BPI Opens NYC Office 2.0
Last November, we shared the news of our expansion to New York City with an announcement in The New York Times. But in the eleven months since we opened our first New York office, BPI NYC has expanded from three employees to ten. With all this growth, it was a natural decision to move offices right in the middle of a busy 2014 midterm election season. We packed up our desks, gathered our wall art and opened our new home at 915 Broadway, between 2 parks, in the center of New York’s Silicon Alley. We’re excited and humbled to be a part of the innovative fabric that has marked a two decade long era of innovation and growth for New York City. With a mixture of luck, timing and strategic planning we are growing quickly with some decisive wins under our belts:
- We helped to elect Bill de Blasio as Mayor of New York City.
- We won BPI’s first Webby for our re-branding of the New York State Democratic Committee website.
- We expanded our services and client base within the non-profit and corporate sphere with organizations like the Anti-Defamation League and VF Corporation.
- BPI’s Adam Shapiro celebrated his third year at BPI and was promoted to Senior Director, while Associate Director Stephanie Gent and Arianna Fishman celebrated one year anniversaries with BPI.
While it took several months and a few false starts before we found the right place, in our effort to move, we learned a few things along the way such as the importance of break out rooms, natural light and a reliable FIOS connection. We are excited to say that these challenges – and more – have been resolved with our relocation.
Most of all, we are fortunate to be growing in staff and clients. Please drop us a note if you would like to work with us — or if you’re in the neighborhood, just drop by and say hello.
