West Monroe Partners, a Chicago-based business and technology consulting firm, has announced the relocation of its Minneapolis offices to The Nordic building in the North Loop neighborhood.

The firm announced it will move into the expanded 42,000 square foot space at 729 Washington Avenue in April 2020. The new location will bring together the employees at West Monroe's present office at 123 N. 3rd Street and 110 N. 5th Street with the team at GoKart Labs, a digital product studio the firm acquired in October.

The acquisition of GoKart was the largest in West Monroe’s history, adding 50 professionals and expanding the firm’s ability to design, build, and launch digital businesses and experiences.

The new office in The Nordic will house West Monroe’s more than 100 Minneapolis-based employees, while also providing room to grow. The company projects that increasing demand for consulting services in the region will see the local employee base double between now and 2025.

“Already, we are seeing tremendous impact from integrating the respective consulting, creative, and technology talents of West Monroe and GoKart Labs, so it has been a priority for us to find space where we can bring everyone together. The Nordic not only enables us to do that; it also offers a modern, efficient, human-centered environment that is very much aligned with our people-first culture,” said Tom Ewers, managing director and Minneapolis office leader.

West Monroe opened its Minneapolis office in 2013. GoKart was founded in 2009, and its digital product studio serves clients across the country. Both West Monroe and GoKart Labs have been named a Star Tribune Top Workplace and a Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal Best Place to Work.

The Nordic is a mixed-use development featuring restaurants, retail, micro-unit housing, parking and bike storage, a four-season plaza, and a rooftop patio.

“West Monroe joins other fast-growing companies on the leading edge of their industries that have selected The Nordic as their home because it offers an ideal location and a variety of amenities their employees can enjoy," Gordy Stofer, vice president of capital markets for United Properties, which owns the development.

West Monroe is currently hiring for range of positions in Minneapolis.
