When I founded Waldron Private Wealth in 1995, I knew that the key to creating a great client experience was to employ the best team possible.
As a business owner, experienced practitioner and father, I have learned people thrive in an environment that is designed to foster creative and collaborative thinking. In fact, it is that very principle that has guided my decision-making over the years—the building blocks that allow our firm to create, implement and manage a truly comprehensive client solution.
Now, more than 20 years later, I’m excited to announce that we’re taking our vision even further as we break ground on a brand new, state-of-the-art office building that will merge our existing offices into one collective unit.
Come summer 2017 , Waldron’s new headquarters will be located on the top floor of Beacon 1—a new office building under construction in the southwest corridor of Pittsburgh. Once complete, Beacon 1 will span 80,000 square feet, with 20,000 square feet of leasable office space per floor. Central to Beacon 1’s design are a number of innovative and green-inspired elements, such as rooftop solar panels, electric car charging stations and a walking trail.
But beyond its external features, this new development will provide us with the ability to unite our culture and harness our experience and creativity under one roof. As part of the construction project, we’ve asked our team members to help design our space to fit their unique needs and the needs of our clients. Some of the initial priorities include enhancing our teleconferencing and AV capabilities to help us better reach our more remote clients, and establishing shared workspaces where employees can meet and brainstorm ideas.
Our business and our world are always changing, and as we continue to grow and evolve as a company, it is our people that remain a steadfast constant. Our clients, partners, employees and friends are what make Waldron Private Wealth such a success, and it is my hope and my vision that our new home will serve as a tribute to those who have helped build our firm from the ground up.
We’re excited to see what the future holds and look forward to taking this next step with our team.
