Carter Glass Building in Lynchburg becoming home to software company

CloudFit Software has announced its new headquarters will be in the historic Carter Glass Building in downtown Lynchburg

The announcement was made Friday morning with the City of Lynchburg and the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance.

According to a release, CloudFit Software was founded in March 2018 by a group of cloud pioneers from Microsoft, including their co-founder and CTO who grew up in Pittsylvania County and refers to Lynchburg as his home city. CloudFit Software is a Microsoft partner that serves Fortune 500 and Department of Defense customers from Lynchburg.

“The City of Lynchburg and Economic Development Authority is thrilled that CloudFit has chosen Lynchburg as the home for its international cloud computing and software development operations,” said Marjette Upshur, Director of Economic Development and Tourism for the City of Lynchburg. “Our office has been working with CloudFit’s founders closely for more than a year to make this announcement a reality. The redevelopment of the historically significant Carter Glass building, anchoring Lynchburg’s iconic Monument Terrace, into a state of the art headquarters for 21st century computing speaks to the strength, diversity and positive trajectory of Lynchburg’s business community.”

CloudFit Software has employees in 16 states, but since 2018, the company has operated in the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance incubator.
