Cloud-based commercial lending system WebEquity is moving west because of an expanding staff.

The company's current offices are inside the Omaha World-Herald building downtown. It will relocate its staff of 57 by Sept. 1 to a new office building at 1120 N. 103rd Plaza, near Westroads Mall.

CEO and owner Doug McGregor said the company is looking to hire 12 employees in the next six months. The move was spurred by its expanding staff along with the fact that most of its employees now live west of 42nd Street.

“You could probably hear the cheers downstairs when we announced we were moving out west,” McGregor said.

WebEquity moved to The World-Herald Building in 2009 after relocating the company to Omaha from Glenwood, Iowa. The company creates software used by banks to facilitate the lending process.
