News : Varsity Tutors Plans Opening of National Contact Center with Help of JLL
Phoenix, AZ, USA, Aug 8, 2017 -- Varsity Tutors, the live learning company that provides access to experts on its platform, announced that it is significantly expanding its sales and customer support team and footprint in the Phoenix area. Working on behalf of Varsity Tutors, the Phoenix office of JLL has completed a new lease that will relocate the rapidly growing company from its current Scottsdale location to 40,000 square feet within Rio2100 in Tempe. The new location will serve as a national sales and customer support center.
Varsity Tutors connects students to experts for online, mobile, and instant instruction via its digital platform, as well as to in-person experts nationally. Varsity Tutors expanded into Arizona in September 2016.
After opening a sales office in Scottsdale with 25 employees, the company has since hired 50 additional team members. Varsity Tutors expects to reach 100+ employees in the Phoenix area by the close of 2017, with even more significant employee growth planned in 2018. Its new team members will fill open roles in sales, customer care, and operations. A list of positions that are currently available can be found online.
JLL Executive Vice President Ryan Bartos and Associate Kyle Seeger represented Varsity Tutors in the lease transaction. JLL’s Project and Development Services team will direct all tenant improvements.
"The company’s new national sales office and customer support center will give them the right space, in the right location, with the right amenities to continue to attract and grow with the area’s best employees," Bartos said. "The new office will feature highly functional floor plans and 18-foot ceilings, allowing for a dynamic space that reflects the company’s culture of collaboration and continuous learning."
"We continue to invest in Phoenix given the amount of sales talent and the highly educated workforce," said Chuck Cohn, Founder and CEO of Varsity Tutors. "We’ve built a tremendous team in our Phoenix office, and it will be exciting to see that culture evolve as we grow our presence here."
