BELLEVUE, Wash. (PRWEB) November 14, 2018
Guidant Financial, a leader in small business financing, is expanding its footprint in the Pacific Northwest with the opening of a new office in Boise, Idaho. The company’s strong growth and the tightening labor market in the Greater Seattle area gave Guidant the impetus to further its expansion in a new market with a second office location. Guidant will be celebrating the opening of the new office on Pinnacle Square off W Emerald St in Boise, scheduled to open on Jan 7th.
“We have helped over 20,000 entrepreneurs go into business for themselves and work every day to increase the number that succeed. We believe that having a second location in Boise will help broaden our impact. The city represents an opportunity to access another strong talent pool and provide a great quality of life for our team while creating additional jobs and developing more future entrepreneurs. We are excited to tap into its vibrant business community,” says David Nilssen, CEO of Guidant Financial. “With a second headquarters in Boise, we’re well positioned for more exciting growth.”
Mayor Dave Bieter added, “I’m pleased to welcome Guidant Financial to Boise. By bringing 100 new jobs to our city they are creating even more economic opportunity for our citizens.”
The new Boise office will be led by Jeremy Ames, president and co-founder of Guidant Financial. The office is located at 9196 W. Emerald, Boise 83704, and it is anticipated that nearly 100 employees will be working in the new office in the next 2-3 years. New employees will work in sales, customer service, administration, and other areas.
According to Ames, “Boise is an excellent choice for Guidant for many reasons. One key factor for us is how the city is known for having and valuing a tight-knit community. Community is one of Guidant’s core values. We wanted to choose a location where we felt we could provide a great employee experience and make a meaningful impact to the local area.”

Guidant is committed to helping people succeed in small business, from helping first-time business owners identify and secure the right financing to investing in technology and providing a continuum of services to customers through the life of their business.
