Company Press Release
RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 24, 2011 -- RiverFront Investment Group is pleased to announce the relocation of its corporate headquarters to 1214 East Cary Street in the historic Shockoe Slip area of downtown Richmond.
Built in 1866, RiverFront's new headquarters underwent a year of renovation to preserve the historical character of the building. "We are thrilled to be a part of the downtown Richmond business community again," said Michael Jones, RiverFront's Chairman and Chief Investment Officer. "Our vision is to build a world class asset management and advice firm headquartered in Richmond. Our new location is an important milestone in our journey together."
Owned by SECAM, INC., the interior of the building was redesigned by Commonwealth Architects and transformed from a restaurant into open and collaborative office space. The renovations were done by Emerson Builders and Courtney Ludeman Interiors was retained as the designer. RiverFront will initially occupy the first and second floors. They also leased the third floor to accommodate future growth.
"This is an exciting moment in the history of our firm," said Pete Quinn, RiverFront's President and Chief Operating Officer. "We have been fortunate to have experienced significant growth since our founding in 2008 despite the very challenging investment environment we have faced. We believe part of our success has been building and maintaining a collaborative culture. To us, that means taking care of our clients and taking care of each other. Our new space is designed to further that end."
