Reverb Grows Chicago Office

Reverb held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in May for its 10,000-square-foot office expansion. The new space, which more than doubles the size of the company's headquarters in Chicago, will accommodate the music marketplace's continued growth. This year, Reverb estimates it will increase headcount by 50 percent and close the year with approximately $600 million in sales, according to a company statement.

"In the last five years, Reverb has connected countless musicians with their dream gear, helped brick-and-mortar music instrument retailers find new streams of revenue, enabled motivated music lovers to build their own online businesses and more — but we're far from finished," said David Kalt, founder and CEO at Reverb, during the event. "As we continue to expand internationally, grow new offerings — like Reverb LP, our new record marketplace — and more, we'll continue to add to our team, and this new space supports and is a tribute to that growth."

Video production studio

The new office features a sound-balanced and acoustically engineered video production studio as well as additional meeting and call rooms.

"Nearly every detail of the space is reflective of Reverb as a company," said lead designer and All Things Esque's Catherine Nordloh. "The meetings rooms all have clear glass doors to represent one of the company's core values: transparency."
