RIESTER announced its move today to a more spacious and centrally situated building in the Phoenix-metro area. ‘RIESTER on Camelback’ is located at 3344 E. Camelback Road and marks a new era for the Firm that formerly operated for more than 18 years from two adjacent buildings in the Roosevelt Historic District.
RIESTER’s move was made possible by the tenacious commercial real estate work of Michael R. McQuaid of Newmark GrubbKnight Frank who found a roomier and more modern workspace for RIESTER to acquire in a market where no buildings that fit those requirements were listed for sale.
RIESTER is fast approaching the beginning of its third decade in business, founded by President and CEO, Tim Riester, who said this about the new location, “Entrepreneurship provides many memorable moments, but this has to be among our finest. We are incredibly excited to provide our clients and staff with this new, thought-provoking environment to create extremely effective advertising campaigns. We are ready for a productive inaugural week with an already booked calendar of meetings in our new ‘digs’ and we look forward to welcoming our clients and marketing industry partners!”
The Firm’s move was revealed digitally via a light-hearted video featuring a RIESTER-imagined character that transports the viewer from the previous address to 3344 E. Camelback Road.
RIESTER’s two-story building has prominent views of Piestewa Peak to the north and Camelback Mountain to the east. It showcases original artwork from RIESTER co-owner, Chief Creative Officer and artist Tom Ortega. The interior, designed by RIESTER co-owner and Chief Strategic Officer Mirja Riester with assistance from the architectural firm Krause Interiors, was constructed by Reliance Build, Inc. and features an area called Campaign Corner with walls and floors made of dry erase board material. There is a ThinkSpace furnished with a modern interpretation of a classroom size chalkboard. RIESTERcafe was fashioned as a social media real-time monitoring and rapid response environment. Research and development will continue to flow in RIESTER’s new Test Kitchen that was created for the Firm’s grocery products clients, as well as the reinvented Focus Group and Observation Rooms. There is a mini dog park for the Firm’s iconic visitors, a place for checking out RIESTER community bicycles and even a private exercise recovery room equipped with a spa-like shower. Images of the spaces will be revealed throughout the week on the RIESTER Facebook page.
