International IT services provider, FDM Group, moves into J.P. Morgan’s former penthouse suite on 14 Wall Street, in the financial hub of New York.
With a 92% turnover growth from USA in 2009, FDM continues to experience huge client demand. As a result, FDM has relocated its operations to J.P. Morgan’s former penthouse suite on the 31st floor of the pyramid-‐topped 14 Wall Street of the original ‘Bankers Trust Company Building’.
FDM’s prestigious new residence features outdoor terraces with views overlooking the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall. The 6,709-‐square-‐foot space features two seminar rooms and two meetings rooms, with additional capacity to accommodate graduates undertaking the Academy Program.
The launch of FDM’s award-‐winning Academy Program in the USA has been extremely successful and the training rooms reached full capacity only four months after opening its doors. This unique graduate program is creating more opportunities for US graduates as well as helping to tackle the IT skills shortage worldwide. These graduates are transformed into professional IT Consultants, who progress to represent FDM at some of the world’s largest companies.
Paul Gates, US Sales Manager at FDM, comments: “FDM’s New York operation has grown considerably over the last three years despite the economic downturn. Our turnover growth was up 92% in 2009, this and the on-‐boarding of several new key clients including Misys, Barclays Capital and Credit Suisse has driven the move to Wall Street. We are pleased to announce this as our new US headquarters and the opening of our US Academy. It will serve as an excellent location to launch the careers of hundreds, potentially thousands of IT graduates in the US over the coming years.”
