Vevo Chooses London for its European Headquarters
Follows other major tech corporations committing to UK investment post-Brexit
Vevo, the world’s leading music video and entertainment platform with offices in New York, San Francisco, Berlin, Los Angeles, Portland and Chicago, has chosen London as the location for its new European headquarters. The company will make its home in the Lighthouse Building in London’s Kings Cross.
The grade II listed building was built in 1884 and is known for its unusual architecture and lighthouse-like tower. The 16, 292 sq. ft. space is currently undergoing renovation and is set to open in June. Design plans reveal a performance space, editing suite, café and rooftop terrace spanning four floors.
Rajesh Agrawal, London’s deputy mayor for business, said: “The news that Vevo is to open new offices that can double its presence in the capital is a fantastic boost for our already thriving tech and creative sectors. As well as being a world leader for creativity, London boasts fertile ground for tech businesses, from the smallest start-ups to the biggest global players. Following announcements by other giants in this sector – including Amazon, Google and Facebook – this is further proof that London remains open for business and open to investment by the world’s most exciting and innovative companies.”
Jon Gisby, Managing Director of Europe, Vevo, added: “Vevo has bold ambitions to be the music video and entertainment destination of choice for audiences and artists, and our continued growth and investment in Europe is an important piece to our strategy. Finding a new office building that has the space required for our growing team, and the facilities to support our creative needs, further reinforces our long-term commitment to London, the UK and the European market overall.”
