State-of-the-art facility supports the firm’s next phase of growth and becomes home to BNY Mellon’s ninth Innovation Center
PENNINGTON, NJ, January 12, 2017 – BNY Mellon’s Albridge, an affiliate of Pershing LLC, yesterday celebrated the opening of its new office in Pennington, New Jersey, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by employees and clients. The state-of-the-art facility, which features cutting-edge technologies and dynamic work spaces, advances the firm’s ongoing focus on driving innovation for clients and signifies its next phase of growth.
The 44,000-square-foot Pennington office houses 240 employees and is the ninth BNY Mellon Global Innovation Center, adding to a sprawling global network of Innovation Centers, including Singapore; London, UK; Chennai, India; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.
“The investment in this world-class facility underscores our commitment to providing our employees with the most advanced technologies and amenities that are critical for their success,” said Marc Butler, chief operating officer of Albridge. “The new Pennington office will help fuel our growth into the future by enabling us to more effectively collaborate with and innovate for our clients.”
Albridge’s new Pennington office features collaborative meeting, testing and demo spaces to foster a highly agile product development environment, where teams can work side-by-side with clients on the latest innovations.
“Our new space is designed to bring our clients closer to the development process,” continued Butler. “This innovation-friendly environment will enable us to rapidly address unmet client needs and continually enhance our solutions to stay ahead of market demands.”
The new office features smartly configured floor plans designed to promote worker productivity and innovation. Dynamic room design across the office allows teams to reconfigure rooms for different purposes — whether it is team meetings, client meetings, employee or guest use.
Meeting rooms boast enhanced technology capabilities, incorporating the latest digital workplace collaboration tools for presentation, video conference, technology demonstrations and digital messaging. A design thinking lab at the facility offers employees and users a platform where they can challenge themselves and push their creativity.
The Pennington office also offers numerous amenities that contribute to employee well-being, including an on-campus fitness center, athletic fields, and a Bright Horizons child care center. The office is designed consistent with LEED principles, utilizes LED lighting throughout and makes abundant use of natural lighting.
