When the revitalization project of Park Central Mall opened for leasing a few weeks ago, digital business consultancy Nerdery saw it as an opportunity to move closer to the city’s new Innovation District and became the first business to sign a lease.
“We’re seeing tremendous growth opportunities in Phoenix as the city becomes another tech-centric hub on the West Coast,” says Adrian Slobin, CEO at Nerdery, which had established its presence in Phoenix out of shared office space. “By planting this headquarters in the heart of the city’s tech area, we will be able to attract stronger talent and better serve our growing portfolio of west region clients.” Nerdery focuses on crafting impactful digital experiences and infrastructures to help clients accelerate digital transformations, innovations, modernizations and operational initiatives. The company’s other offices are in Minneapolis and Chicago.
Nerdery’s new office will feature an array of innovative technology, a staple in its offices throughout the country, such as a digital receptionist that will greet associates and clients as they enter. The mall, which is being revitalized to make room for Phoenix’s influx of innovative companies, is within a tech-focused area encompassing the east side of Downtown Phoenix and the historic Warehouse District that was recently designated Phoenix Core.
