Company Relocates Charlotte Offices to Accommodate Continued Growth and Innovation across TradeKing Group and Its Subsidiary Companies.
CHARLOTTE, NC—April 21, 2015 – TradeKing Group, Inc., the parent company of online broker-dealer TradeKing Securities (www.tradeking.com) and online advisor TradeKing Advisors (www.tradekingadvisors.com), today announced the company has relocated to expanded offices in Charlotte, North Carolina. Effective immediately, the TradeKing Group companies will be located in the Calhoun Building at 11605 North Community House Drive in the Ballantyne Corporate Place. This move reflects the continued rapid growth of TradeKing Securities and TradeKing Advisors, as well as the newly-established TradeKing Media subsidiary.
“This move to larger offices reflects TradeKing Group’s ongoing commitment to tapping the rich financial and technology talent resources available in the Charlotte market — a primary hub for our organization since 2007,” said Rich Hagen, President of TradeKing Securities and CEO of TradeKing Advisors. “As our group of subsidiary companies continues to grow and thrive in response to market demand, we’ll now have the space we need to add new talent to our team and continue to innovate in the market. In our new space, the TradeKing team of employees will work together to continue to grow a modern and diversified financial services firm of which we can all be proud.”
The new 26,000 square foot office, comprising an entire floor of the North Community House Drive facility, more than doubles TradeKing Group’s previous Charlotte footprint. The space is designed to accommodate more than 200 employees, giving TradeKing Group and its subsidiary companies ample room for continued growth. TradeKing Group will house a variety of functions in the North Community House Drive offices, including marketing, client service, trading, brokerage operations, social media, and technology for its three subsidiary companies. The company will continue to maintain its office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
“TradeKing exemplifies a dynamic business that continues to thrive while remaining committed to Charlotte,” said Barry Fabyan, Senior Vice President & Manager, Bissell. “A testament to its success, TradeKing has expanded its footprint by more than 20,000 square feet since establishing its presence more than eight years ago in Ballantyne Corporate Park.”
The Calhoun Building is LEED® Gold-certified by the U.S. Green Building Council, providing third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor air quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
“Doubling the TradeKing office footprint was only possible thanks to the significant behind-the-scenes contributions from many TradeKing-ers, working closely with the team at Bissell,” commented Jason Lisick, Assistant Vice President, Strategic Initiatives for TradeKing. “I couldn’t be more excited about the benefits the new space affords both our employees and our clients, including the room to expand our client service and technical resources as well as better collaboration facilities.”
