Gilbert, Arizona is thrilled to welcome leading professional services firm, Deloitte, as it announces an expansion of its Arizona footprint with a new U.S. Delivery Center. The initial $34 million investment will result in the occupancy of 102,000-square-feet of space at The Commons at Rivulon, a development at Gilbert Road and the Santan Loop 202 freeway, and the creation of at least 1,500 jobs in the Gilbert community.
“Gilbert is the perfect home for Deloitte as there are a multitude of opportunities for synergy between the world class company and this community,” said Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels. “With the creation of these high-wage jobs, Deloitte will be one of the largest employers in Gilbert. This will not just benefit those in Gilbert but all of the Phoenix-metro area.”
The U.S. Delivery Center is designed to deliver scalable technology-based solutions efficiently and effectively to meet clients’ evolving business needs. The center will provide capabilities for cloud, Salesforce, robotic and cognitive automation, blockchain, SAP and more. The state-of-the-art center will serve state government clients in the west region and commercial clients in industries including health care and financial services.
“Our strategic decision to locate our new delivery center in the metro-Phoenix area expands upon our nearly 60 year investment in, and commitment to, Arizona,” said Jonas McCormick, Arizona managing principal, Deloitte LLP. “The new center will further enhance our leadership position in the region by leveraging a deep talent pool of highly-skilled workers to serve our clients across industry sectors.”
Deloitte’s U.S. subsidiaries rank among the nation’s leading professional services firms in audit and assurance, risk and financial advisory, tax, and consulting services across more than 20 industries. Known as an employer of choice for more than 245,000 people, Deloitte is dedicated to helping clients and people excel.
“Deloitte’s purpose is to matter to clients, people and communities and spread that message to the world. Just like in Gilbert, where we are focused on delivering services at the highest level to improve the lives of our residents and businesses,” said Gilbert Town Manager Patrick Banger. “Recently ranked as the best place to live, work and play in Arizona and the most prosperous city in the country, Gilbert’s commitment to our future perfectly aligns with Deloitte’s and we look forward to a long-term meaningful and collaborative relationship.”
Deloitte will be located in The Commons at Rivulon, a new multi-building creative office neighborhood now under construction along Rivulon Boulevard, which caters to technology, creative and collaborative tenants seeking large, open and flexible space in an integrated campus environment. The dedicated neighborhood features outdoor common spaces, access to walking paths, and nearby retail and restaurants. They will join Morgan Stanley, Isagenix World Headquarters, and Bank of America, to name just a few, at Rivulon, providing visibility and access to over 1 million people within a 30-minute commute.
“We are thrilled to welcome Deloitte to Rivulon,” said Brian J. Ellis, President and COO of Nationwide Realty Investors, owner and developer of Rivulon. “This announcement is reflective of tremendous ongoing efforts by the State and the Town of Gilbert to attract successful companies and quality jobs. Major employers want to be part of our best-in-class development in this thriving community.”
“Arizona has become a hub for technology and innovation” said Sandra Watson, President & CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “The large number of jobs created by Deloitte for this expansion shows confidence not only in the environment that fosters growth in the tech sector, but also the skilled and talented workforce Arizona can provide.”
“Deloitte’s expansion to Greater Phoenix highlights the regions tremendous assets and ability to meet the needs of one of the nation’s leading professional services organizations,” says Chris Camacho, president & CEO Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “Their location in Gilbert allows Deloitte access to a robust and dynamic tech talent pool and supportive resources to enhance their current and future growth. We thank them for their investment and wish them continued success.”
