This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet
AllianceTexas is a mixed-use development in Fort Worth that first attracted the financial services company in 2007. When Mercedes-Benz Financial decided it was time to improve and grow its facilities, it could have moved anywhere in DFW, but chose to open a facility in AllianceTexas.
The firm celebrated the grand opening of the new business center last week.
"At Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, we strive to set standards for corporate culture, and believe our workplace must be reflective of our high brand standards and the cultural modernization of our company," Mercedes-Benz Financial Services President and CEO Peter Zieringer said. "The opening of our Fort Worth Business Center is an investment in our talented workforce, in the transformation of our company and in the purpose of who we are and how we deliver world-class service to our customers and dealers."
Mercedes-Benz Financial Services has been in Texas since 1991. The build-out of the center was done by developer and owner Hillwood, architect and designer BOKA Powell, JLL Fort Worth Project and Development Services, SmithGroup Dallas, Detroit Workplace Studios and Cushman & Wakefield as site selection and lease negotiation leader.
