock’s Argenta District.

The expansion will bring the company’s workforce at its North Little Rock office to 49 employees.

“Elyxor could have chosen any state for this expansion and decided Arkansas has a talented workforce to meet the needs of these high-tech positions,” Gov. Asa Hutchinson said in a statement.

“In addition to talent needed to support Elyxor’s rapid growth, Central Arkansas also provides access to entrepreneurial entities such as the Arkansas Venture Center and the Innovation Hub. We appreciate the company’s significant investment in the citizens of our great state,” he said.

Mark Carleo, managing partner at Elyxor, said, “As Elyxor has grown as a firm, we have been seeking a location where we can build a strong relationship with the local business community and find great talent. We hired our first engineer in Little Rock in 2014, and we have been growing ever since.”

Founded in 2010 in Boston, Elyxor provides access to experienced strategy and software experts who are literate in emerging technologies, turning strategies into real products, and establishing processes to link the value chain from concept to production.
