Rise Interactive Expands Operations Center In Chicago’s Loop District

Rise Interactive, a digital marketing and analytics agency, expanded its operations and office complex on the third and fourth floors at 1 S. Wacker Drive in the Loop District in Chicago, Illinois.

The agency's office space is more than double its previous size, and is now able to accommodate the more than 250 employees that the company plans to add within the next five year, according to company officials. As a result of Rise's continued growth and success, Rise's 130-person office now encompasses almost 40,000 square feet. In addition to its planned employee growth, Rise projects nearly $60 million in gross revenue this year, up from $40 million in 2014 and $31 million in 2013.

"I'm excited to say that we've built one of the coolest offices in Chicago, but that's not why I'm proud. I'm proud because we've built a remarkable team that is growing. I'm proud because we're delivering results for our clients and we're making a big impact," said Jon Morris, Founder/CEO of Rise Interactive.

The expansion includes a state of the art multi-purpose event space, a training and development facility, an internal staircase joining the agency's two floors, and creative collaboration spaces throughout the entire office, company officials said.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel noted Chicago needs companies like Rise. He said, "Rise Interactive is one great example of the type of home-grown technology companies that are helping to grow Chicago's 21st-century economy."
