Lev—formerly Levementum—announced Tuesday that the marketing technology consulting firm is moving its headquarters from Chandler, Arizona, to its current offices in Indianapolis.
Lev made the announcement at a ribbon cutting at its new 12,000-square-foot Indianapolis offices on the 10th floor of the Region’s Tower—211 N. Pennsylvania St. The company first established a presence in Indianapolis in 2016 and most recently maintained offices in The Union 525 building on the south side of downtown.
Lev officials also said the firm plans to hire 70 local employees this year, as part of its previously announced commitment in 2017 to add up to 175 jobs by 2022.
The company established a presence in Indianapolis in part to be close to tech marketing giant Salesforce, which recently became the signature tenant in the former Chase Tower and occupies several floors. Lev helps companies integrate Salesforce software into their businesses. It currently counts more than 100 employees across the country, 65 of which are located in central Indiana.
It’s not clear how many—if any—of Lev’s employees in Arizona or other locations would move to Indiana. Lev officials said they have room to grow at the new Indianapolis headquarters, which totals about 17,000 square feet with the addition 5,000 square feet it's currently subletting.
Michael Burton, who was named CEO in May 2018, was the first Lev employee located in Indianapolis. Since 2016, Lev has operated out of five different office spaces, moves that were motivated by the rapid growth of its local employee base.
“It’s exciting to finally move into our Indy home and continue to fulfill our promise to add up to 175 jobs in Indianapolis,” Burton said Tuesday.
Last April, Lev secured $4 million in growth capital. Burton told IBJ at the time that the company was ahead of its growth projections since the 2017 jobs announcement. In April, the company had 48 employees here.
The company decided to relocate its headquarters to Indianapolis to take advantage of the local workforce and the city's rapidly growing tech landscape, Burton said.
