Firm Veteran Kathryn Ciaralli to lead expansion efforts in Western U.S.
CHICAGO – August 20, 2013 – Rightpoint, Chicago's leading digital agency and technology consulting company, announced today that it is expanding its presence in the Western U.S. with a new office opening in Denver, Colorado.
Kathryn Ciaralli, who has led a team in Chicago for the past three years, will take on the new role as Rightpoint's Denver Office Leader, leading the firm's strategic expansion in this growing market. Already up and running with existing Denver-based clients including New Belgium Brewery and East West Resorts, Rightpoint plans to expand its business with Colorado and West Coast-based corporations. As the firm solidifies plans for its new office space, Rightpoint is already in the processing of adding account executives, project managers, technical consultants, application developers and other positions.
"Over the past few years, Denver's employment growth has exceeded that of the state and nation, and its economy has steadily rebounded making it the 18th largest metro economy in the United States. We feel strongly that Denver's growth and competitive landscape combined with Rightpoint's own suite of services and experience make this an ideal market for us to expand into at this time," said Brad Schneider, co-founder of Rightpoint.
"I am looking forward to this opportunity to play a strategic role in Rightpoint's expansion into the Western part of the U.S.," said Kathryn Ciaralli, Rightpoint Denver Office Leader. "Rightpoint's corporate culture, unique blend of services, and dedication to client satisfaction brings a different flavor of consulting to the Denver market that we hope will be refreshing. As the economy continues to improve, we will be well-positioned to help local companies leverage the latest business and technology trends so they can focus on growing their business."
Rightpoint's geographic expansion is a direct result of the company's tremendous growth in areas including a range of cloud services, CRM, application development, digital marketing, and web development services. Rightpoint's breadth of services and client base of over 150 companies, has led to nearly 125% revenue growth in the past two years and over 1,000% growth since it was founded in 2007. In the past six years, Rightpoint has also grown its employee base from two to more than 100 full-time consultants.
Rightpoint creates world-class digital solutions that drive profitable growth and sustainable competitive advantage. Driven by the firm's passion for pragmatic thinking, Rightpoint's business philosophy is to rethink the "typical" consulting model, combining attributes of management consulting, IT consulting, and creative agency services to help clients drive business results by solving strategic problems. Rightpoint's pervasive "intrapreneurial" spirit, which ensures that clients "get it right" the first time, is the foundation by which Rightpoint has built a strong, national reputation for excellence.
