Slalom currently has 19 full-time employees at a coworking space in Columbus. As a fast-growing company whose clients include many Fortune 500 companies, a new office will allow Slalom to serve growing demand in the state.
“Even during these uncertain times, we are excited about the opportunity here in Columbus. Columbus offers a broad range of great companies and organizations, including 17 Fortune 1000 companies, the state government and more than 50 college campuses in the region. With the combination of a tremendous talent pool and strong client prospects, we’re planning to build, not just for the next five to ten years, but for 20-plus years into the future.” – Channie Mize, general manager, Slalom Columbus
Slalom plans to relocate from its current coworking space in Columbus and into the company’s first office in Ohio. The company will benefit from the state’s talent pool and proximity to major large companies in Columbus, as well as in Cleveland and Cincinnati. Ohio has the fifth-largest number of Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 company headquarters in the nation, Slalom’s target customer base.
