Moderna Establishes Atlanta, Georgia, Enterprise Solutions Hub
The Atlanta Enterprise Solutions Hub will initially host finance, human resources, procurement, and digital solutions, and Moderna will continue to identify opportunities to host additional functions and business services out of the hub as it grows. Operations are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2022.
“We are pleased to be expanding our footprint after a year of tremendous growth, which underscored the need for business services activities in proximity to skilled talent,” said Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna. “We look forward to engaging with the diverse pool of talent in the Atlanta community.”
Following recently announced expansions, Moderna expects to have commercial subsidiaries in 21 countries globally this year, including additional subsidiaries in the Asia-Pacific region and Europe.
“We are excited to welcome Moderna to Georgia’s vibrant life sciences community. Atlanta was on the front lines in the development and clinical trials for the COVID-19 vaccine, and was recently named by CBRE as a leading emerging market for life sciences,” said Pat Wilson, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “Georgia’s spirit of collaboration and innovation has fostered impressive growth across the entire health and life sciences ecosystem. Many thanks to Moderna for continuing that momentum and investing in Georgia.”
Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Assistant Director of Corporate Solutions and Cybersecurity Barton Lowrey represented the Global Commerce team on this project in partnership with the Metro Atlanta Chamber and Georgia Power.
“Moderna’s decision to locate their new offices in Atlanta is reflective of the strength of our life sciences and technology communities,” said Metro Atlanta Chamber President and CEO Katie Kirkpatrick. “Our region’s diverse and skilled talent, as well as our pro-business commitment, will be great benefits to Moderna as they look to grow in our region. This project is also a fantastic example of the momentum in our life sciences ecosystem anchored by our leading research institutions.”
