GATESMAN HQ ON THE MOVE: RELOCATION PLANS UNVEILED
New Downtown Pittsburgh Digs to Accommodate Agency’s Accelerated Growth
PITTSBURGH – Oct. 3, 2017 – Gatesman, one of the fastest-growing, mid-size, privately owned agencies in the U.S., is relocating its flagship office to Four Gateway Center in downtown Pittsburgh to accommodate the company’s accelerated growth. The move is tentatively set for April 2018.
The new and expanded 14,000 sq. ft. office space will be located on the 7th floor of Four Gateway Center, a high-rise building in the heart of downtown. The interior space will be completely redesigned by GBBN architects. The open floor plan will facilitate even more collaboration among the agency’s disciplines, reflective of the agency’s integrated model to approaching clients’ business challenges.
The decision to relocate the agency’s headquarters follows its rapid increase in size and revenue following the acquisition of Noble Communications, an award-winning, 49-year-old marketing communications firm in the Midwest.
“Our move downtown is a testament to our continued momentum of industry-leading growth and our unwavering commitment to delivering clients with bigger, bolder and better solutions,” said John Gatesman, CEO, Gatesman. “Pittsburgh has always been our first home. Our new downtown digs will provide expanded settings for collaboration, more space to accommodate our hunger to grow and an even bigger opportunity to further engrain ourselves in the future of our evolving city.”
For the past ten consecutive years, Gatesman has been ranked one of Western Pennsylvania’s Best Places to Work, attracting the best and the brightest of Pittsburgh’s creative thinkers, doers and leaders. Gatesman opened its doors in 2006 and quickly became one of Pittsburgh’s fastest-growing companies. Relocating to South Side Works in 2012, the company has been one of the most awarded mid-size agencies for its work in advertising, public relations and social media.
After the July 2017 acquisition of Noble Communications, Pittsburgh-based Gatesman grew to more than 125 employees and expanded to two additional offices in Chicago and Springfield, Mo. The acquisition increased the agency’s depth of expertise in new and existing areas with combined talent from both organizations, and added new and complementary capabilities to even better serve regional, national and international clients.
Gatesman is one of the fastest-growing, mid-size, privately owned agencies in the U.S. With offices in Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Springfield, Mo., Gatesman is a fully integrated, independent marketing communications agency with expertise in strategy/branding, advertising, digital, public relations, social media, media planning and buying, and insights/analytics. Gatesman is a partner in AMIN Worldwide, an alliance of over 50 independent marketing agencies, and IPREX, a global communications network. Gatesman acquired Quest Fore in 2014 and Noble Communications in 2017.
