U.K.’s Top Design and Build Agency AmazeRealise Opens North American Headquarters in Chicago
Digital Agency to add 100 new jobs in Chicago in the next 18 months
On June 12, World Business Chicago President and CEO Andrea Zopp visited U.K.-based AmazeRealise – part of digital transformation services company Kin + Carta – to announce Chicago will be the central hub of the agency’s U.S. expansion. Contributing to the growth of Kin + Carta, AmazeRealise will add 100 new jobs in the next 18 months in their location at 111 N. Canal Street with their sister company Solstice.
“AmazeRealise’s office opening is a testament to Chicago’s status as a global hub for tech and innovation,” said Andrea Zopp. “International companies continue to choose Chicago for their U.S. operations, and we look forward to working with AmazeRealise and seeing them thrive into the future.”
AmazeRealise’s Chicago office will be its first in the U.S. It currently has over 350 employees working out of its offices in London, Manchester, Liverpool, and Edinburgh in the UK. It will develop data-led CX, custom digital platforms, and real-time digital communications from their new tech-hub in Chicago, working closely with new and existing clients within the Kin + Carta Connective. It was rated as the #1 U.K. Design and Build Agency and #7 Digital Agency in the UK by Econsultancy.
“We have a growth mindset and have chosen Chicago not just as a key strategic location, but as an active partner in helping us achieve that growth,” said Richard Neish, Chief of Staff, AmazeRealise.
Kin + Carta, the parent company of AmazeRealise, provides next-generation, digital transformation services for Fortune 500 companies across healthcare, financial services, transportation, industrial, agriculture, retail, and distribution. Over 400 of its more than 1,500 employees are based in Chicago at its subsidiary Solstice, a digital innovation firm that had a major expansion last year to its 60,000 square-foot office in the West Loop.
Tech continues to be one of Chicago’s fastest growing industry sectors. AmazeRealise’s announcement follows 2019 tech company expansions or HQ relocations from Google, Tegus, DocuSign, BlueCrew, XSELL Technologies, 3D Hubs, and Keeper Security.
