ATLANTA, June 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), one of the world’s leading management consulting firms and premier employers, announced today that it is expanding its presence in Atlanta with a new business services center that will house more than 200 new employees over the next few years and as many as 500 within a decade. Employees at the new location—BCG’s third in the city—will support the firm’s growing North American and global operations, working in a variety of functions, including visual services, finance, marketing, recruiting, and human resources.
BCG, which ranked third on this year’s Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list and in the top five for seven straight years, selected Atlanta as the site for the center to capitalize on the metro area’s skilled workforce and the city and state’s innovative, business-friendly environment.
Alan Wise, a senior partner who heads BCG in Atlanta, said the firm will be investing $9.2 million toward the construction of a 40,000-square-foot, two-floor building, to be located in the reinvigorated Downtown Atlanta district. Construction is expected to begin in June 2017 and to be completed in June 2018.
“The new business services center will enable us to support our regional and global teams better and thereby to deliver even greater value to our clients,” said Wise, noting that hiring for the new center began last year. “Since opening BCG Atlanta in 1995, we’ve been deeply committed to the Atlanta community through pro bono consulting projects, individual volunteering, and direct support to local organizations. To be able to bring several hundred additional skilled jobs with competitive compensation, market-leading benefits, and excellent career prospects to our city is another way of showing our commitment to Atlanta.”
“A commitment to the community and the ability to drive change through social impact activities have always been cornerstone values for BCG,” Wise added.
“BCG has displayed a consistent commitment to the metro Atlanta area for years and this expansion reflects the strength of Georgia’s economy today,” said Georgia Governor Nathan Deal. “As the major financial and commercial center of the Southeast, Georgia will continue to provide BCG with a skilled workforce and the advantages of the top state in which to do business. With this new facility, BCG will be even better equipped to serve the national and international firms operating here in Georgia.”
“We’re excited about BCG choosing to expand their presence in our city,” said Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. “By doing so, BCG will bring 232 well-paying jobs to the City of Atlanta, close to many of the Fortune 500 and 1000 clients they serve. BCG is known for its consulting expertise, as well as being an excellent and in-demand employer. We look forward to their continued growth and success in Atlanta.”
BCG opened its Atlanta consulting office, originally located in the Bank of America Plaza, in 1995. In 2010, the office moved to its current location at 1075 Peachtree Street.
In 2015, the firm established its second Atlanta location when it acquired BrightHouse, an Atlanta-based ideation and brand strategy boutique, located at Ponce City Market.
