August 30, 2013MILTON, Ga. – The opening of a new Citrix office in Milton has given the city another opportunity to make strides within the business front.
Citrix, a company dedicated to mobile workstyles and cloud service solutions, had its grand opening reception for its new office on Monday, Aug. 26 at 13560 Morris Road, Suite 2500.
Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood was present for the ribbon cutting and said he was excited to have a high quality company coming to Milton to add to the strong business base.
"Not only does this mean job possibilities, but also helping to fill the gap that Milton not only has open land and lots of nice places to live, but we've got some really good companies here too," Lockwood said.
Al Nash, executive director of Progress Partners Atlanta, said that the opening of the new office is just another sign of what the Milton area has to offer technological companies.
"This whole North Fulton region is very attractive for companies looking to continue to grow and expand, so we're really excited about this," Nash said.
The new office currently staffs about 125 employees and is looking to grow to over 250 within the next several years, said Citrix regional director Robert Ruppel. Additionally, the office includes state-of-the-art meeting rooms and a demonstration center.
Tom Eacobacci, vice president of worldwide services at Citrix systems, said the company has enjoyed tremendous growth within the last 25 years, and a lot of that growth is due to the support of the state of Georgia.
He added that the Milton office will serve as headquarters for the Southeast sales team and the primary facility for customer service and technical support.
"I'm looking forward to our continued growth and success going forward," Eacobacci said.
