Fiserv, Inc., a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, will invest $41 million to establish its technology operations center in the Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta, Georgia
. The company, which currently employs approximately 2,000 associates across six locations in the metro Atlanta area, will add 500 jobs over the next five years.
“Fiserv has had a presence in Georgia for more than two decades and has become one of the largest technology employers in our state,” said Gov. Nathan Deal. “The fact that Fiserv has chosen to retain and grow its operations in Georgia is a testament to the positive business climate of our state.”
The new Alpharetta campus was selected due to its desirable location as well as its ability to accommodate existing needs and continued growth. Bringing associates currently working in separate locations together will further enhance productivity, collaboration and engagement. The buildings will be occupied in phases, with associates expected to move from existing offices to 2900 and 2950 Westside Parkway during 2015 and 2016, the Governor’s Office said.
“We have completed a number of acquisitions in the Atlanta area over the years and it is a key technology center for Fiserv,” said president and CEO of Fiserv Jeff Yabuki. “We are excited to bring our associates together in a collaborative and innovative environment supported by the latest workplace technology. Enhancing the connections among our associates will have a positive impact on their professional lives and enable us to best serve our clients.”
“Fiserv is bringing nearly 2,000 existing jobs to Alpharetta, and the company has committed to hire a significant number of additional associates as they establish a presence in our community,” said Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle. “As a leading location for technology-focused businesses, we are confident that Alpharetta will be just the right fit for Fiserv, and we welcome the company and their area associates to our city.”
“Georgia is the ideal location for an innovative company like Fiserv,” said commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development
Chris Carr. “Not only do we have a skilled workforce, but our robust technology infrastructure offers the mobility and usability that is essential to a global financial services technology company.”
