Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
Perhaps it’s fitting for a company born and based in Phoenix to use a fire at its office as a catalyst to move and improve its offices. Kolbe Corp, which has been based in the Arcadia neighborhood since its founding, is moving to the Biltmore area this winter.
“The fire made us choose – rebuild the office we had or create something new,” said David Kolbe, CEO. “We wanted to expand our meeting and collaboration spaces so we could do more consulting and training at our offices so the decision was pretty easy. We’re also adding space and tech capability to do more teleconferencing and web-delivered sessions with our international clients.”
The new office, located at 2355 E. Camelback, will include an additional conference room, upgraded interiors and newly designed “huddle rooms” that allow increased collaboration and will be equipped with video conferencing capabilities to better serve Kolbe’s national and international clientele.
“The excitement of having a new office for the first time in over 15 years has been great for the company. That’s been important in the wake of the fire. Even though nobody was hurt, it’s sad to see the place you spent so much time turned to ashes and pictures of your kids covered with soot,” said Amy Bruske, Chief Productivity Officer. “We’ve had great growth over the past couple of years and we want to add space for our expanding staff, our local and regional clients, and technology for our national and international business.”
In addition to the move, the company currently has plans to expand the team by 10% over the next quarter.
