Taylor Moving New York Headquarters to Empire State Building

Leader in Lifestyle, Sports and Entertainment Public Relations Relocates to Accommodate Steady Growth

New York, N.Y., January 24, 2008 – Taylor, the global leader in lifestyle, sports and entertainment public relations, announced today that it is relocating its New York operations to a new, 25,000-square-foot office in the “World’s Most Famous Office Building,” the Empire State Building.

The company plans to be fully operational in its new space by early February.

Taylor’s new global headquarters on the 38th floor of historic 350 Fifth Avenue is just down the street from its longtime headquarters at 14 Penn Plaza, where the company has resided since 1996. Custom designed to complement Taylor’s collaborative culture and meet the needs of 100 professionals in its New York home office, the contemporary space allows the company to better serve its select client partner portfolio of category-leading consumer brands.

“The relocation of our New York office underscores our commitment to provide a world-class working environment for our dedicated and growing family at Taylor and best serve the needs of our select roster of client partners,” said Tony Signore, CEO and Managing Partner, Taylor. “To be headquartered in one of the world’s most renowned architectural icons is a source of great pride and achievement for Taylor. The Empire State Building is a global symbol of success and leadership.”

The expansive, brightly lit space offers a host of features and resources that will enhance Taylor’s workplace environment and help deliver value-laden business building solutions to its client partners. Among these features are a 750-square-foot “Great Room,” which serves as a central gathering point for lunches, staff meetings and special events; a full-service state-of-the-art edit and satellite broadcast production studio; and a research library.

The expansion of its New York headquarters comes at the heels of a historic 2007 for Taylor – one in which the company unveiled its new corporate identity; established full-service operations in Chicago, its fifth major market; relocated its fast-growing Charlotte operations to a new 10,000-square-foot office; and was honored as Midsize Agency of the Year by two leading industry media organizations, The Holmes Report and PR News.
