Celtic, Inc. will jump into 2016 with a new office space in the Landmark Building in Milwaukee’s Third Ward.
The marketing and advertising agency will relocate its operations to downtown Milwaukee from office space it leases in Brookfield at 330 S. Executive Drive, Suite 206.
The agency’s new office site is located at 316 N. Milwaukee Street, Suite 350, and occupies about 1,000 square feet less than its current office. While the Brookfield office covers 4,529 square feet, the new office totals more than 3,500 square feet.
Celtic will lease the space from Joseph Property Development, LLC.
The company, which has 15 full-time employees, has called Brookfield home since the 1990s, according to president and owner Brian Meehan.
“Brookfield has been a great home for us for many, many years,” Meehan said.
Eyeing the future, he sees downtown Milwaukee as “a better place” for Celtic and its creative projects.
“We kind of thrive on energy, and we just feel that being down there is just going to better position us as a business,” Meehan said.
Celtic also aims to immerse itself and its work in the “exciting”’ business developments downtown, Meehan said, pointing to the construction of Northwestern Mutual’s new headquarters as a key example.
“There’s been a resurgence and a revitalization downtown, and we want to be a part of that,” he said.
Meehan also believes that the new office location will help Celtic attract and retain top talent already living downtown.
“We just think long term it’s going to be much easier for us to find the talent we need because they’re already there,” he said.
Celtic will move its operations to the Third Ward during the last week of December and will be ready to run out of its new space on Jan. 1.
