Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
CardLab, Inc., the leading provider of gift cards and incentive cards through the websites GiftCard.com and IncentiveCardLab.com, respectively signed a seven year lease in the Addison Com Center. Effective September 1st, the new CardLab headquarters will be located at 16650 Westgrove Drive, Addison, TX 75001. The Move Magicians, a full-service concierge moving company, is overseeing the relocation to provide a turn-key move. Lawrence Gardner with OMS Strategic Advisors acted as CardLab’s advisor and Joel Heydenburk with Jackson Walker LLP provided legal counsel.
The new headquarters is four times larger than the previous space in Dallas. “The move was necessary to accommodate our 100% growth last year as we are on track to grow another 100% in 2013,” said David Jones, CEO of CardLab, Inc. GiftCard.com was in the top 50 fastest growing e-retailers in 2012, on the list with Hulu, Pandora, Etsy, and Barnes & Noble. In addition to the 100% growth in revenue, CardLab doubled its staff in 2012, adding primarily to the marketing and customer service teams.
