Steady Growth Leads BTM Global to Expand and Relocate

JLL Represents BTM Global in Transaction


Minneapolis, MN (September 17, 2014)—BTM Global, a leader in the development and implementation of enterprise software solutions, will be relocating its offices and expanding its operations before year’s end. Currently occupying 8,000 sq. ft. at 310 Fourth Avenue South in downtown Minneapolis, BTM will double its office footprint when it moves to the recently renovated 330 South Second Avenue building.

Ranked as one of Minneapolis’ fastest growing companies and best places to work, BTM Global implements, integrates and customizes enterprise software systems, primarily in the retail sector, but with a growing practice in the healthcare industry. The company was founded in October 2004 and has offices in both Minneapolis and Asia. After 10 years in business, the company currently has over 100 employees globally and projects continued growth and expansion of business and its workforce.

“We’re very excited about our new space, and extremely pleased with the comprehensive site selection and space planning process that was led by JLL’s John Lorence and Tad Jellison. We were constrained by our current location and needed more space to meet our operational and financial objectives,” said Tom Schoen, President of BTM Global.

John Lorence, Managing Director with JLL, assisted BTM in the completion of a 16,000-square-foot lease transaction at 330 South Second Avenue. “With their ongoing growth, BTM sought a location that offered an immediate solution to their space needs while also giving them flexibility for further expansion,” Lorence said. “In leasing approximately half of a full floor, BTM has that flexibility for growth in 12, 24 or 48 months, whenever it is needed.”

BTM’s new space will be in keeping with the culture and workplace needs of the company. “Our mantra at BTM is that teammembers are the most critical factor in our success, and to achieve this we need a comfortable and welcoming environment that facilitates teamwork and productivity,” Schoen said. Along with generous work stations, BTM’s new office will feature plenty of open collaborative spaces and conference rooms where team members will collectively and individually address and create client solutions. A large break room will also promote collaboration and interaction.  Studio Hive and Gardner Builders, both of Minneapolis, were hired to provide interior design and build-out of the new expansion.
