City leaders to join Cicero Group for ground breaking of new headquarters at the Gateway on Wednesday

Mayor Jackie Biskupski and Salt Lake City Council Member Derek Kitchen, will join Cicero Group CEO Randy Shumway, along with other civic and business leaders on Wednesday, June 22 at 9:00 am to break ground on Cicero Group’s new global business headquarters at the Gateway in downtown Salt Lake City. Construction on Cicero Group’s headquarters, involving a major renovation of existing buildings at the north end of the Gateway, is scheduled to be completed by the end of the summer.
 
“The promotion and growth of businesses currently in Salt Lake City is one of my top economic priorities,” said Mayor Biskupski. “I am excited to see what Cicero Group’s move to the Gateway will bring for the area, and grateful they chose to invest and expand their headquarters in Salt Lake City.”
 
This project is one of many revitalization efforts being undertaken throughout the Gateway District, and will bring hundreds of employees to the area. The financing for the project was provided in part by the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City.
 
“We are excited to contribute to the growth of the downtown community and look forward to a long future here,” said Randy Shumway, Cicero Group CEO. “Moving our global headquarters to the Gateway is a perfect fit for Cicero Group as we continue to grow. We are constructing a cutting-edge space that is a perfect reflection of our firm’s innovative culture.”
