Lithium Technologies Sets Move for New San Francisco Headquarters
EMERYVILLE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, the leader in Social Customer Experience, today
unveiled plans to relocate its headquarters to San Francisco, more than
doubling its size to accommodate the company's growth and increasing
Lithium's ability to attract key talent from across the Bay Area.
Lithium also announced it has appointed Jennifer Trzepacz as Senior Vice
President of Human Resources, adding an unrivaled expert in human
resource management to its leadership.
Lithium's new San Francisco headquarters and the addition of yet another
world-class leader will further strengthen its ability to continue
leading the transformation of how business is done in today's social
age. The latest appointment follows the recent
addition of Mark Culhane as Lithium's Chief Financial Officer.
By June 2013, Lithium will relocate its headquarters to the heart of
downtown San Francisco as the lead tenant in the historic Standard
Oil Building, which is being retrofitted as a technology center.
Lithium's new San Francisco hub will further increase its ability to
attract leading talent to serve its global customers and place it in the
geographic center of the social conversation.
The approximately 50,000 square feet space is being reconfigured from
the ground up to provide a state-of-the-art customer briefing center and
facilities to accommodate around 400 staff.
Lithium additionally announced it has opened a New York office in
Midtown Manhattan. Combined with its existing presence in key markets
including Atlanta, Austin, London, Paris, Singapore, Sydney and Zurich,
Lithium's new world-class San Francisco headquarters and its New York
facility will ensure Lithium is physically present across all the
world's key social markets.
