The Direct Agents culture has always been built on camaraderie, teamwork, diversity, and of course, plenty of fun. This summer, we’ve been able to increase our in-office capacity with an amazing 95% vaccinated team. In turn, this has allowed our agency to scale dramatically across LA and NY.
2021 has been a tremendous year of growth for Direct Agents. We feel fortunate to have not only increased our client roster, but to also have seen our team grow by 40% YoY, with 33 new team members (and counting) hired in 2021! Our commitment to diversity is stronger than ever with our most recent new hires being the most diverse group yet with 68% identifying as people of color.
“We are excited to continue letting our diversity of thought shine at the forefront of our agency culture and see the innovation that this next generation of ‘Shapers of Change’ will bring forth,” noted Josh Boaz, Managing Partner and Co-Founder at our recent company meeting.
This growth boom has also led to the expansion of our NYC headquarters. Come January 2022, the team will be moving to a new office called “The Acceleration Hub”, located right in the heart of Flatiron District. With this move, Direct Agents has doubled office square footage and now has space for 100+ team members.
We are excited to keep up this momentum and are looking forward to what the rest of 2021 holds!
