Consulting Firm CapTech Expands in Downtown Charlotte with Plans to Create 65 New Tech and Creative Consulting Jobs in 2018
CHARLOTTE, NC – February 20, 2018 –CapTech, an IT management consulting firm, announced today the relocation of its expanded operations in Charlotte to a new 12,000 sq. ft. office located at 300 South Tryon Street. CapTech celebrated the office opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on February 16.
CapTech opened their Charlotte office in 2010, and has since grown to more than 150 local consultants, which is almost 20% of CapTech's total workforce nationwide. The company says it plans to create 65 new technology, design, and management consulting jobs in 2018.
"Having outgrown our former space, we wanted to give our consultants the best possible working environment – fostering collaboration, creativity, and productivity. We understand that where you work is important," said Principal Errol Restelli. The office is located in the newest Class A workspace in downtown Charlotte. "Proximity to our clients was a priority, and the 360-views of the city is a big win for our employees," said Restelli.
The new office features a large collaboration space that has the flexibility to host internal and external events, both large and small. "Having scalable space to accommodate employee development and client functions, as well as social events, like game night, was a requirement," said Restelli. There is a fully functional Usability Testing Lab, featuring one-way mirrors and state-of-the-art equipment. Common areas boast an integrated sound system, a loft area with a stadium-style lounge space, and full kitchen with a keg-o-rator.
"There has been really positive reception to our model in Charlotte, which is to build long-term relationships with our clients and deliver end-to-end custom solutions with the best local technical and creative consultants in the industry," said Principal Jeff Skipper. "We are incredibly proud of the trusted partnerships we have built with our Charlotte Fortune 500 clients, and the tremendous growth we are experiencing across industry, especially in financial services and health care."

Mirroring CapTech's corporate philanthropic philosophy, the local office shows their committment to giving by using their unique creative and technical talent to impact positive local change.
