Motive Power Continues to Expand
As Motive Power expands our client base and geographic reach, we have now opened footholds in both Sacramento and Los Angeles. Our Sacramento site is located conveniently in the mid-town area of Sacramento with easy access to our current clients, as well as being nicely positioned for future Sacramento work. In Los Angeles, we have chosen a location in the Century City district which is close to downtown and LAX, as well as offering us a base in Los Angeles county. Our newest office is in Danville, and our Fresno office has been operating full tilt since last fall.

Motive Power's Fresno Headquarters

Motive Power recently secured a space at the Iron Bird lofts in downtown Fresno—this location will be the third office for this growing company, the largest outside of the headquarters in San Francisco. The firm has been supporting clients in the Fresno area for the past three years but is now ready to expand with a more permanent location. The downtown office will give Motive Power a flexible space to meet with clients, support the growing Fresno team, and host events such as ArtHop.

"The space fit us perfectly, merging our company's forward thinking culture with our local team's Fresno roots," says Jason Harris, Fresno Area Lead with Motive Power. Harris joined the company as the first Fresno based employee in 2012 and now manages one of Motive Power's largest contracts from the Fresno office. Harris went on to say, "Iron Bird is one of the new, recognizable landmarks in Fresno helping to reinvigorate downtown. We are looking forward to expanding our company as Fresno continues to make positive steps in rebuilding downtown."
