New York – September 26, 2013 – Ipreo, a leading global provider of market intelligence and workflow solutions to capital markets and corporate professionals, will hold a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new office in Raleigh, North Carolina, on October 3, 2013 at 10:00 AM. The Governor of North Carolina, Pat McCrory, and the Mayor of Raleigh, Nancy McFarlane, along with Ipreo’s senior executives, are scheduled to give remarks and help cut the ribbon at the ceremony.
Ipreo announced its plans to open a significant operation in downtown Raleigh in April of this year. It began recruiting and operating almost immediately from temporary space in the Bank of America building at 421 Fayetteville Street, where the company’s permanent office space is located.
“The warm welcome we have received in North Carolina and the speed at which we’ve been able to staff the Raleigh operation have far exceeded our expectations,” said Scott Ganeles, CEO of Ipreo. “We look forward to many years of growth and success in North Carolina’s Research Triangle.”
Through a combination of relocation and recruitment, the company has already surpassed the 100 mark for permanent Raleigh-based employees, toward a goal of 150 people on the ground by the end of year one, with an estimated employee base growing to 250 over the next few years.
Members of the news media are invited to attend the grand opening ceremony at 421 Fayetteville Street, Suite 900. Please plan to arrive between 9:30 and 9:45 AM, and show press credentials upon arrival. Following the close of the formal ceremony, members of Ipreo’s executive team will be available to answer questions in a closed news conference, after which members of the media will be invited to tour Ipreo’s newly built offices. Photos and video will be permitted.
