JLL Signs Latest Tech Tenant to Old Town Scottsdale: OutboundEngine

Submarket lures leading cloud-based marketing automation provider


PHOENIX, March 31, 2015 – The Phoenix office of JLL has signed OutboundEngine, the 100 percent done-for-you email, social media and content marketing platform, to a new lease at 4110 N. Scottsdale Rd. in Old Town Scottsdale, a market that is becoming increasingly flush with high-tech and internet-related corporate office tenants.

Based in Austin, OutboundEngine specializes in content, email and social media marketing to drive engagement, leads and referrals. The company will use the new location as a regional sales and business development center, and plans to hire 60 employees over the next year.

“Phoenix has a vibrant economy that is attracting a great deal of top talent,” said Branndon Stewart, founder and CEO of OutboundEngine. “As we looked to expand our office and grow our sales team, the Phoenix area seemed like the ideal next step.”

“Scottsdale’s thriving downtown, quality education opportunities and urban lifestyle continues to attract growing companies like OutboundEngine,” said Scottsdale Mayor W.J. “Jim” Lane. “We find that tech companies from across the U.S. are discovering Scottsdale to be the place when they’re looking for a unique, business friendly community to locate and grow their corporate operations.”

“More and more companies are discovering opportunities in the Greater Phoenix region to expand their operations,” said Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “Mayor Lane and his team, led by Danielle Casey, do a tremendous job emphasizing the benefits of living and working in Scottsdale. And the brokerage team at Jones Lang LaSalle has been pivotal in ensuring companies such as OutboundEngine find the right real estate solution in a thriving community.”

“Projects like the Galleria and Camelback Square are quickly filling with tech tenants looking for the same setting that attracted OutboundEngine,” said JLL Managing Director John Pierson, who represented OutboundEngine along with JLL Associate Trevor Pratt. “When it comes to the ideal mix of dining, entertainment and business synergy, Old Town Scottsdale offers a venue that is difficult to beat.”

Greg Mayer of Cushman and Wakefield represented the project landlord.

OutboundEngine is scheduled to move into its new space, at the corner of Scottsdale and Indian School roads, in April.
