Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions headquartered in Brookfield, Wis., announced today that it has selected a new location in Alpharetta, Ga., for its Atlanta-area operations.
The company, which currently employs approximately 2,000 associates across six locations in the Atlanta metro area, has signed a lease for adjacent buildings located at 2900 and 2950 Westside Parkway.
The new Alpharetta campus will provide Fiserv associates with all of the amenities of a modern office environment, and was selected due to its desirable location as well as its ability to accommodate existing needs and continued growth. Bringing associates currently working in separate locations together will further enhance productivity, collaboration and engagement. Fiserv will modernize the building to ensure the new office location is a representation of the company's brand experience. It will include a state-of-the-art client briefing and innovation center.
"Throughout our history, we have completed a number of acquisitions in the Atlanta area, which is a key technology center for Fiserv," said Jeff Yabuki, President and CEO, Fiserv. "We are excited to bring our associates together in a collaborative and innovative environment supported by the latest workplace technology. Enhancing the connections among our associates will have a positive impact on their professional lives and enable us to best serve our clients."
The new office environment will embody the Fiserv workplace of the future, elements of which have already been introduced at other Fiserv office locations in California and New Jersey. This workplace approach emphasizes the creation of optimal business settings based on associates' roles and how they work in order to enable individual and team success.
"Fiserv has had a presence in Georgia for more than two decades, and has become one of the largest technology employers in our state," said Governor Nathan Deal. "The fact that Fiserv has chosen to retain and grow its operations in Georgia is a testament to the positive business climate of our state."
The buildings will be occupied in phases, with associates expected to move from existing offices to the new location during 2015 and 2016.
"Fiserv is bringing nearly 2,000 existing jobs to Alpharetta, and the company has committed to hire a significant number of additional associates as they establish a presence in our City," said David Belle Isle, Mayor of Alpharetta. "As the Technology City of the South with over 600 technology companies within our borders, we are confident that Alpharetta will be just the right fit for Fiserv, and we welcome Fiserv and its associates to our technology community and our growing technology culture."
