B. E. Smith Moves to New Headquarters at Lenexa City Center East

LENEXA, Kan. (November 26, 2012) — B. E. Smith, the only full service healthcare leadership solutions firm, today announced it has moved into its newly developed headquarters, located at the Lenexa City Center East development in Lenexa, Kansas, a suburb located approximately 20 miles from Kansas City. This state-of-the-art office building, which includes two floors of work space, will accommodate more than 200 B. E. Smith employees, interims and consultants, as well as contain ample meeting spaces for the company’s clients. In designing its new company headquarters, B. E. Smith first identified the primary needs of both its employees and its client base, and set out to design a space that would directly address these. As such, the new office features an open floor plan to foster interdepartmental collaboration and was designed based on employees’ workflows to enhance overall efficiency and performance. The new company headquarters also features a high-tech training center, space to hold client conferences, and a showcase high-tech executive conference room dedicated to the late B. E. “Pete” Smith, the founder of the company. “For the past 34 years, our company has been dedicated to demonstrating leadership in healthcare by establishing best practices and supporting them with innovative thinking and technology, both internally and externally,” said Doug Smith, President and CEO, B. E. Smith. “We are very excited to take up residence in a new home that we have been able to design from the ground up applying the same ‘out of the box’ thinking and planning that we use across our business. With state-of-the-art equipment, an open floor plan and state-of-the-art design, we will be able to service our clients and our employees more efficiently and effectively than ever before.” The Lenexa City Center was developed during the recent recession which put the plans of many of the participating companies in flux, leaving the development complex scarcely occupied. B. E. Smith’s purchase of this 74,634 square-foot building has helped fuel new interest in the development, which includes over 1 million square-feet of office space and additional residential and retail space. “While looking to relocate our headquarters, we were determined to remain in the Lenexa area, which has always been very supportive of the company and has faced some tough challenges during recent economic downturn,” said Smith. “Once we purchased this building, we saw an influx of interest in the entire development, and could not be happier that this project has helped to jumpstart the local economy.” B. E. Smith will officially move into its new headquarters on Saturday, November 17. About B. E. Smith: Founded in 1978, B. E.
