UK consultant Gleeds has launched its eighth US office, in Austin, Texas, the latest in a string of openings across the country and joins existing locations in Atlanta, Charlotte, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville, New York and San Francisco.
Chris Soffe, CEO of Gleeds Americas, said: "Known as the ‘lone star state’ the $1.6 trillion economy in Texas is one of the strongest in the US, second only to California, so it was a natural step for us to extend our offering here."
Richard Steer, Chairman of Gleeds Worldwide, added: "Over 100 of the country’s top companies call Texas home and we’ve built fantastic relationships with many of them, so we’re confident that this will be a successful move for Gleeds. This is a really exciting time for the region and we intend to maximise the opportunity it presents."
The team in Austin has already been appointed to undertake a number of dispute advisory contracts, as well as several hospitality schemes and a large retail development.
The Austin office will be headed up by directors Ruben Rodriguez and Chris Williams. It can be found at 600 Congress Avenue, 14th Floor, Austin, TX 78701.
