On Cadence’s decision to relocate, Chairman and CEO Paul B. Murphy Jr. said, “Our strategic decision to move to Park Towers offers us enhanced efficiencies, more opportunities for collaboration, greater visibility, and cost savings. With this move, we’ll embrace a more dynamic and agile office, giving our associates more flexibility in how they work and fostering teamwork with more collaborative spaces, both formal and informal.”
