NASHVILLE (CelebrityAccess) — Gibson Guitars announced plans to relocate their global headquarters to the heart of Music City.
The company plans to open new offices at Cummins Station (209 10th Avenue South) a historic property in downtown Nashville. The relocation will take place by the end of 2019 and when completed, the new HQ will serve as home base for more than 100 of Gibson’s employees.
According to Gibson, the company is focused on providing “modern work amenities” for its headquarters staff as well as providing a venue for guitar showrooms for artists and more options to showcase the Gibson brand and story to the public in the heart of the music community.
“Over the past few years we have turned our iconic building into a modern-day solution for companies who thrive on creativity and a connection to Nashville,” says Zach Liff, owner, and landlord of Cummins Station. “We are excited and honored that the iconic Gibson brand has selected Cummins Station for their new HQ.”
Gibson exited chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in October 2018 and announced a new leadership team that includes CEO James “JC” Curleigh, as well as chief merchant officer Cesar Gueikian, chief financial officer Kim Mattoon and chief production officer Christian Schmitz.
“I’m proud of the progress we have made re-building Gibson and I’m excited to move our new Headquarters to the heart of Nashville,” says James “JC” Curleigh, President and CEO of Gibson. “Cummins Station is the perfect choice for our expansion needs, our cultural evolution and our connection to Nashville, Music City U.S.A.”
