Mariner Finance is expanding and relocating its corporate headquarters to 8211 Town Center Drive in Nottingham, Md., according to Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF).
The consumer-loan company will occupy the former William Scottsman building, for a total of 69,401 square feet, within the next few months, moving from its 15,000-square-foot space on Clinton Street in Canton. Included in the lease is well-placed building signage along I-95. Property renovations have commenced, comprising a remodel of the interiors, lobby and restrooms; interior and exterior painting; as well as new elevators and landscaping.
“Mariner Finance is on track to more than double in size by the end of next year due to its growth from a smoothly run operation,” said Eddie Goldmeier, senior managing director for NGKF, who represented Mariner in the transaction and represents the company in its retail leases around the country. “This space offers a location with the stature and prominence befitting that success and its contribution to the local business community.”
President and CEO of Mariner Finance Josh Johnson remarked, “This new office space will allow us to accommodate the additional personnel needed to support our growing operation at a location that is convenient to our employees. We believe that having the opportunity to design it from the ground up will give us a home that fully embodies the Mariner culture, yielding a more positive and productive working environment for our people. We are naturally very excited to see it come to fruition.”
Mariner Finance originally sought headquarters space between 15,000 square feet and 20,000 square feet, but changed its direction as it experienced rapid growth. This year, it plans to increase its branch locations in new territories throughout the country.
