Consulting firm expands in Willis Tower
Chicago, IL, January 8, 2015 – Technology firm SPR Consulting tripled its headquarters office space in Willis Tower. The firm signed a 10-year lease for 15,000 square feet of office space in the skyscraper at 233 S. Wacker Drive, up from 5,000 square feet, said Bill Topel, the firm’s chief sales and marketing officer. SPR, which provides services like testing applications for smart phones and other devices, expanded the office to create space for employees who were working off-site and to allow the firm to bring its business units, which previously operated like separate companies, under one roof. “We really wanted to unify under one culture and one brand,” Topel added. SPR plans to hire as many as 60 people in company operations, sales and consultants this year. The 3.8 million-square-foot Willis Tower is 87.4 percent leased, according to real estate data provider CoStar Group.
