In a LinkedIn post, Flanagan writes
, "This outstanding new office space marks the beginning of our next chapter. We've designed and built a world-class facility that will help enhance how we do business, benefiting our clients, employees and shareholders."
"I'm also proud that our new headquarters aligns with our commitment to environmental sustainability," Flanagan adds. "It's built to meet the highest standards of energy and employee wellness certifications. In fact, we expect our office space to be the first in Georgia and the seventh in the US to achieve both LEED Platinum and WELL Platinum certifications."
An Invesco spokesperson notes that, as of the end of March, Invesco's HQ has "a total of 799 employees working on 300,000 square feet of office space." The firm has more than 8,400 employees worldwide, so the Atlanta HQ accounts for about 9.5 percent of total headcount.
"Invesco designed and built its new premium office space across seven floors in Midtown Union
where our teams can engage with each other and work," the spokesperson adds. "It offers a variety of collaboration spaces, state-of-the-art technology solutions, healthy eating options, a barista, and so much more."
Within the neighborhood, restaurants, daycares, and electric vehicle parking are also readily available.
Invesco has had a presence in Atlanta since 1978. The company's headquarters moved to the city in 2007.
