Nashville, TN, September 24, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- The Nashville-based creative marketing agency, Astute Communications
, is making a big move.
Anna Stout, the founder and president of Astute, today announced that on September 9, 2019, she completed the purchase of a commercial building for the agency’s new office. For several years, Astute has worked in a multi-unit office rental. By October 2019, it will be operating from its new address at 2631 Grandview Ave. - a freestanding building in the Woodbine area of Nashville. The office is two miles from the Nashville Fairgrounds, the chosen location for the city’s highly-anticipated Major League Soccer stadium, and a six-minute drive to downtown. Astute enlisted Tee Patterson from the brokerage Chas. Hawkins Co., Inc. to represent them in the purchase of their new office. The move will support the agency’s growth.
Stout established and ran Astute independently from 2013 to 2015. In 2016, she began hiring a full-time staff and the agency has since experienced continuous organic growth without any outside funding. The new office will enable Astute to host community events and build an environment that fosters creativity.
“With only 0.1% of creative agencies owned by women, I know this is an opportunity to show Nashville and the digital marketing world what women-led companies can do,” Stout says. “Astute is completely bootstrapped. Every bit of growth we have achieved has paid for itself. And now, all that hard work has paid for our building. This is a big milestone for us, and I’m so excited to be able to do this for our team. Everyone has been involved in the planning process–thinking about what their ideal workspace looks like, even helping choose furniture and decor. We’re working together really deliberately to create an environment that we all love. We’re incorporating a quiet room for focused work or meditation, and a flexible indoor/outdoor space so they can enjoy the fresh air throughout the day. Our team will finally have room to move around. This is a huge moment for the agency. I can’t wait to see what we do next, and what opportunities this move will open up for us. With this purchase, we’re staking our claim in Nashville.”
