Deal: Comcast to create 300 jobs in Fulton, Gwinnett counties
Gov. Nathan Deal announced today that Comcast will expand its business in greater Atlanta, creating 300 new jobs in Fulton and Gwinnett counties and relocating to a new, more modern regional headquarters in Peachtree Corners as part of the company’s overall effort to enhance the customer experience.
“With approximately 4,000 employees in Georgia, Comcast has long been a strong corporate partner of our state,” said Deal. “Not only has the company created high-quality jobs, but Comcast has also continued to invest in technology infrastructure statewide. With our competitive business climate that includes a solid logistics infrastructure and some of the best and brightest minds in technology, I have no doubt that Comcast will continue to flourish in Georgia.”
Comcast has selected Peachtree Corners in Gwinnett County for the location of its new regional headquarters, which will house the company’s existing 532 full-time local employees. The new 88,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility will feature four floors, a high-tech demonstration lab and a Comcast University space for employee training and continuing education. The company will add 150 positions at its new headquarters and 150 additional employees to its existing facility in Alpharetta on North Point Parkway.
“By bringing 300 new jobs to Atlanta, Comcast continues to support Georgia’s economic development by building a strong, highly skilled workforce, deploying innovative products and services, and investing in the most advanced broadband network in the state,” said Comcast Regional SVP Doug Guthrie. “Our new regional headquarters in Peachtree Corners puts us in a larger, more contemporary environment, allowing us to better meet the needs of our customers across our service area. I want to thank Governor Deal, Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr, Fulton Chairman John Eaves, Gwinnett Chairman Charlotte Nash, our partners from the state, and those from Fulton and Gwinnett counties for their terrific support.”
