SALT LAKE CITY, UT (April 29, 2019) – MarketStar, the pioneer in outsourced sales solutions, is pleased to announce the grand opening of their new location in Salt Lake City, located at 405 So. Main Street in the Washington Federal Building. The new facility will bring 135 jobs to downtown Salt Lake City, with plans for more in the near future.
“This beautiful new downtown office is a great step into the next phase of our history as a tech leader in Utah and places us in the heart of one of the most vibrant cities in the entire country,” said Keith Titus, MarketStar President and CEO. “This is a part of our overall growth strategy as a company, and we plan to bring many more wonderful clients and employees to Salt Lake City.”
In association with the Salt Lake Chamber, MarketStar will hold a ceremonial ribbon cutting on Monday, April 29 at 4 p.m. Dell Loy Hansen, founder and CEO of Wasatch Group, MarketStar’s owner, will be on-hand to open this new chapter in the company’s 30-year history. Local dignitaries, members of the Salt Lake Chamber, and MarketStar employees will also attend the event.
“We look forward to welcoming MarketStar to downtown Salt Lake City,” said Derek Miller, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber and Downtown Alliance. “The Wasatch Group has been a member of the Chamber for many years. The impact they and their acquired companies have had in Utah and around the world has been tremendous. We’re excited to see MarketStar continue to grow and thrive in our capital city.”
Founded in Ogden, Utah, in 1988, MarketStar employs more than 1,100 employees worldwide, with primary offices in Ogden and the newly opened facility in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. The company also has offices in Dublin, Ireland, and Melbourne, Australia. MarketStar has more than 50 clients, from global technology conglomerates to small start-ups. The new office will house client teams for brands ranging from large global telecommunications companies to some of the most exciting SaaS organizations.
As Utah continues to build and attract strong technology companies, MarketStar’s success in the industry preceded the explosive growth along the Wasatch Front. By providing dedicated sales teams for some of the world biggest brightest tech brands, MarketStar employees build their careers in Utah while selling for companies that change the world.
“We have been bringing high-tech sales jobs to Northern Utah for more than three decades,” said Titus. “Our focus is on making sure every employee and every client matters. Expanding into downtown and being a part of such a vibrant community is part of creating those great experiences that bring out the best in everyone.”
In addition to bringing hundreds of new jobs to Salt Lake City, MarketStar will bring their commitment to community to the downtown area. The company has an award-winning community program entitled MarketStar Cares, which activates programs that have generated more than 40,000 individual food items annually to inner-city Ogden and South Jordan School District food pantries, as well as giving employees opportunities to serve during work hours.
