By David Scott, Managing Member at Avid Communications.
Avid Communications announces that it has opened an office in Des Moines, IA and is now offering our services throughout the Des Moines metro area. It is our first expansion outside the Kansas City area.
Our new office is located in West Des Moines in an area called Valley Junction. Valley Junction is an area of interesting shops and restaurants, and reminded us of our home in the Crossroads in Kansas City. It’s a short drive to downtown Des Moines and close to the fast-growing western suburbs.
Why Des Moines?
We chose Des Moines for many reasons. Foremost, it’s a booming, progressive and prosperous area with a current metro population of 665,409 on its way to a million. It’s the capital of Iowa and a center for the insurance and financial services industry.
We took a close look at service offerings in the area and found nothing quite like the services Avid offers–so we see a great opportunity to bring our cloud-based services to businesses there. Much like Kansas City, it has a strong and growing fiber-optic network serving the business community–the perfect complement for all that Avid does.
And it’s nearby–an easy three hour drive up I-35, which affords us the luxury of spending lots of time there to ensure that we operate in Des Moines the Avid way–with a strong local sales and service team. Taylor Cates, our Director of Sales, will oversee the Des Moines office.
Although we’ve already inked deals with several major customers, we officially open our doors for business on January 15th and will be offering our full array of services. Come visit us at 318 5th Street, West Des Moines, IA or call us at 515-635-4610.
