Tempe Gets a Monster Addition; Monster Opens Western 'Hub' in Tempe
MAYNARD, Mass., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Monster(R), the leading global online careers property and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide (Nasdaq: MNST), is expanding its U.S. operations and has opened a western "hub" in Tempe, Arizona. The Tempe office, dubbed Monster West, will be the company's first fully operational facility in the western United States and the largest operation outside of Monster's headquarters in Maynard, Mass. Expansion into the Southwest region will help Monster better meet the needs of its fast-growing customer base. Further growing the company's domestic footprint enables Monster to better serve Enterprise businesses in the Western half of the U.S. while raising the company's visibility among small and medium-sized businesses at the local level. "Monster is an expanding, fast-paced and energetic corporation, and the Tempe area mirrors this," said Tom Beswick, vice president, Monster West. "As one of the fastest growing regions in the Southwest, Tempe has a unique combination of a talented workforce, tech-centric business environment, and educational excellence with facilities such as Arizona State University." Ninety employees are currently staffing Monster's new office. Monster expects to fill 170 additional positions by year-end. Positions vary from entry level to senior management. Beswick says this office will be Monster's western "footprint" and will include many of the company's operations. As the first tenant of the new Rio Salado Business Park, Monster's nearly $2 million, 40,000 square foot facility utilized several Tempe area businesses to bring the facility to life. Phoenix Design One, Jokake Construction and Bootz & Duke Sign Company are among the many local employers whose workmanship helped create Monster's unique facility and implement its "business social environment," complete with the Monster Den, a unique and multifunctional meeting space that encourages creativity and collaboration. "Monster is a growing, hip company and the leader in its industry. We're thrilled Monster has chosen Tempe to establish a base of operations for the western U.S.," said Renee Lopata, senior vice president of the Tempe Chamber of Commerce. "Monster has blazed a trail in the technology and employment industry and we hope this firmly establishes Tempe as a perfect place for companies to grow." While new to the neighborhood, Monster has been a supporter of several community organizations over the past year, including the Tempe Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, Arizona State University, and most recently the Rio Salado Foundation.
