Dallas, a Great Choice for Company Headquarters
When considering a location for the home office of Alsbridge, Inc., Ben Trowbridge chose Dallas. Alsbridge, Inc. is a leading provider of outsourcing solutions to companies around the world. The company was built by Mr. Trowbridge in 2002 and initially known as The Trowbridge Group. Since then it has merged with ALS Consulting, located in London, and evolved into the company it is today, one of 2011’s leading outsourcing advisory firms.The city of Dallas was a logical choice for the Alsbridge, Inc. headquarters. Dallas is a large, sprawling city of over one million residents, and is centrally located about halfway between the East and West Coasts of the United States. Its Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is the world’s third busiest air transportation center, offering over 1,600 flights per day to locations all over the world. A smaller but popular air transit location, Dallas Love Field Airport, is also conveniently stationed only 10 minutes from the downtown area, and the city is a global hub for industry. As a leading center for business and conventions, Dallas is home to 12 Fortune 500 companies including J.C. Penney Company, Inc., AT&T, Exxon Mobil Corporation, and TXU Energy Retail Company LLC. Dallas boasts well-known and respected professional football team The Dallas Cowboys, as well as the popular baseball team The Texas Rangers. The city’s professional basketball team, the Dallas Mavericks, holds conference championships for 2006 and 2011. Over the years, Dallas has emerged as a strong economic and industrial center providing reasonably priced labor along with an abundance of prime real estate at costs well below the national average. In addition, it offers a rich cultural experience with museums, art, and architecture to rival any city. Ben Trowbridge and Alsbridge, Inc. plan to continue to call Dallas home for many years to come. Though the company continues to expand, reaching around the globe to provide benchmarking and shared-services consulting to businesses from London to Hong Kong, this vibrant city remains an ideal home.
