GTCR, a leading private equity firm founded in 1980, announced today the opening of offices in New York City and West Palm Beach, Florida, establishing new locations to support its investment capabilities and broaden its talent acquisition initiatives. GTCR’s offices in Chicago will continue to serve as the firm’s headquarters and center of operations and will continue to account for the majority of the firm’s employees.
“The opening of the New York and West Palm Beach locations will help support and expand investing activities, and this growth is critical to our efforts to continue to recruit a talented and diverse group to undertake our investment strategy,” said Collin Roche, Managing Director and Co-CEO of GTCR. “This is a natural evolution for the firm as we look to grow and attract new professionals, while staying true to our investment approach and values. Our goal will be to maintain our culture of collaboration, inclusivity and ingenuity in these new locations.”
The New York office is currently located at 450 Park Avenue and the West Palm Beach location is 515 N Flagler Drive. GTCR also plans to move to offices at 425 Park Ave in New York following the build out of two floors the firm has leased in that building.
