SNL Financial opens Richmond office
SNL Financial, the Charlottesville-based banking info powerhouse that already has offices in such diverse spots as London, Pakistan, and Hoboken, has just announced the opening of an office at Innsbrook in Richmond's far West End because Charlottesville's labor pool just can't keep up with SNL's insatiable need for talent.
In the release announcing the opening, Tom Corbitt, SNL Financial’s Chief Administrative Officer, says: “In the past 12-18 months, we’ve pulled nearly 40% of our Charlottesville-based new hires from the Richmond market. It’s a key talent pipeline for us that will help sustain our continued double digit revenue growth in the foreseeable future. This new office isn’t just great for recruiting, but it also gives a few hours a day back to our existing employees who regularly make the commute from Richmond to Charlottesville.”
Headquartered in a rehabbed LBJ-era government building downtown, SNL–- which reports on banking, financial services, insurance, real estate, energy, and media/communications businesses–- has more than 400 Central Virginia employees, more than 1,300 worldwide. The company claims annual revenues in excess of $100 million.
