Indianapolis marks the company’s third nationwide presence, offering access to a diverse pipeline of talent and new business opportunities.
Arlington, VA — January 29, 2020— DC area-based digital transformation partner, U.Group, is marking a year of record growth with news of expansion into the Midwest. With plans to locate in Indianapolis’ Northside neighborhood, the company aims to hire 12 people immediately with more than 100 high-skilled positions to become part of its Midwest operations by the close of 2020. The move is part of the company’s long-term strategy to diversify its prospective talent pool and partner base.
An established leader in IT innovation, the expansion is the result of U.Group’s tremendous success in 2019. The company’s rapid growth and reputation for delivering game-changing solutions earned it several accolades, including a spot on the Northern Virginia Technology Council’s Tech 100 list for most innovative tech leaders, the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing companies list, and the Virginia Chamber of Commerce’s Fantastic 50 growth list as well as its recognition as the state’s Top Services Company.
“2019 has been an incredible year for us, and we don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon,” said CEO Lena Trudeau. “Expanding our operations to a new city enables us to further accelerate our momentum—it will allow us to deliver broader capabilities, deepen existing customer relationships as well as forge new ones, and amplify the impact we create for our customers.”
U.Group’s VP, Strategy & Operations, a native Hoosier, had this to say about the expansion: “When we were considering a new hub for U.Group, Indianapolis made perfect sense. The city is a great fit for U.Group from a culture, collaboration, and talent perspective and we feel right at home,” explained Anuj Vedak. “With an incredible mix of tech startups and mature corporations, expanding into Indianapolis also affords us the opportunity to be part of this next phase of the city’s growth. We look forward to being an early partner in their innovation ecosystem.”
The company’s Midwest presence will play an invaluable role in the fulfillment of a recently-awarded three-year, $100 million contract for DevSecOps services, the largest in company history, and the expansion of existing relationships with local partners. With nearly 300 employees, primarily in its DC area and Portland, Oregon offices, U.Group will continue to hire new talent and amplify its presence in all three major markets.
