Infusionsoft, a creator of sales and marketing software for businesses, plans to relocate from Gilbert, Arizona, south to a new 86,000-square-foot headquarters in Chandler, Arizona, located southeast of Scottsdale and Tempe.
Arizona Commerce Authority officials said they and the City of Chandler worked closely with Infusionsoft to find the perfect home at Allred Park Place in the Price Corridor. The firm plans to hire 1,000 employees over the next three to four years.
"We invested a great deal of time in our search for the ideal home for Infusionsoft as we continue this next phase of explosive growth," says Clate Mask, CEO and co-founder of Infusionsoft. "Chandler's Price Corridor represents a budding center for tech companies and talent. In the City of Chandler and the Arizona Commerce Authority, we've found true partners committed to our expansion, and to the success of our small business customers."
"In this new location, we'll create a world-class headquarters that represents the vibrancy and innovation of Infusionsoft. It will become the training center for small businesses in Arizona, and worldwide, to get the tools and education to help power their success," Mask said.
"Working with the developer, Douglas Allred Company, Infusionsoft is creating a remarkable new work environment that will help the company continue to be one of the best workplaces in America and a best places to work in the Valley. The new space is designed to give employees a culture of inclusiveness, innovation and fun. Infusionsoft's team will occupy the entire building, which is the first major speculative office building to be built in Arizona since 2009.
Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny said, "Infusionsoft is a perfect fit for Chandler and the high-tech, creative class workforce we continue to recruit. Collaborative partnerships are critical in this knowledge-based economy, and we know Infusionsoft will be a stellar addition to the technology hub being created in the Price Corridor."
Infusionsoft currently has almost 300 employees and is growing its workforce at a rate of 15 percent per quarter. The firm integrates CRM, email marketing, e-commerce and marketing automation into one system that helps businesses automatically market to prospects and customers.
"Infusionsoft is a rising star in Arizona, and the Arizona Commerce Authority is pleased to see this company realize such success," said Don Cardon, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority.
As an incentive to its expansion and grown, Cardon said, "Infusionsoft was one of the first companies to take advantage of Arizona's Angel Tax Credit to raise seed funding, and subsequent venture capital. One of the ACA's main priorities is growing our own; we provide assistance to help Arizona companies expand. Infusionsoft is a marquee employer in a growing industry sector. The ACA is proud to have them as a partner in Arizona."
