Wallaby Financial Announces Move to New Location in Pasadena, California

PASADENA, Calif., Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wallaby Financial Inc., the leader in mobile and web-based credit card optimization solutions, today announced an office move to Pasadena’s newest and highest quality office space, Playhouse Plaza. After tripling its staff in Pasadena since the start of 2016, Wallaby will use the additional space to support continued growth and hiring.

The new office features a bold custom interior resembling Wallaby’s branded colors. Inside is a beautifully designed kitchen with innovative lighting features, a large patio overlooking Pasadena’s historic playhouse, sit/stand desks, communal lounge area, and a foosball table, a staple ingredient to Wallaby’s company culture.

“As Wallaby undergoes a major growth initiative, Playhouse Plaza is the perfect spot for their team to expand and thrive,” said David Saeta, Senior Vice President at IDS Real Estate Group. “The design and location of Playhouse Plaza, combined with the size of the space, are conducive to a fast-growing company like Wallaby.”

“When Wallaby started to rapidly consume its existing space, we were tasked with finding the perfect space to support long-term success,” said Dan Gallup, Principal at Cresa, the world’s largest tenant-only commercial real estate firm. “I believe Playhouse Plaza is the ideal combination of bold design and great location, promising a supportive environment for their unique company culture.”

Pasadena’s Playhouse Plaza is home to leading tech and financial companies, from Alibaba Pictures to Charles Schwab. The 155,002 square foot complex features courtyards ideal for informal meetings and balconies that overlook the famous Rose Parade route.

“As we grow our team substantially to support our continued momentum in the financial services technology industry, we quickly outgrew our old office space,” said Matthew Goldman, Wallaby Financial Founder and CEO. “Playhouse Plaza is the perfect mix of location, services, and neighbors. We’re happy to call it our new home and look forward to many successful years in our new office.”

The new office is located in the heart of the historic Pasadena Playhouse district with easy access to dozens of restaurants, shops and venues. The move makes Wallaby Financial more accessible by the Ventura, Foothill and Pasadena freeways, as well as the Gold Line Metro Rail. As Wallaby continues to expand its staff in coming months, Playhouse Plaza will provide plenty of desk and communal space.
