About Us

Comprised of Personnel & Talent, Legal, Financial, Global Technologies, Information Security, Communications, Operations, and Management experts, 14 West offers business leaders the services of seasoned administrative professionals. While they focus on growing their enterprises through new ideas, we ensure the wellbeing of their workplace.

In other words, companies supported by 14 West enjoy the unique luxury to do the work they want to do rather than the work they have to do.

Just like those companies, 14 West was the product of an idea and a small group of passionate people. It was 2001, and Corporate America was abuzz with all of the latest tactics and technologies for streamlining administrative costs and growing margins. But instead of rejoicing, we paused.

We simply weren’t convinced by these cash-and-carry strategies for building infrastructure. And we prefer the idea of people, not machines, managing the wellbeing of other people.

Fifteen years later, 14 West still supports those very entrepreneurs, our employees, and more than 20 other enterprises around the world. And our passion only continues to grow. With a unique approach to service that is thoughtful, thorough, and yet agile, we’ve got a proven track record of success that spans a wide range of industries all around the world.
