Optimal Moves to Baltimore's Emerging Technology Center
For Immediate Release: May 1, 2004
Baltimore, MD -- Dr. Mark Turner, Founder & President of Optimal Solutions Group (Optimal) has moved his economic and social policy research firm to Baltimore's Emerging Technology Center (ETC) at Johns Hopkins Eastern.
The new facility provides more space for the rapidly expanding firm. The ETC offers shared conference rooms, audio-visual equipment, Internet access, new Cisco IP Phones, and use of a high-speed printer.
“Originally, we were going to expand our former office space and buy new furniture. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find out that moving to the new ETC yielded a tremendous savings for Optimal while enabling us to acquire additional space and wonderful amenities,” states Optimal Vice President Tracye Turner. “M&T Bank donated the furniture and the monthly lease at ETC includes local phone service, utilities, wireless Internet access, conference calling and 24 hour security. It has been a wonderful opportunity for us,” she adds. Optimal Solutions Group was referred to the ETC by William R. Linsao, Vice President for Commercial Lending at The Harbor Bank of Maryland.
CEO Mark Turner says he is especially grateful to the other large, well-known firms that have offered to mentor Optimal in key areas including accounting and legal advice. “We are excited about having other innovative firms as our neighbors," he says.
