Established tech hub Thanksgiving Park gains fast-growing tech startup from proving grounds of Provo
PROVO, Utah, July 30, 2014 — MoneyDesktop, a provider of mobile and online banking-based personal financial management (PFM) solutions to banks and credit unions, announces final plans to build their new company headquarters in a prime Lehi location.
Lehi, recently declared fifth fastest-growing area in the nation by the U.S. Census Bureau, continues to attract established enterprise-level SaaS companies, including Adobe, Microsoft, AtTask, Xactware and now MoneyDesktop.
“Our consistent triple-digit growth continues to propel us forward and solidifies our ability to make this investment in our long-term success and health as a company,” said Ryan Caldwell, CEO and founder of MoneyDesktop. “Our patience paid off and the ideal place for our company, especially our employees, finally presented itself. We look forward to contributing tremendous value to the already robust Lehi community.”
Across I-15 from the Adobe building and next door to AtTask’s new offices, MoneyDesktop’s prominent, new five-story building will feature:
‒ A modern and open floor plan.
‒ Silicon Valley style collaboration and innovation spaces.
‒ State-of-the-art security.
‒ Spectacular 360 degree views of the Rocky Mountains and beautiful Utah Valley.
‒ Immediate access to the high-speed internet enabled UTA FrontRunner and TRAX system with direct connections to every talent hub along the Wasatch Front, from Ogden through Salt Lake Valley to Provo.
‒ Essentially door-to-door service to Salt Lake City International Airport by way of TRAX.
‒ Brand new hotel accommodations for visiting partners and clients next door.
‒ Floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
‒ Underground and electrical parking.
‒ Full fitness center.
“We are thrilled that MoneyDesktop is the anchor tenant for Utah’s newest 5-story Class A office building," said Brandon Fugal, Chairman of Coldwell Banker Commercial Intermountain and leasing broker of the MoneyDesktop deal at Thanksgiving Park. "The move comes as a result of their exciting growth and expansion, and Thanksgiving Park undoubtedly provides the premiere environment for continued success."
A groundbreaking ceremony took place on July 30, with addresses from Caldwell, Fugal, Senator Mark Madsen, Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development Val Hale, Lehi Mayor Bert Wilson and several others.
True to MoneyDesktop’s innovative and design-focused approach to business, the building’s modern design will stand out among the more conservative architecture typically used for offices.
“This new space is being built specifically to foster collaboration and creativity; we look forward to filling it with people who are looking to contribute to that vision,” said Caldwell.
Projected ready for occupants by early summer 2015, MoneyDesktop will occupy the top and first floors of the building which both in form and function, will reflect the forward-thinking, startup-minded company culture currently on display at their Provo office.
Located in the heart of Utah’s Silicon Slopes, MoneyDesktop is redefining the way millions of people interact with their finances by developing award-winning personal financial management (PFM), data-driven analytics and marketing technologies. As one of the fastest-growing financial technology providers, MoneyDesktop integrates their solutions directly into mobile and online banking, core and payment providers – positioning banks and credit unions as the financial hub of their account holders. MoneyDesktop currently partners with more than 460 financial institutions and 30 online banking, core and payment network providers.
