Global Technology and Services Firm Doubles Office Space in Midwest Location
SS&C Technologies (Nasdaq:SSNC), a global provider of financial services software and software-enabled services, today announced it has agreed to take on the lease of 8,600 square feet of new office space in downtown Evansville, Indiana, in addition to its current office location at Innovation Pointe.
The transaction will see the Windsor, Connecticut-headquartered technology firm taking up a total of 18,000 square feet between its two office locations, with an option to expand to a total of 24,000 square feet. The new office is located on 101 SE 3rd Street and SS&C takes possession of the space this month.
"This new lease consolidates our presence and accommodates future growth in the area. We've added approximately 100 employees since 2011 and our Evansville office services funds from all over the world," said Bill Stone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SS&C Technologies. "We are excited and appreciative the Evansville City Council has voted to help underwrite a downtown business hotel. We intend to continue building a world class operation and the infrastructure necessary includes business amenities and recreational opportunities. SS&C partners with local universities for recruitment planning and to support the development of curriculums to help the next generation of accounting talent secure world class education and careers."
The transaction is welcome news for the City of Evansville, where the Mayor of Evansville Lloyd Winnecke continues to attract businesses to invest in the revitalization project for downtown Evansville.
"The City is showing strong leadership by investing in its future," said Lloyd Winnecke, Mayor of Evansville. "A vibrant downtown plan is coming together and we are proving to investors that we believe in the economic viability of this key urban core area. We are transforming our downtown to be home to great economic growth and we invite other significant world class companies like SS&C to join us."
SS&C employs more than 4,000 employees worldwide with Evansville staff performing middle- and back-office functions as fund accounting and other operations. The deal for the additional Evansville office space will enable SS&C to ramp-up the hiring of new staff in the months to come.
