“Another proof point that St. Louis is a major corporate headquarters metro,” said Jason Hall, CEO of Greater St. Louis, Inc.

The St. Louis metro has added another Fortune 1000 headquarters, as Advantage Solutions — a leading provider of outsourced sales and marketing solutions to consumer goods companies and retailers — announced today that it is moving its corporate HQ to St. Louis from Irvine, California.

“This is not only great news but serves as another proof point that St. Louis is a major corporate headquarters metro. This decision by Advantage Solutions underscores that we have the assets and renewed focus on growth that it takes to compete and win on the merits with the largest and most sophisticated global companies,” said Jason Hall, CEO of Greater St. Louis, Inc.

“St. Louis is resurgent as we embrace a collaborative culture of winning and building on our strengths. We are proud to have supported Advantage Solutions — a Fortune 1,000 publicly traded company with more than 70,000 employees worldwide — and are excited to welcome them in joining the dozens of other major global companies that call St. Louis home.”

Leading Advantage Solutions is CEO Dave Peacock, who has long been an active member of St. Louis’ civic-minded business community. The former President and COO of Schnuck Markets, Inc. and President of Anheuser-Busch, Peacock has been an active member and fundraiser for the Urban League of St. Louis who was instrumental in the effort that helped St. Louis get an MLS team.

“St. Louis is one of the great cities in the U.S., boasting top universities, a diverse talent pool, affordable living, and a central location that will foster more frequent, in-person connections with our teammates and our brand and retail clients,” said Peacock. “We’re excited to tap into St. Louis’ deep talent pool to fuel our purpose of connecting people with products and experiences that enrich their lives.”

Advantage Solutions will use its new St. Louis headquarters — the relocation will take place in the first quarter of 2024 — as a collaboration hub to develop innovative new strategies for the world's largest consumer goods companies and retailers. The company’s new HQ will attract employees, customers, and clients from around the country to St. Louis, boosting our metro’s economy and greatly benefitting our region.

Advantage Solutions will also be an active corporate citizen, with plans to invest in new programs aimed at benefitting the St. Louis community, centered on economic empowerment by creating equitable opportunities for diverse talent to lead and grow.
