Gabriel Partners expands into Downtown Phoenix

An Ohio-based technology based anti-money laundering company, Gabriel Partners, expanded into Phoenix with plans of moving 20 employees downtown as well as up to 80 more by the end of the year.

Savills Studley represented Gabriel Partners in its long-term lease agreement for the full 19,202 square-foot 22nd floor of 40 North Central Avenue in downtown Phoenix.

“Geographically, we were looking for better access to our west coast clients, a bigger recruiting pool of bilingual and top talent to fuel our aggressive hiring campaign and expansion efforts, and a business environment that gelled well with our Cleveland-based headquarters,” said Christopher R. Brauser, CEO/Partner of Gabriel Partners.

“Ultimately, Savills Studley helped us narrow down the playing field and we decided that downtown Phoenix made the most sense for our specific needs.  It is a young, progressive, aggressive and fun location that vibes perfectly with our company culture,” Brauser said.

Ryan Bartos and Matthew Coxhead, managing directors for Savills Studley in Phoenix, represented Gabriel Partners in the transaction; Pat Divine of Cushman and Wakefield represented the landlord.

“Downtown Phoenix has seen tremendous rejuvenation and revitalization over the last 12 to 18 months and offers clients such as Gabriel Partners direct access to the west coast markets, without paying the costs,” Bartos said.  “Gabriel Partner’s new office space will feature an open, modern-corporate tech build out with really cool collaboration areas for its employees that also allows the flexibility for the company to grow.”

According to Bartos, 40 North Central Avenue also provides incredible amenities for employees on site and within walking distance, including a state-of-the-art gym and access to downtown restaurants and entertainment venues.
