HighQ officially opened its new US headquarters Monday, March 26, cementing its commitment to growth in the North American market.
A UK-based company with nearly 400 employees, HighQ continues to envision the area playing a key role in growth plans since first moving to Kansas at the start of 2017. The new 7,500-square-foot facility at 132nd Street and Metcalf Avenue will house about 27 employees, with room in the office to expand the workforce as business grows.
“We started this journey in Kansas City just over a year ago,” said Paul Hunt, chief revenue officer for HighQ. “During that time, HighQ has fallen in love with the area, and we feel good about the decision to solidify our headquarters here in the Midwest.
“In terms of access to the rest of the United States, it’s ideally located, and we have found a wealth of tremendously talented people to join the team.”
HighQ worked with local suppliers to design and outfit the building. In addition to a modern office space, the company now has a staff kitchen area and five large meeting rooms, named Green Lady Lounge, Cigar Box, Jack Stack, The Peanut and Majestic as a nod to notable Kansas City spots.
“This new location is going to be great for our culture” Hunt said. “Last year we were honored to be named Kansas City’s best place to work by the Kansas City Business Journal and this new office is part of our ongoing commitment to that ideal. As we continue to grow this will help bring everyone together and provide a much better environment for building a team atmosphere.”
Founded in 2001, HighQ provides innovative software solutions to the legal industry. Offering collaborative and analytical tools to improve service delivery, HighQ counts more than half of the Global 100 law firms as clients.
Kansas City-based employees work in sales, marketing, customer service, account management and application support roles.
