Liazon Expanding Buffalo HQ with New Office and New Jobs
BUFFALO, NY – (May 29, 2013) – Liazon Corporation, operator of the industry-leading private exchange for businesses across the U.S., announced its plans to move to a new, larger office in downtown Buffalo. The new lease will be for up to 15,000 square feet of office space starting in 2014. The company needed a larger space that could accommodate its growing team. Liazon will be adding up to 25 jobs to its Buffalo office in 2013 alone, about a 30% increase from its current staffing level.
“The Buffalo business community and its people have been part of the secret sauce to our success at Liazon,” said Ashok Subramanian, chief executive officer and co-founder of Liazon. “We are excited to re-invest in Buffalo as we prepare for the next wave of growth in the private exchange market and for our solution.”
Liazon will occupy the top floor of a landmark Scott Street building that dates back to the 1920s and formerly housed a wholesale dairy distributor. The building will be completely rehabilitated into a mix of residential, commercial, and retail space, anchored by Liazon’s presence on the top floor, that will fuel redevelopment in the area. The new space will provide Liazon with room to expand in the years to come as it continues to grow its business. The company is adding new jobs in Buffalo in the areas of technology, product development, data analysis, technical support, customer service, and administration.
Liazon has always been committed to being part of the Buffalo community. The company and its employees contribute in many ways to the area including participating in charitable events, social outings and community outreach. The company was voted one of the Best Places to work in Western New York and part of Buffalo Business First’s Fast Track 50 which recognizes growing area companies. Additionally, in 2012, Liazon was named #132 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies nationwide.
