Ramsey Solutions hosted two ribbon-cutting ceremonies on Friday in celebration if its new $70 million corporate headquarters, paid in cash, on Reams Fleming Boulevard.
The six-story headquarters has 200,000 square feet of office space, including the studio where finance expert and radio personality Dave Ramsey hosts the “The Dave Ramsey Show.” More expansion is set to be completed in the coming years.
Approximately 850 people currently work at the company’s headquarters, but plans are in place to grow to 1,000 team members in the next 18 months.
The company hosted two ribbon-cutting ceremonies, one in the morning and another in the late afternoon, with many local elected officials in attendance. Special guest speakers included Governor Bill Lee and U.S Senator Marsha Blackburn.
Both praised Ramsey Solutions for not only its economic impact, but also the impact it has in helping change many lives.
“What an incredible space you have created for the people that work here, and also for those who don’t work here,” Lee said. “It has really become a tourist destination.”
Blackburn praised Ramsey’s mission statement of “giving hope” to millions who are struggling with financial debt.
“It’s exciting to be here to participate with Dave and his team and to see what’s happening here at Ramsey Solutions,” she said. “People are coming are from all over the country, millions of Americans, who are finding out how to deal with their life and their finances.”
Ramsey described the new headquarters as a “living, breathing testimony and symbol that God is in the business of restoring.”
“I am a life that was changed by Him,” he said.
Ramsey Solutions tracks how many people it has served, and to date, that number is over 2.4 million. Ramsey credits his team for the accomplishment.
“They’re impacting millions and millions of lives across this country every single month,” he said.
