EAB Consolidates-Expands Henrico County, Virginia, Operations

EAB, the leading provider of education research, technology, and marketing and enrollment solutions, will consolidate and expand its operations in Henrico County, Virginia. The $6 million project is expected to create more than 200 jobs over the next five years.

The firm plans to relocate from two locations on East Parham Road and consolidate its Richmond-based operations into a 70,000-square-foot space at the SunTrust Building on West Broad Street, according to state officials.

“EAB is deeply committed to the Richmond area, and we believe our long-term investment will serve Henrico County, the Greater Richmond community, and our growing employee base for many years to come,” said EAB President, Marketing and Enrollment Solutions, Chris Marett. “We are proud to have been recognized as one of the top workplaces in Richmond for each of the past six years, and providing a more flexible, hybrid workspace will strengthen our ability to attract and retain the local talent we need to continue helping our partner institutions meet the complex challenges facing the education sector.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the Henrico Economic Development Authority and the Greater Richmond Partnership (GRP) to secure the project for Virginia, with Governor Youngkin approving a $741,600 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Henrico County.

Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.

“EAB is a valuable employer in the Commonwealth, and we are pleased to support its growth and creation of 206 new jobs in Henrico County,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “The Greater Richmond region’s combination of world-class talent, stable business climate, competitive operating costs, and livability provides an ideal location for EAB to thrive, and we look forward to a continuing partnership.”

EAB works with more than 2,500 institutions to drive change through data-driven solutions. From kindergarten to college to career, the company partners with leaders and practitioners to accelerate progress and drive results across five major areas.

“We’re thrilled that EAB is expanding their operations in Henrico County and relocating to a new office space,” said Jennifer Wakefield, President and CEO of the Greater Richmond Partnership. “Technology companies like EAB and other office users find Henrico County and Greater Richmond to be the perfect mix of low business costs yet high quality of life for their employees.”
