PwC US Signs Long-term Lease in New Orleans

Professional services firm moves office to First Bank & Trust Tower

NEW ORLEANS, June 10, 2014 -- PwC US today announced that the firm has committed to its future in New Orleans by signing a 10.5-year lease in the First Bank & Trust Tower, located at 909 Poydras Street. New Orleans-based PwC professionals will make their move into the new facility in late October.

PwC sought out the building to accommodate its future growth plans. The professional services firm is optomistic about its long-term growth prospects in the market and intends to increase its employment in order to continue its strong growth trajectory in South Louisiana.

“PwC has a long history of serving leading companies in the New Orleans area, and we’re looking forward to continuing that legacy,” said Kathy Nieland, site leader for PwC New Orleans. “We continue to see an increased demand for our accounting, tax and consulting services, and we’re optimistic about future employment and financial growth. We see a bright future in New Orleans and intend to continue our growth in our new space. We also plan to continue our work in the community, with a focus on helping local schools and organizations improve education and financial literacy.”

The office will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including the latest media sharing and collaboration tools. Nieland noted that the layout of the new space will enhance team collaboration and knowledge sharing, cater to the mobile worker and aid in client service delivery.

“As our business and the businesses of our clients continue to evolve, we recognize that technology and the workforce of the future will change the way we work,” added Nieland. “The new office design reflects this, emphasizing teaming, personal flexibility and efficiency.”

When selecting the location, the firm considered where its clients are located as well as where its people live, including traffic and commuting options.
