On June 1, 2015, ORIX USA opened the doors to a new home for the company’s New York office to keep up with the firm’s growth.
ORIX USA now occupies the 27th floor at 485 Lexington Ave. After spending the last nine years at 245 Park Ave. in a shared space with Houlihan Lokey, an ORIX USA subsidiary, the company outgrew the available area.
When the firm began collocating with Houlihan Lokey in 2006, only two ORIX employees called it home. The number now stands at nearly 20 employees and growing.
“Our new space accommodates the recent, rapid and diverse growth in the New York market and prepares us for future expansion,” said Hideto Nishitani, ORIX USA Chairman, President and CEO.
The New York office houses members of several of ORIX USA’s business units, including healthcare capital, municipal and infrastructure, corporate development, leveraged finance and one of the company’s subsidiaries, RED Capital Group. The office will also be used by senior executives and others when traveling to New York for business. Mariner Investment Group, LLC, a global alternative asset manager and ORIX USA subsidiary, is located on the 28th floor of the building.
“We see great potential in the northeast markets and look forward to what lies ahead as we continue to grow and explore new opportunities,” said Nishitani.
