$1 Billion Company, Slalom, expands to Florida bringing hundreds of new jobs
Miami is first of several new offices coming to the sunshine state
MIAMI, Fla. Oct. 8, 2019 – Slalom, the $1B modern consulting firm focused on strategy, technology, and business transformation, has opened its Miami office located in South Florida, with plans to debut several more offices across the state over the next 24 months. Slalom’s Florida offices will employ more than 600 people statewide.
“Florida is glad to welcome Slalom and the hundreds of jobs the firm will bring to the Sunshine State,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “From our pro-business climate to our top-ranked university system, Florida is a place where firms like Slalom can employ exceptional talent and expand without the burdens of high taxes and stifling regulations.”
Slalom was founded in Seattle in 2001. Today, Slalom has 31 offices across the U.S and three countries. Clients include more than half the Fortune 100 and a third of the Fortune 500—along with startups, not-for-profits, and innovative organizations of all kinds.
“When we first started planning Slalom’s Florida expansion, anchoring our office in Miami was a perfect fit, and we’re excited to have Beau Williamson at the helm,” said Troy Johnson, Slalom Chief Growth Officer and Co-Founder. “Beau is dedicated to building a world-class team that will drive amazing outcomes for our clients.”
In addition to Miami, Slalom has plans to open offices in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando, and Jacksonville. For Slalom, Florida is the perfect place for a pioneering company. Florida’s business community is the nation’s third-largest workforce, home to several Fortune 500 companies, a rapidly growing set of mid-market companies and the cruise line capital of the world.
“We’re successful because we invest in people. Invest in communities. Invest in our clients’ success,” said Beau Williamson, Slalom Florida General Manager. “And now, we’re ready to invest in Florida. We’re excited to grow a team who can offer local solutions to clients here that are innovating – from hospitality and retail, to manufacturing, logistics, financial services, healthcare and more.”
South Florida is also the gateway to Latin America, offering Slalom access to many companies that operate and serve customers in central and South America. The other major metros in Florida are diversified with companies spanning a number of industries from casual dining to grocery and theme parks.
“Global firms choose Miami-Dade County again and again for our diverse talent, international access and unparalleled lifestyle,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “As Slalom establishes their Florida headquarters in Miami-Dade they will enjoy immediate access to our dynamic business community and burgeoning tech and innovation ecosystem.”
Along with Slalom’s Florida offices, the company currently employs 7,500 people and plans to hire more than 2,000 people this year.
