Today was a milestone for InterWorks Tulsa as we officially christened our new office space! The space, located in Tulsa’s hip Cherry Street district, is set on the second floor of a two-story brick building atop several restaurants.
To help us celebrate our new digs, we invited clients, friends and the Tulsa Regional Chamber of Commerce for an open house event. The event lasted two hours with plenty of mimosas, sausage rolls and InterWorks swag up for grabs. We closed the event out with the obligatory ribbon cutting.
“We took special care to ensure our new Tulsa office captures our fun company culture and Tulsa’s unique vibe. Aside from being a great place to come to work every day, this space gives us room to grow so that we can better serve our clients in Tulsa and beyond.”
– Behfar Jahanshahi, CEO, InterWorks
Our History in Tulsa
To give you a little history of InterWorks’ presence in Tulsa, we need to rewind back to 2011. With InterWorks’ IT business expanding to clients throughout Eastern Oklahoma, we decided it was time to open the doors to an office located on Brookside in the Consortium shopping center.

Another factor that came into play was that we wanted better access to Tulsa’s talented pool of professional talent. When we first announced that we’d be opening a Tulsa office, it didn’t take long for us to fill up spots.
Our five years on Brookside were great! However, in early 2016, we realized that we would soon outgrow the space. So, the search for something new ensued. After looking at a variety of locations from Downtown to South Tulsa, we caught wind of a new space being built on Cherry Street.
Anyone who knows Tulsa know that Cherry Street is one Tulsa’s most beloved districts and has a vibe all its own. This, in addition to the new space being exactly what we were looking for, made Cherry Street the perfect fit for our Tulsa employees. We jumped on the opportunity.
Fast forward to December 2016, and we officially moved into our new space. We thought it best to get settled in before making any major public announcement. Now, here we are!
What the Future Holds
With plenty of room to grow and a modern, updated vibe, the InterWorks Tulsa office was designed to last. In fact, we’ve already brought on a few new hires to our Tulsa office. We also have a great space to bring in clients and partners.

It’s no secret that our goal is to continue to grow in the Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas markets. We’re also incredibly proud to be putting Oklahoma on the map for tech. This new office will help us greatly to those ends. Plus, it’s important to us that our employees have a space that they love.
Speaking as one of those Tulsa employees, I can say with full confidence that we love our new space. We’re excited to make lasting memories here and can’t thank Behfar and Staci (our CEO and CFO) enough for always giving us the best.
