Salt Lake City—Amid explosive company growth, Connolly iHealth Technologies cut the ribbon in their new downtown office, which company officials already plan to expand.
The company, which handles payment transactions analytics for retail and healthcare companies, opened its second office in Salt Lake, which will be specifically geared towards serving the company’s health care clients in the Western United States. An existing office, in another downtown location, serves retail clients.
The office is also a reflection of the company’s tremendous growth.
“We have new people starting every Monday,” said Cory Deagle, vice president of Connolly iHealth Technologies audit operations for Salt Lake City. “It’s a very exciting time for our company.”
John Olson, vice president of general counsel for Connolly, said he had been with the company for two years, and already has a longer tenure than almost half of the employees. The growth is such that the company just finished construction in their office space but signed a lease for an additional 5,000 square feet to expand the office.
Ryan Mooney, senior vice president of Connolly iHealth Technologies, said the extra space would facilitate up to an additional 62 or so desks, besides the 116 seats currently set up in the office. The office is expected to provide 145 long-term jobs in Salt Lake City.
Mooney said when he started working at the company 18 years ago, the company consisted of about 55 people. Now, he said, that number has swelled to more than 4,000.
“Salt Lake’s a great place,” he said. “We’ve seen enormous amounts of growth [in the company] and we’re trying to train [new employees] well. We’ve found good people [to hire] here.”
The company handles around $1 trillion in transactions annually, he said.
Rep. Chris Stewart also spoke at the event, and thanked Connolly iHealth Technologies for their investment in the state.
“You’re a great company and we love what you do,” he said. “We’re honored and very pleased to have you here.”
