Global Payments Inc Locates Headquarters In Sandy Springs, Georgia

Global Payments Inc., a leading worldwide provider of payment technology services, will increase its technology personnel in Sandy Springs, Georgia. The company will also locate their headquarters operation in the heart of Atlanta’s “Transaction Alley.”

The company announced it will move its corporate headquarters to Three Alliance Center in early 2017, while emphasizing its commitment to remain in Sandy Springs by making a significant investment in improvements and upgrades to the current location. In addition, the expansion will further promote careers, collectively adding over 200 jobs in the fields of technology and finance.

“Global Payments’ transformative growth and company performance position us for continued investment in metro Atlanta, and Georgia is the ideal location for a worldwide payments technology leader,” said David Mangum, Global Payments’ President/CEO. “Georgia is the epicenter of the payments industry and a gateway for global business. We believe the large concentration of high-tech talent, that drives innovation and access to transportation makes Atlanta the perfect headquarters location, and we are delighted to expand our presence here.

“Global Payments’ decision to expand is further affirmation that our highly-skilled workforce and well-connected information technology infrastructure have created an ecosystem where leading financial technology companies can prosper,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “We believe Global Payments will continue to find success in our pro-business environment, adding yet another success story to Georgia’s thriving ‘Transaction Alley’.”

“I extend my congratulations to Global Payments for choosing to invest and expand its operations in the metropolitan Atlanta area,” said Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. “Atlanta has earned its reputation as ‘Transaction Alley’ because leading payment processing companies have chosen to build their businesses here, where they have access to a talented workforce, internationally-recognized colleges and universities and a high quality of life. Today’s announcement is a testament to how our regional partners are working together to support business and economic growth.”

“Global Payments’ decision to expand their presence in Georgia will allow them to tap into a wealth of resources, including some of the most sought-after talent in the financial technology industry,” said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Carr. “We look forward to working with this leading company to support them in future growth as they continue to drive innovation in this sector.”
