McKesson Corporation to Relocate Corporate Headquarters to Las Colinas, Texas
“We are excited to strengthen our presence in Texas and make Las Colinas our official global headquarters,” said John H. Hammergren, Chairman & CEO, McKesson Corporation. “Governor Abbott and the Irving/Las Colinas community have provided tremendous support since we opened our Las Colinas campus last April. Making this move will improve efficiency, collaboration and cost-competitiveness, while providing an exceptional work environment for our employees.”
According to company officials, following the relocation of its headquarters, McKesson will continue to have a strong presence in California, employing more than 1,400 people, primarily in distribution operations and sales. The company opened a new distribution center for its medical-surgical division in Roseville, California earlier this year. McKesson Ventures will remain in San Francisco, along with a technology development team for McKesson’s US Oncology Network.
“We are taking great effort, care and consideration to make this transition as seamless as possible for our associates who will be affected by this transition,” Tyler continued. “It is important to us that every employee is treated with dignity and respect, consistent with McKesson’s ICARE shared principles. San Francisco-based employees are being offered the opportunity to relocate to Las Colinas and other hub locations. We look forward to bringing even more of our team together in our new, world-class global headquarters.”
McKesson’s Las Colinas campus is already a key hub for the company, company officials said. Employees at the North Texas location perform vital functions for the company in areas such as operations, information technology, finance and accounting, marketing and sales, administration and support, purchasing, and project management.
"I’m delighted McKesson, a Fortune 6 company, is making Texas the home of its new global headquarters,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. "The company has a long record of success in our state. McKesson’s expansion is an example of the kind of high-quality companies and jobs Texas has attracted as a result of our focus on economic growth, and I am proud to welcome them to the Lone Star State.”
“We are proud that McKesson has decided to make Irving/Las Colinas its official, corporate home,” said Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer. “Irving is an amazing city with talented, hard-working people and wonderful amenities. We’re delighted to have yet another Fortune 500 company make Irving their global headquarters.”
“As part of our strategic growth initiative, we’ve developed a hub location strategy, co-locating people based on the type of work they do to improve teamwork, advance innovation and increase efficiency,” said Brian Tyler, President & COO McKesson Corporation. “Bringing employee groups together in key locations will make McKesson a more streamlined and agile company, complementing our investments and improving operating profit growth for the organization.”
