Outsell's new office in Capella Tower in Minneapolis, MN


Outsell announced today that it has relocated to new office space in downtown Minneapolis that is double the size of its previous space. Effective August 1, the company’s new address is: The Capella Tower, 225 South Sixth Street, Suite 3200, Minneapolis, MN 55402. Outsell will occupy the entire 32nd floor of the building, totaling 18,000 square feet. The company’s main phone number, 612-236-1500, will remain unchanged, as will employees’ direct-dial numbers.

To celebrate the move, Outsell will host an open house in its new space on August 9th at 3:30pm Central time. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak will perform a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the event, which is open to current and prospective clients, media and other friends of the company. In addition, U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar will participate via video, offering her congratulations on Outsell’s expansion.

Over the last few years Outsell has achieved substantial growth. In 2008, the company had just 29 employees; by the end of 2012, it will have close to 100. Outsell’s 2010 and 2011 revenue growth exceeded 50 percent, and the company has maintained its pace in 2012.

Outsell’s Digital Engagement Platform offers automotive manufacturers the ability to consistently engage with consumers across distributed dealer sales networks from the national to local level. This intuitive platform makes it easy for brands, dealers and their agencies to effectively engage with consumers.

Outsell has successfully delivered its digital marketing solutions to some of the biggest brands in the auto industry, including Toyota and Chevrolet through agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi and Agency 720. More than 1,000 dealers across the nation currently use the Outsell platform, and they’re seeing a 5-to-1 return on investment, minimum, by selling 2 to 15 more cars every month along with hundreds of additional repair orders. In just 60 days a company can be up, running and moving more vehicles via the Outsell platform.

In June, Outsell’s Digital Engagement Platform received a 2012 Silver Stevie Award for Consumer Marketing, based on a Chevrolet Drip Campaign. In April, Outsell Founder & CEO Mike Wethington was named a finalist in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2012 program. Outsell was also recognized recently by the Minneapolis Star Tribune as a “National Standard” in its annual Top Workplaces feature.

“Downtown Minneapolis is already the economic engine of Minnesota, and one of our fastest-growing sectors downtown is high tech,” said Mayor R.T. Rybak. “Outsell’s locating 100 high-tech employees right here is another clear sign that downtown Minneapolis is becoming a major hub for high-tech business, entrepreneurs and talent.”

“Digital marketing solutions are a key driver in the tech economy, so Outsell’s business is growing rapidly,” said Mike Wethington. “The vibrancy of downtown Minneapolis is the perfect environment for a dynamic company like ours. We’re excited about our expansion, and looking forward to hosting a great event here on August 9th.”

Outsell’s senior executive team and other team members will be on hand at the event to showcase the company’s new office space and provide information on Outsell’s digital marketing solutions. Following the ribbon cutting, led by Mayor R.T. Rybak at 4pm Central time, guests are invited to join Outsell for drinks, hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment till 9pm.
