Auburn, WA (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
Zones, Inc., a leading provider of technology solutions for business, healthcare, public sector and other vertical markets, has announced the opening of a new sales office located in Chicago’s historical Willis Tower. The new office will allow Zones to better serve customers in the Chicago region and throughout the Midwest, and will bring more than 100 new jobs to the area.
The new office will be located on the 36th floor of the Willis Tower, one of Chicago’s most famous landmarks, and will provide numerous options for expansion. The initial space will host approximately 90 Zones account executives in addition to associated management and support personnel, training facilities and space for vendors. The new office will be dedicated to support of state, local and education (SLED) and corporate customers. Zones recently expanded its warehouse and logistics capabilities in the area, opening a 151,000 square foot distribution center in nearby Carol Stream, Ill. This new facility has already brought about 100 jobs to the area, and is expected to produce more than 30 additional jobs in the coming year.
Jim Grass, vice president of public sector, will lead the opening of the office. “Zones is known for its deep commitment to customer satisfaction, and this expansion underscores our dedication to our customers throughout the Midwest and beyond,” said Grass. “To staff Zones’ new offices, we are engaged with local college campuses to recruit new talent. Zones will be present at upcoming job fairs at both DeVry and DePaul Universities. We are looking forward to bringing more jobs to the area, and feel Chicago is a natural next step to better serve a large number of our government and education customers.”
Grass has a deep history of sales in the public sector, which includes working in sales for CDW for 17 years, during four of which he lead the State and Local Sales Division. At Zones, Grass is tasked with enhancing the Public Sector program – an important growth market for the company as state agencies seek to invest in technology to comply with mandates, increase productivity, and better support their communities.
