Wunderman Thompson Commerce opens its new global HQ in Watford following global integration and expansion, extending its 20 year-long stay in the town

Watford, UK. 2nd August: Global eCommerce consultancy Wunderman Thompson Commerce moves into its first dedicated office today, extending its 20-year residence in Watford. The company is moving from 64 Clarendon Road to 36 Clarendon Road as it looks to expand following its integration into Wunderman Commerce, part of the global digital agency Wunderman.

Wunderman Thompson Commerce re-located to Watford in 1998 with approximately 200 employees. Today, the company boasts over 750 employees in the UK and works with the likes of DFS, Halfords, Sainsbury’s, Ted Baker and many other major national and international brands.

James Westoby, UK Managing Director at Wunderman Thompson Commerce, said: “We’ve been in Watford for two decades and we didn’t want to change a winning formula. Watford has become a popular base for more and more large companies due to its convenient transport links and ongoing investment of more than £1.5bn to improve services in the town. It’s a great place to base ourselves as we continue to expand.”

The new head office will include a rooftop terrace and electric car charging points, as well as secure storage, showers on each floor and separate ‘hubs’ for client meetings, breakfasts and company meetings.

Andy Jones, Director of Customer Experience at Wunderman Thompson Commerce, said: “The new office is the start of another great chapter for everyone involved at the company and I look forward to toasting many future wins on the rooftop terrace!”
