Deluxe Corporation, a provider of products and services to small businesses, financial institutions, and enterprise clients, will invest more than $10 million to establish a new office complex along with a FinTech and Customer Innovation Center in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
The company, which already employs roughly 200 in the state, plans to create an additional 709 jobs in Fulton County.
“The Deluxe Payments and FinTech businesses are growing rapidly, even during a global pandemic,” said President and CEO of Deluxe Barry C. McCarthy. “Metro Atlanta is a global FinTech and payments industry capital, so it is the right place to expand our business. We are pleased to tap into the deep FinTech talent pool, industry coalitions, business-friendly environment, and supportive university system in the region.”
“Georgia is a global leader in FinTech and payments, and the Deluxe expansion is a welcome addition to the state’s first-class ecosystem of industry leaders,” said Governor Brian P. Kemp. “I’m excited for the new opportunities that Deluxe will provide to the talented and hardworking Georgians in Sandy Springs and metro Atlanta.”
The city agreed to waive as much as $255,000 in permit and business license fees depending on the length of the company’s office lease.
"Barry McCarthy has been an integral force in metro Atlanta's FinTech community through the years," said Katie Kirkpatrick, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. "The decision to locate Deluxe's new FinTech and Customer Innovation Center and office complex here demonstrates Barry's commitment to our region and highlights our continued reputation as a FinTech leader."
