Elliott Davis, a leading business solutions firm with nine offices across the Southeast and nearly 800 employees, announced plans to move its corporate headquarters from the current location at 200 East Broad Street in downtown Greenville to a larger, more modern space at 435 South Main Street in the new Falls Tower building within the Camperdown development.
“We’re at an exciting point in the evolution of Elliott Davis,” said Rick Davis, CEO. “Our new headquarters is an extension of that evolution and will support the growth we’re experiencing throughout our firm. This space will provide the room and amenities to help us attract and retain the best talent in this very competitive market. Our employees are our most valuable asset, and we believe the design of this office will reinforce a culture that is highly collaborative and innovative.”
Located in a strategic setting on Main Street, the new headquarters underscores Elliott Davis’ commitment to the city it has called home since its founders opened the Greenville office in 1925. It will occupy 60,000 square feet across three floors, as well as a collaborative street-level space that the community and visitors alike will be able to enjoy. The expansion, which is scheduled to take place in November 2020, will accommodate the company’s anticipated future growth and facilitate the cross-practice collaboration that fuels innovation and enables the firm to deliver more value to its clients.
“On behalf of the City of Greenville, I’m absolutely thrilled at the commitment Elliott Davis is making to our great city by serving as the primary tenant of the highly anticipated Camperdown building on Main Street,” stated Mayor Knox White. “As one of the Top 40 accounting firms in the U.S., this is a true statement to our thriving economy and the exciting future we have ahead of us.”
Elliott Davis’ new headquarters will house the firm’s growing number of local employees, its executive offices, and the Greenville operations team, which includes tax, assurance, and consulting and advisory leadership. A shared-workspace environment, coupled with meeting rooms and common areas on each floor, will provide ample opportunities for employees to forge the cross-discipline relationships that foster creativity and ultimately yield holistic business solutions.
“The Camperdown team is ecstatic to be a part of the new Elliott Davis headquarters in the Falls Tower building,” said Brody Glenn, president of Camperdown’s developer, Centennial American Properties. “Local companies reinvesting in downtown is one of the reasons Greenville has become one of the best downtowns in the country. Elliott Davis is a great example of this and their commitment to being a corporate leader in Greenville for years to come.”
Camperdown is a “live, work, play” development scheduled to open in 2020. In addition to the Falls Tower building where the new Elliott Davis headquarters will be located, Camperdown will feature a 196-room AC Hotel; 80,000 square feet of retail space; a 609-space parking garage; and the largest public plaza in the city’s history.
