Chicago, June 21, 2016 – Rightpoint, a technology and design services company based in Chicago, announced today that it has expanded its corporate headquarters at 29 North Wacker Drive by more than 8,000 square feet, bringing the company’s total office space to more than 21,000 square feet. Rightpoint’s headquarters now occupies the building’s entire 4th floor and a majority of the 5th floor for a 10-year lease term.
The expansion at 29 North Wacker reflects the agency’s consistent and rapid growth since it was founded in 2007, including its recent acquisition of Boston-based Agency Oasis in April. The acquisition expanded Rightpoint’s presence from Chicago, Detroit and Denver to six new markets including Boston, Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, San Francisco and Dallas, and established it as a leading national digital agency.
The space expansion will also help to accommodate Rightpoint’s significant hiring, which includes more than 80 people since 2015, the majority of which are in Chicago. With 22 new hires to date in 2016, Rightpoint plans to hire more than 25 additional team members by the end of the year.
“We are thrilled to be continuing our positive growth trajectory, which is not only fueling our own expansion, but is also positively contributing to the job market and economy in Chicago and other cities in which we are present,” said Brad Schneider, co-founder of Rightpoint. “The surge in our hiring encompasses nearly every area of the company including Customer Experience Solutions, Productivity & Collaboration, CRM, Business Intelligence, Application development and Cloud Computing, which helps to advance our position as one of Chicago’s leading digital agencies.”For more information, visit www.rightpoint.com.
