Original Post, March 16, 2022 / ARES PRISM Software, the leader in helping large and megaproject-level construction projects deliver on time and on budget, has announced the relocation of its corporate headquarters from Burlingame, California, to Naperville, Illinois. 

Ryan Kubacki, CEO of ARES PRISM

“I am pumped up to bring technology jobs to Naperville,” said Ryan Kubacki, CEO of ARES PRISM. “I joke that I moved our company from Silicon Valley to Silicon Prairie.”

A resident of Naperville since 2000, on and off, but mostly on, Kubacki has many reasons to be enthusiastic about establishing his hometown as the company’s official headquarters.

“There’s a great talent pool here in the ‘Silicon Prairie’ area, and Naperville is a convenient, central hub for our teams across North America,” Kubacki added. “The proximity to O’Hare Airport allows for easier travel for our international teams, too.” 

The ARES PRISM project controls software suite is used on major capital projects across the world to manage project and program costs and budgets. Large EPCs, government-funded infrastructure, mining, and megaproject organizations in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia turn to ARES PRISM Software to achieve superior project management with increased visibility and control, boosted accuracy, and efficiency, and improved financial performance. 

Naperville native connects with ARES PRISM

Kubacki partnered with growth equity firm M33 Growth to buy ARES PRISM from founder Richard Stuart, an industry luminary who is now retiring. Kubacki is a proud co-investor in the business. 

“I am ecstatic to partner with M33 and work with ARES PRISM’s fantastic team, customers and partners, as we build upon a track record of more than 25 years of helping organizations solve project management challenges,” added Kubacki. “Right out of the gate, I will be diving into how we can both broaden and deepen our customer value proposition through enhanced product development to ensure ARES PRISM continues its success as the market’s leading project cost management and project controls software.”

“Our community is honored to welcome ARES PRISM’s new global headquarters,” Naperville Mayor Steve Chirico said. “We are proud that a company on the cutting edge of their industry finds common ground in Naperville, a leading-edge community. As mayor, it is even more heartwarming that a Naperville native is leading ARES PRISM’s move to Naperville.” 

Headquarters located in landmark Metro West building

The new headquarters is on the tenth floor of the Metro West building and houses many of ARES PRISM’s senior executive team. Kubacki has hired seven Chicago-area residents in the past two months, including fellow Naperville resident Kurt Kauper as Chief Revenue Officer and Chris Anello as Vice President of Finance. The plan is to hire another fifteen team members in sales, marketing, and software engineering. 

The award-winning company is looking to become the leading SaaS project controls software company across North America, Europe, and Asia. The new global headquarters for the tech company is located at 55 Shuman Blvd., Suite 1050, Naperville, IL 60563.
