Kelley Connect Plans Flagship in Medford, Oregon
Once completed, the new facility will house the employees from the recent acquisitions as well as an anticipated 20% growth of local staff. A new demonstration studio and the opportunity to offer strategic professional partners office space drove the concept design of the building, company officials said.
"We're growing aggressively to meet the demand of our promise to become a full-service business technology company," said owner and CEO Aric Manion. "We continue to grow and use our network of offices to tackle challenges for companies large and small."
Led by the regional acquisitions of CORE Business Services and ABC Office, Kelley Connect said it is now 29 offices with 302 people across 5 states.
Manion added the technology-rich region was a tremendous factor in expansion decisions. "We've grown more than 625% in our IT and professional service divisions, and a huge part of that is the talent base in Medford and the surrounding area," he said. "We simply had to have a bigger presence here."
Scott Anderson, the founder of CORE and now Senior Vice President for Kelley Connect, is excited to continue growth in the area.
"We're excited to make a continued investment and to grow in this region," said Anderson.
"This regional headquarters gives us a better ability to connect both with our clients and the Kelley Connect broader team."
