Office Revolution Expands Presence through the Midwest, Acquires Furniture Dealership Division of GDOT Design, Cleveland

Office Revolution, a leading contract furniture provider for commercial environments, announced today the expansion of its presence in Ohio as a result of acquiring the furniture dealership division of Cleveland commercial interior provider, GDOT Design. The move to expand in Ohio will accelerate the company’s growth strategy as it leverages the area’s growing population and more than $2B of recent development.

Several private-sector real estate projects are underway throughout the city, including the 36-story Sherwin-Williams Global Headquarters, accommodating more than 3,000 employees; Thunderbird, a 21-acre mixed-use development, of which Great Lakes Brewing Company has purchased an 8-acre plot; the 51,000 square foot Cleveland Foundation Offices; the New Cleveland Public Library and numerous clinics and institutions related to medical research and development.

“We’re very excited about expanding our design team and customer base, further positioning Office Revolution as a leader in contract furniture services,” said Bernie Donaldson, founding principal, Office Revolution. “This alliance with GDOT Design brings a wealth of experience and an extensive portfolio from a fellow Teknion dealership.” The combined organization boasts several hundred clients and partners across the commercial office, healthcare, education, multi-family residential, senior living and hospitality verticals.

Sean Regan, who has served the Cleveland commercial interiors market for more than 30 years, will lead business development as director of sales in Cleveland. “Sean joins us with extensive experience in systems furniture, architecture, design and general contracting, as well as local market knowledge, a skill set that will help us continue to grow our brand throughout the Midwest,” said Donaldson.

The expansion to Cleveland marks the fourth location in the Midwest market for Office Revolution, which is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois and has locations in suburban Chicago; Columbus, Ohio and Raleigh, North Carolina.
