Logistics Provider Spot Expands with Chicago Office

Logistics company Spot said Friday it would open a Chicago office, its sixth in the U.S., this October. The company signed a new, 31,000-square-foot lease for the 11th floor at 24 E. Washington St., also known as the Marshall Field & Company Building.  

The new office will accommodate Spot’s exponential growth and further support the company’s hiring goals by leveraging the area’s diverse talent pool. Spot plans to hire 200 employees over the next two years, initially focusing on sales and technology positions.  

“We chose Chicago because of the city’s exceptionally strong talent network,” said Spot co-founder Andrew Elsener. 

Cresa’s Allen Rogoway, Michael Marrion, and Tim O’Brien negotiated the lease on behalf of Spot. The Telos Group’s Jack O’Brien and Caroline Colnon represented the owner of 24 E. Washington St., Brookfield Properties. Architecture firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative will design the office space.
