Slalom, the $1.6B modern consulting firm focused on strategy, technology, and business transformation, today announced the opening of its newest office in New Jersey. The new office will bring more than 350 jobs to the Garden State over the next several years.
"Slalom's expansion allows us to provide a deeper level of service to our New Jersey clients by hiring the state's top talent," said Troy Johnson, Slalom Chief Growth Officer and Co-Founder. "Our model is to hire locally. In over 35 cities around the world, Slalom teams have the autonomy to move fast and do what's right for our clients, making us more personal and nimbler than traditional consulting firms."
Home to over 20 Fortune 500 companies and industry leaders in pharmaceuticals, insurance, retail, and technology, New Jersey is the ideal location for Slalom to help businesses find new ways to innovate and grow.
“On behalf of the New Jersey business community, Choose New Jersey would like to welcome Slalom to our great state,” said Jose Lozano, President and CEO of Choose New Jersey. “This move demonstrates that New Jersey continues to be a premier place for leading businesses with all the assets – and accessibility – any forward-thinking company needs. We are home to one of the most highly educated workforces in the U.S. and a business located in central New Jersey can serve more than 22 million consumers.”
Slalom was founded in Seattle in 2001. Today, Slalom is a $1.6B company in over 35 markets across the US and around the world. Slalom’s clients include more than half the Fortune 100 and a third of the Fortune 500—along with startups, not-for-profits, and innovative organizations of all kinds.
“Slalom New Jersey is the first Slalom office representing an entire state, not just a city—and we take great pride in that,” said Jeff Van Wie, Slalom General Manager for New Jersey. “With an exclusive focus on our clients in the New Jersey market, we now have an opportunity to better help them implement their strategies through transformational programs as they grow and reinvent their businesses.”
Along with Slalom’s newest office, the company currently employs 7,500 people globally and will continue its rapid growth throughout 2020.
