Hogan Consulting Group, a presence in the Indianapolis market since 2006, has opened a managed services sales and customer support office in Carmel. Located at 12220 North Meridian St., Suite 165, it’s the company’s second Indiana location.
“Over the years, the number of employees to support our operations has grown, and we have found the market there to have an excellent talent pool,” said Michael Hogan, president of Hogan Consulting Group. “The quality of life and amenities that are offered in the Carmel area seem to attract the kinds of people we are seeking with the skill set we need to grow our business.”
The Carmel office has six full-time employees but is sized to accommodate additional staff as the company grows.
“Carmel is planned to become our second network operations center that will service our managed clients with 24/7 monitoring and response. As clients are added, we will need to expand our service and sales teams in the area,” Hogan said. “Our current plan is to build or buy the next office in two years, which will be built out to our specifications to support a larger staff and operations team, similar to our NOC in Chesterton.”
The Carmel location also offers a central location for team meetings for Hogan employees based in Louisville, Chesterton, Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio.
“We have clients across the U.S., so we wanted an office that offered convenience. While not next to the airport, the location can be reached in less than an hour from the airport,” Hogan said. “The area offers wonderful lodging, dining and restaurants with relatively low congestion.”
Hogan Consulting is a provider of end-user computing, security, cloud and artificial intelligence consulting services. Headquartered in Chesterton, the Carmel office is Hogan’s fourth physical office space.
“Our current plan is to focus on expanding in our existing markets where we already have a presence. With that being said, we serve clients across the U.S., and our expansion into new markets where we see a real need is always on our radar,” Hogan said. “Enabling people to work anywhere is in Hogan’s DNA. That is why we have employees all across the Midwest, to the U.S. Virgin Islands and back to California.”
