NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fino, an IT consulting firm specializing in enterprise application design, development and consulting services, today announced that it has moved its headquarters to a newly designed and renovated 7,000 square foot space in one of Manhattan's premier locations. Situated off Fifth Avenue at 20 West 37th Street, the loft like office is characterized by its modern design and open floor plan.
"We had outgrown our space for some time and our new office provides a wonderfully fun work environment for our extraordinary team plus a welcoming space for our clients to visit and work. The new layout, including many of our own design elements, allows for greater team collaboration and continued delivery of excellent solutions and products to our clients," said Managing Director and Founder, Brian Fino. "Our new office is a stark contrast from our previously shared office suite of 4,000 square feet. We're very excited about our new home."
Fino's move caps off a year of extraordinary growth for the firm. In addition to physically expanding its office space, the company's revenue doubled in 2012, the third straight year of such growth. Fino also bolstered its team of executives and consultants, increasing headcount by over 40% in 2012. These hires include a new COO, Mindy Yang, formerly with a number of professional services firms, including Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, Ernst & Young and KPMG, plus Director of Business Development, Mark Eisenberg, who previously worked at Microsoft.
The firm also secured additional projects from leading Fortune 1000 companies and saw its applications win a coveted industry award. Fino was recognized for its outstanding work earlier in the year when its long-standing client, Hess Corp, one of the world's largest integrated energy companies, accepted the "CIO 100" award from CIO Magazine for products Fino designed exclusively for Hess. The award honors companies that demonstrate excellence and achievement in IT. Fino's innovative creation and design of a complex price optimization application currently used by Hess' energy sales force has, in many ways, transformed the business of sales and pricing for natural gas and energy.
The new office space will house the firm's team of over twenty architects, engineers, project managers and executives. It also features a library/lounge room, multiple skylights over the team's work area, a penthouse floor including a gym, shower, bar, plus exclusive access to a large rooftop terrace with remarkable views of Manhattan's skyline. Fino's new office is located at 20 West 37th Street, 12th Floor, New York, NY, 10018.
