(NYSE: BR) President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Gokey, President of Global Technology and Operations Charlie Marchesani, Acting Deputy Mayor of Economic and Housing Development Carmelo Garcia, and Newark Community Economic Development Corporation President and CEO Aisha Glover cut the ribbon to open Broadridge’s new offices for its Global Technology & Operations (GTO) Division, today, at 2 Gateway Center, 14th Floor, in downtown Newark.
Broadridge is a global fintech leader that helps clients transform their business with advanced communications, technology, operations, data, and analytics solutions.

“We are honored that Broadridge chose to relocate some of their facilities here and to bring a wealth of fintech knowledge and talent to our City. The economic revitalization of Newark is touching on every area – from the investments in Eds and Meds to the arts and even our new signature parks – and we will now welcome a leader in the financial tech industry. Broadridge’s move demonstrates that they appreciate and understand Newark’s renaissance and wish to be a part of this effort,” Mayor Baraka said.
“We are excited to be in Newark and support the city’s revitalization as a fintech hub,” said Mr. Marchesani. “The city and its location allows us to attract and retain top talent to drive innovation and solutions for our clients, helping them get ahead of today’s challenges to be ready for the future. We look forward to being an active and supportive member of a great community.”
Broadridge selected Newark as the location for the Global Technology and Operations (GTO) Division headquarters, which had previously been located in Jersey City, after months of evaluations and exploration.
“We found Newark to represent the type of progressive environment where governmental bodies, corporations, universities, and the nonprofit communities come together in a very collaborative fashion,” added J. Michael Hopkins, Broadridge GTO Executive Liaison.
For companies such as Broadridge, 2 Gateway’s unique connectivity – in both its transportation access and technological infrastructures – has proven to be a strong draw. 2 Gateway was the first building in the state of New Jersey to achieve Wired Platinum certification from WiredScore, indicating superior internet connectivity. The building was also the first to participate in the Newark Fiber program, allowing tenants to access affordable fiber-optic internet access, including an available industry-leading 10-gigabit connection. C&K Properties also made significant improvements to its lobby area and concourse – which is connected to Newark Penn Station via pedestrian walkway – including the addition of the Cotidiano café and coffee shop, along with a laptop bar and redesigned furnishings.
“Broadridge’s excitement, both to be a part of 2 Gateway and the broader Newark community, is palpable. They are an extraordinary addition to the Brick City,” said Kevin Collins, managing director of C&K Properties. “As a building owner, it is our commitment to provide the hands-on management and cutting-edge technological infrastructure that Broadridge requires in order to grow and thrive here in Newark.”
