A technology and software provider for education agencies, Thinkgate moved its corporate headquarters to 21,210-square-foot of space at South Tryon Square in uptown Charlotte, North Carolina
. The firm plans to hire up to 120 employees during the next three years.
The new headquarters will centralize all Thinkgate operations, including the client experience, project management, technology and deployment, sales and marketing, and accounting functions, the Charlotte Chamber said.
“After outgrowing our corporate headquarters
in Atlanta and our Operations Center in Huntersville, N.C., it made sense to consolidate locations. Charlotte appealed to us due to its excellent quality of life and skilled workforce
,” said Eric Waynick, Thinkgate CEO. “In addition to centralizing our operations to improve communication and efficiency, this relocation will put us in the heart of Charlotte’s bourgeoning technology community
. Ultimately, a centrally located office and close proximity to other technology companies will allow us to better serve our clients.”
“In Charlotte’s Center City, Thinkgate will enjoy the best access to our region’s talent, full transit offerings for their associates, and easy access to our professional sports, entertainment and hospitality amenities,” said Michael Smith, President/CEO of Charlotte Center City Partners.
