Calamos Investments, a leading global asset manager, has signed a multiyear lease for the top floors of Fulton East, an innovative new building at 215 N. Peoria Street, situated in Chicago’s vibrant Fulton Market area. The announcement was made by John Koudounis, Calamos President and CEO. Calamos’ new location will be an addition to the firm’s headquarters campus in Naperville. This Chicago office will host up to 100 people that will include flex space for some of the Calamos leadership team, employees, and clients from all over the world, as well as function as a central meeting and event space for Calamos’ growing businesses. The downtown location will deepen the firm’s existing ties to the city, broaden access to potential business partners and clients, and diversify its Chicago-based footprint.
Calamos Investments, which began its legacy on Michigan Avenue in Chicago, has a longstanding commitment to the city and is dedicated to deepening its ties with this new location. The firm is a lead sponsor of the Chicago Bulls, and the first company to have its logo on the stadium floor. As Founder of the Chicago CEO COVID-19 Coalition, John Koudounis united Chicago business leaders in a humanitarian campaign for COVID-19 relief and recovery benefiting ten Chicago-based charities. The organization raised more than $1.5 million via its “Sweet Home Chicago” telethon, which included an appearance by Mayor Lightfoot.
