Hyatt Hotels Corporation, the global hospitality company, which is headquartered in Chicago, will relocate more than 60 Information Technology positions from a suburban location to downtown Chicago, Illinois. The move will bring more than 60 positions held by both Hyatt associates and its IT vendors to the company’s 200 West Monroe location.
“We welcome Hyatt’s decision to move these technology positions to downtown Chicago, and we look forward to watching the company continue to grow here,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “By increasing the number of IT positions in Chicago, Hyatt continues to foster a culture of collaboration and innovation. With its headquarters in Chicago, this move reinforces the company’s commitment to building and growing careers in a city that is known for its strength in information technology and E-Commerce, two critical areas of growth as our economy evolves.”
“Hyatt’s culture is built on collaboration, and we are proud to cultivate talent right here in our hometown of Chicago,” CEO Mark Hoplamazian. “By bringing this technology team together under one roof, we are furthering an even more creative, collaborative environment that will continue to enhance Chicago’s reputation as a growing force in the information technology space.”
“Hyatt joins a growing list of companies that recognize Chicago is the premier location to attract world-class technology talent,” said World Business Chicago President Jeff Malehorn. “We are fortunate that Hyatt’s President/CEO Mark Hoplamazian serves on WBC’s Board of Directors and we look forward to continuing our work with Hyatt as we implement efforts to accelerate growth and bring jobs into the city and region.”
