After seeing revenue grow 58 percent during the past three years, Netelligent Corp. is moving to a new 21,000-square-foot headquarters at Chesterfield Village in Chesterfield, Mo.
The information technology firm is more than doubling the size of its headquarters in relocating to Chesterfield Ridge Center at 16401 Swingley Ridge Road. Sachs Properties is the developer of the 1,500-acre Chesterfield Village, the first master-planned community in metro St. Louis.
“We closed out a great year in 2012 with $33 million in revenue,” said Aaron Stone, co-founder and chief executive officer of Netelligent.
Last fall, the firm opened its newest data center in Singapore. It also operates data centers in St. Louis and Denver. The firm provides networking, telephone, collaboration/video, data center/servers/storage, virtualization and wireless solutions.
Stone said the firm currently employs 70 people after adding 34 percent to its workforce in 2012. Last year, it was ranked number 471 in its industry on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies and is one of 39 St. Louis firms to make the list. It was also ranked number two among top workplaces in 2012 by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Designed by Nehring Design, the new headquarters will feature a private workout room, a recreation and game room, a large kitchen space with tables and an onsite cafeteria. It also includes an enhanced operations center and more meeting and collaboration space.
“We’re looking to attract and retain the best and brightest,” said Stone. “Relocating to Chesterfield Village gives us greater access to its many amenities including restaurants, shopping and cultural attractions.”

The seven-story, 154,000-square-foot Chesterfield Ridge Center is now 99-percent leased. Meanwhile, Sachs Properties reports that its office and retail portfolio in Chesterfield Village is now 92-percent leased.
Since its launch by Sachs Properties in 1967, more than $3 billion has been invested in the creation of Chesterfield Village. Today, Sachs owns 1 million square feet of office and retail space there hosting more than 200 businesses. A total of 2,600 homes are also found in Chesterfield Village.
