DrivingSales Expands into New Salt Lake City-Area Offices

Business intelligence and data company for the automotive industry moves into Utah corporate headquarters as company experiences tremendous growth

Salt Lake City, UT – September 24, 2012 – DrivingSales, a leading business intelligence and data company for the auto industry, today announced that it has established new corporate headquarters, including a new studio for its Web TV channel, in Sandy, Utah. The company, which is on track for its third consecutive year of triple-digit revenue growth, has grown its employee base by 62% in just the last six months. The company moves into the expanded offices just as it gears up for its 4th annual DrivingSales Executive Summit, a signature event for the company, which has doubled in size year-over-year into the leading and most authoritative auto industry event.

“DrivingSales is committed to the success of all our auto industry clients, and our new headquarters and studio in Sandy, Utah will allow us to even better serve our industry with the most up-to-date, profit-building information through all media channels,” said DrivingSales CEO and founder Jared Hamilton.

The new DrivingSales corporate headquarters in Sandy, which is part of the Salt Lake City metro area is set up to house the company’s three distinct divisions: DrivingSales Data, DrivingSales University and DrivingSales Media, and designed to enable classroom style training, large meetings and auto dealership events. The new headquarters include a new DrivingSales TV studio, which can accommodate the filming of the company’s online interactive content, as well as webinars, teleconferences, and more. With multiple open spaces throughout, the new headquarters reflects the collaborative and interactive online environment typified by the company’s flagship site, DrivingSales.com.

Earlier this year, DrivingSales received a 2012 “Top 25 Under Five” award from the Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum (UVEF) – for the second year in a row – which spotlights outstanding entrepreneurs and start-up companies in Utah, as well as a Stevie® Award in the ‘Most Innovative Company of the Year’ category in the 10th Annual American Business Awards.  In addition to this year’s awards, DrivingSales was also named a 2011 Fast 50 “Emerging Eight” company by Utah Business magazine, and received an Interactive Media Award (IMA) for Outstanding Achievement in the ‘Automobile’ website category. Additionally, DrivingSales was named one of ten social media gambits for 2009 by Automotive News and one of the Top 10 Companies to Watch in 2010 by Auto Success Magazine.
