Seattle-based management and technology consultancy Slalom has opened a Miami office, with further plans to open several more offices in Florida over the next two years.

Florida has seen rapid population growth since 2000, expanding by 50%. The state’s low taxes, relatively low cost of living, and growing diversification away from its central tourism industry make Florida increasingly attractive to businesses across the nation. The state is home to the third-largest workforce in the US, several Fortune 500s, and a growing number of mid-market firms. Also, the weather is nice.

Florida is also a gateway to Latin America, with access to numerous firms that operate and service customers in central and South America.

Slalom has decided to tap into the attractive Florida market with a Miami office. The consulting firm – which books $1 billion in annual revenues – plans to also open offices in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Jacksonville, and Orlando in the next 24 months. The Florida offices will employ more than 600 people.

Slalom expands into Florida, opens Miami office“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 has brought in Beau Williamson to lead the Florida business. Williamson joins from Accenture, where he spent 20 years and was most recently a managing director. His expertise lies in advising on large-scale transformation programs across the travel and transportation, freight and logistics, retail, and parcel delivery industries.

“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 cofounder. “Beau is dedicated to building a world-class team that will drive amazing outcomes for our clients.”

Williamson added, “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.”

Slalom has ambitious plans to hire more than 2,000 people overall this year. The company currently has 7,500 employees across 31 offices in the US, Canada, and the UK.
