Targeted Metrics Sets Up Shop in Kansas City

The national marketing firm plans to bring more jobs to the area.

Targeted Metrics, an information and services company, has selected the KC region to locate its headquarters and sales operations center, making a $5.8 million capital investment and creating up to 535 new jobs over the next two years.

“We were impressed with Kansas City from day one of our location search,” says Targeted Metrics Director Mike McGuire. “The Kansas City market offers us a tremendous growth opportunity plus access to an existing available skilled workforce that values high productivity.”

Targeted Metrics evaluated multiple locations across the U.S. before selecting the KC region. The company will initially lease 15,000 square feet at 1504 NW Vivion Rd. Over the next two years, Targeted Metrics plans to expand to 60,000 square feet and hire 100 percent of its employees in KC.

“I’m so proud of this announcement because our community earned the business of Targeted Metrics based on the reputation of our workforce and the propensity of our local economy for growth,” Kansas City, Mo., Mayor Sly James says. “All of that shows that Kansas City is making a name for itself that is paying off.”
