REES Capital will officially open the doors to its newly renovated office space today in South Jordan.
The offices have been renovated from a former restaurant. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 4 p.m. REES' offices are at 651 W. South Jordan Parkway (10600 South) in South Jordan.
REES (Recognizing & Empowering Entrepreneurial Success) Capital was founded last year by Amy Rees Anderson, former CEO of MediConnect Global. Its purpose is to help guide and support start-ups and high-growth companies.
Anderson last year was named the 2012 Brigham Young University Entrepreneur of the Year by the Rollins Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology. She was the first woman to receive the honor, which recognizes an individual's business acumen and accomplishments and is selected by the Rollins Center Founders Board before being approved by the Marriott School of Management.
For nearly nine years, Anderson led all aspects of MediConnect Global, a medical record retrieval and management firm. Under her direction, the company grew to more than 1,000 employees worldwide and achieved 1,500 percent growth since 2004.
In March 2012, Verisk Analytics acquired MediConnect for more than $377 million.
