Cheetah Digital Chooses Indianapolis, Indiana, for Operations Center
By September, the company plans to invest $620,000 in a new 7,500-square-foot office in the Guaranty Building on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis. The company is currently hiring sales and lead generation professionals, customer support managers, software engineers and other technical staff.
“Indianapolis is home to some of the brightest minds in enterprise marketing tech today,” said Todd Richardson, CAO for Cheetah Digital. “Creating a footprint for our business here will help us attract those individuals and create a true nexus for talented digital marketers who want to shape the future of this industry."
“The early leaders of Indiana’s tech movement are continuing to make big moves in our state and in the global tech community,” said Jim Schellinger, Indiana Secretary of Commerce. “As Cheetah Digital is branching off from Experian, it could have picked anywhere in the world for a new office. But with the legacy we saw spearheaded in the days of ExactTarget and kept alive by the many Hoosier tech entrepreneurs across our state, Indiana has grown into the ideal place for growing tech firms like Cheetah Digital to locate and expand.”
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Cheetah Digital up to $1,050,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. In addition, the city of Indianapolis supports the project in partnership with Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.
"The City of Indianapolis is proud to see some of our city’s early tech pioneers continue to lead the way in innovation. This investment will further expand and enhance our local tech ecosystem, and act as a bridge between the global economy and our city’s workforce," said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. "Indeed, this is yet another testament to the strength of our tech community, one that shows great promise of success for decades to come."
