Explosive Growth Drives Bullhorn across the Channel to a New Global Headquarters, Leading the Expansion of the Innovation District
Rapid adoption of company’s CRM solution across industries propels headcount growth, need for larger headquarters
BOSTON, Mass., December 9, 2015 – Bullhorn®, whose human-centric CRM platform helps businesses proactively manage relationships, today announced its expansion into larger headquarters in Boston’s Financial District. Early in 2016, the company will take over renovated space in 100 Summer Street, 18 months after expanding and refurbishing its current base of operations in Boston’s Fort Point/Innovation District.
The company will expand its headquarters by more than 30,000 square feet, bringing the total in excess of 77,000 square feet. Bullhorn has added to its global headcount by nearly 45 percent in the past year, moving into an expanded office space in London. It has also grown its presence and headcount significantly in St. Louis. Company executives cite the rapid embrace of its newest CRM products, including the Bullhorn Pulse solution, as driving the need for expanded headquarters so soon after the growth of its current Fort Point base.
Boston’s Innovation District has expanded rapidly, drawing technology companies from Cambridge and Metro West’s 128 belt. Bullhorn is leading the Innovation District’s expansion across the Fort Point Channel to include the area between the South Station and Downtown Crossing MBTA stations – transforming what was once a haven for some of Boston’s most traditional institutions into a hub of innovation.
“The demand for our CRM platform has created explosive growth, both in revenue and in headcount. We ran out of space, on a timetable that was much quicker than expected. We needed an office that represented our brand and would be able to support our continued growth and the space at 100 Summer Street is perfect,” said Art Papas, CEO and co-founder of Bullhorn. “When we moved to the Fort Point Channel area in 2005, it was just called ‘Ft. Point’ and was known for its focus on the arts. Now it’s called the ‘Innovation District’ and everyone in technology knows this is where they need to be. The district needs to expand to keep pace. You have the Pike, I-93, and both the Red and Orange Lines all within 1,000 feet of 100 Summer Street. This neighborhood is the next logical expansion point for the Innovation District.”
