CHICAGO, April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Rise Interactive, a digital marketing and analytics agency in Chicago, has expanded its office at 1 S. Wacker Drive. The agency's office space is more than double its previous size, and is now able to accommodate the more than 250 employees Rise will add within the next five years.
As a result of Rise's continued growth and success, the agency has expanded on the third and fourth floors of the Chicago Loop location it moved to in 2012. Rise's 130-person office now encompasses almost 40,000 square feet. In addition to its planned employee growth, Rise projects nearly $60 million in gross revenue this year, up from $40 million in 2014 and $31 million in 2013.
"I'm excited to say that we've built one of the coolest offices in Chicago, but that's not why I'm proud. I'm proud because we've built a remarkable team that is growing. I'm proud because we're delivering results for our clients and we're making a big impact," said Jon Morris, founder and CEO of Rise Interactive.
The expansion includes a state of the art multi-purpose event space, a training and development facility, an internal staircase joining the agency's two floors, and creative collaboration spaces throughout the entire office.
Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner helped the agency unveil the new space with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 23. Governor Rauner met with employees and shared his vision for supporting the tech community and future job growth in Illinois.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel says Chicago needs companies like Rise and stated, "Rise Interactive is one great example of the type of home-grown technology companies that are helping to grow Chicago's 21st-century economy."
