Developer and asset manager, MEPC, has today announced Burendo, a fast-growing IT firm that specialises in agile business transformation, as its latest occupier to join the Wellington Place community.
Following a period of growth and expansion, the move will mark a new chapter for the tech trailblazer, which boasts a 140 strong team. Burendo is the latest firm to join the growing tech hub based at Wellington Place, which includes, NHS Digital, Sky Betting and Gaming, Netpremacy and most recently, Lexis Nexis.
Burendo, meaning ‘blended’ in Japanese, tackles organisation transformation and technology delivery in short ‘sprints’ or iterations to ensure the solution addresses the client’s digital needs more quickly and effectively.
Established in 2018, the business has worked with numerous household names including Yorkshire Building Society, the NHS and William Hill. It is projected to turnover £18m in the current financial year.
The 2,271 sq ft of office space in 10 Wellington Place will provide an environment which encourages collaborative working, whilst giving Burendo access to a like-minded business community at the development and a host of great amenities and initiatives such as restaurants, wellbeing webinars and a running club, all of which aid staff wellbeing.
Paul Pavia, commercial director at MEPC, said: “We’re thrilled that Burendo has chosen Wellington Place as its new home in Leeds. The company have gone from strength to strength, and we hope that their move to the development will help to further facilitate this, as they join a host of other tech centric businesses.
“We’ve seen a real increase in demand for first-class office accommodation in the tech sector specifically and we’re proud of the hub that Wellington Place is becoming.”
Austen Bell, Operations Director at Burendo, said: “Wellington Place is increasingly becoming known as the go to tech hub in Leeds, and this was a real driver for us when it came to selecting the development as the home for our new head office. We want to be part of a bigger community and be in close proximity to likeminded businesses and people.
“We’ve grown significantly on our short history and want to prepare for the future. Having the best office space will allow Burendo to attract further talent and provide our team members with a world class environment in which to work.”
