Virgin Mobile Chooses Kansas City, Missouri, For Headquarters
According to state officials, Virgin Mobile expects to identify office space in downtown Kansas City as soon as possible with occupancy expected by the end of 2016.
“Kansas City has an emphasis on entrepreneurship and technology, especially in the downtown and Crossroads area, which fits exactly with the direction for the new Virgin Mobile,” said Dow Draper, Virgin Mobile USA CEO. “It is a vibrant place to live and work, giving us the ability to attract a world-class team with experience across multiple industries to become part of the global Virgin family.”
“The Kansas City market competed with several major metro areas for Virgin Mobile USA’s new headquarters,” said Tim Cowden, President/CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council, which helped attract Virgin Mobile USA to KC. “Dynamic technology companies that want to grow and thrive in today’s economy should definitely have Kansas City on their radar.”
