Charlotte-based Kingsmen Software, a Capital Markets software development company, consolidates its sales and corporate offices to have four times the space under one roof – a very cool roof.
The company has relocated to Camden Cotton Mill, which was built in 1880 and was Charlotte’s first mill. Kingsmen Software now shares in one of the two remaining historic buildings at 5th and Graham Streets where the mill resided. The mill is a gorgeous loft space with true appeal in the original windows, exposed brick, huge columns and wooden floors, and is only four blocks from Tryon Street and Kingsmen’s clients.
Managing Partner and Head of Client Delivery Kevin Carney is thrilled about moving to an office large enough to accommodate growth “while still close to the banks, and more importantly the people that Kingsmen services.” With the true process visibility Kingsmen gives clients, Kevin has short update meetings with multiple clients in a day. “Being centrally located near almost all of our clients was essential; the aesthetics of the building are the icing on the cake.”
“We are growing fast,” says Managing Partner Micah Minarik. “We will be adding Craftsmen (highly-skilled developers) to our team and it’s a phenomenal workplace for recruiting. At four times our previous office space, the mill office can handle the growth and new hires that Kingsmen Software expects.” Spacious individual work areas with organic desks and multiple “team getaway” conference rooms make the office comfortable. Head of Marketing Heather Cleevely says, “While the mill is over a century old, the workspaces are refreshingly new, and the combination is magical. Working in this new space has been a dream – and don’t forget the chocolate.”
Cleevely refers to Crave Dessert Bar, a longtime resident of Camden Cotton Mill. Crave needs little introduction to most Charlotteans, who have been enjoying the decadent offerings of the high-end dessert and cocktail bar since its opening in 2009. Clint Medlock, General Manager of Crave, says of the move, “We’re excited to have the Kingsmen Software team as our new neighbors. After spending some time with a few of their people, it’s clear we’ll end up sharing more than just a common entryway. We plan to share some quality times with them as well.”
