“The success Jive is experiencing speaks to the solidity and efficiency with which the company has been run over the past eight years,” said Spencer P.

“We’re proud to be a Utah-based company,” said John Pope, Jive’s CEO. “The state has a wealth of technical and business professionals, and we’re able to hire world-class talent here at home.”
“EDCUtah is pleased to see the expansion of Jive Communications in Utah County,” said Jeff Edwards, President and CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Utah. “The information technology sector in the state will be greatly enhanced by Jive’s commitment to grow their operations here.”
According to state economic development officials, over the next five years Jive Communications will pay at least $6,255,476 in new state taxes and $130,946,265 in new state wages. Capital investment for this expansion will be approximately $6.4 million.
