Echo Global Logistics Inc., a provider of technology-enabled transportation and supply chain management services, announced it signed a lease with Lincoln Property Co. for a 11,114-square-foot office space at the Camelback Square development in Scottsdale, Ariz. Located at 6991 East Camelback Road, Camelback Square is a 172,690-square-foot three-story building in downtown Scottsdale.

In the summer of 2011, Echo Global Logistics acquired Advantage Transport, a truckload transportation brokerage firm, and retained the firm’s employees after the acquisition. Echo Global Logistics then began the process of reviewing various office locations in order to facilitate the growth of staff. With 54 current employees, the company plans on reaching a capacity headcount of about 120 full-time employees in the new office.

“We are very pleased to select our office space at Camelback Square, a premier building located right in the heart of Scottsdale,” says Doug Waggoner, chief executive officer of Echo Global Logistics. “After our 2011 purchase of Advantage Transport, we merged our operations and needed to expand to a larger location in order to manage the newly retained staff members. Scottsdale is a vibrant community that offers a talented pool of professionals and many great amenities that make it an exciting place to work.”
