Heartland Payment Systems has broken ground for a $3.5 million headquarters that will consolidate its Edmond operations, provide room for new jobs and serve as its new headquarters, said Chief Sales Officer Tony Capucille.
Heartland is one of the nation’s largest payment processor and a leading provider of merchant business solutions. The company is an electronic payment broker for companies of any type – it processes credit/debit card transactions whenever the card is “swiped” for a consumer purchase.
Heartland will serve as anchor tenant in the new building, occupying 13,000 square feet of the new, 22,000-square-foot office property. The building will be an extension of the Fisher Hall Office Park Developer of Fisher Hall and this expansion is Turner & Associates.
Heartland is a New Jersey-based company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, officials said. Edmond is the company’s sales headquarters operation.
The ceremony was attended by local City Council members Nick Massey and Victoria Caldwell, Heartland executives, and architects Bockus Payne Associates, PC.
Ultimately, the expansion will allow Heartland which now has 30 employees and expects to add about 40 to 45 executive and professional jobs in the coming months. Salaries will range from $40,000 yearly up to six figures. It will be hiring sales executives, recruiters, trainers, data analysts and other positions. There is plenty of room in the new facility, where even more growth anticipated.
Job opportunities are now posted at heartlandpaymentsystems.com.
Heartland has been part of the vibrant Edmond community for many years,” said Capucille. “Our sales team has grown significantly over the past few years and our new headquarters will give us the additional space we need to continue to expand our sales operations team well into the future.”
Heartland partnered with Bockus Payne to design the layout for the new building in Fisher Hall Office Park, which will utilize vintage raw materials. According to Taylor Starr, Director of Interior Design at the firm, the new Heartland offices will feature “Industrial Era meets Modern Minimalist” interiors by mixing reclaimed wood and tufted leather sofas with glass front offices and exposed structural and mechanical systems.
“Generous corridors and informal meeting areas reinforce the customer-first, team approach philosophy of the company,” said Starr. “The entire space will be accented by carefully placed highlights of bright colors and fun lighting.”
The interior design showcases 8×8 cubicles with sliding glass doors and large, open conference rooms made entirely of glass to promote high visibility among team members. Heartland will utilize its 13,000 square feet of space for general sales operations, recruiting and training programs.
“The open floor plan and clear lines of sight reflect the Heartland culture of teamwork and collaboration,” said Vince Lombardo, Executive Director of Sales, Great Lakes, for Heartland. “We’re very excited that construction has started and are looking forward to moving into our future home.”
Construction is scheduled for completion by the end of December 2014.
