Congratulations to our client, Genesco, on the grand opening of their new corporate headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee. Genesco celebrated the official opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on November 3, 2022, attended by Rory MacRae and Geoff Devlin. The 183,000-square-foot office is Genesco’s first headquarters move in more than 60 years, and is home to multiple specialty brands and around 800 employees.
