Courion moves HQ's from Boston, MA to Atlanta, GA!
As most of you know, earlier this year Courion was acquired by K1 Capital and with that has come a lot of investment in our organization. With these investments we have seen a change in leadership, in personnel, and today I am excited to announce that we are relocating our corporate headquarters to Atlanta, GA.
The new Operational Center of Excellence in Roswell, Georgia will serve as the global headquarters for all Courion operations. This move was a very strategic decision. According the Georgia Department of Economic Development, more than 25% of the worldwide security revenue market share comes from companies in Georgia. This move positions Courion with fellow thought leaders in security enterprise software with access to the best talent and most up to date trends and information in the securities industry.
While we are making continued changes here at Courion, there is one thing that will not change: our mission to help customers succeed in a world of open access and increasing threats.
At CONVERGE, I laid out our three-pronged approach to making this mission a reality which included investments in human capital, product management and organic and inorganic growth. Our relocation to Roswell ties directly to our investment in human capital. We see this as commitment to our customers and our teams to not only hire the best minds in the business but to continuously provide them the training needed to be at the top of their field.
This move is just one example of the ways we are working to improve our service to our customers. In the way of product management we have hired a new team, including a UX designer, and have assigned product owners who will be able to connect with you, our customers and partners, to make sure that your needs are fulfilled in our products.
At CONVERGE, we discussed the acquisition of Bay31. This falls in line with our last tenant of change, a commitment to organic and Inorganic growth. This acquisition will increase our abilities in the intelligence space and will give customers access to better information as well as allow our product development team new programs and information systems that they could previously only dream of.
This is just the beginning of a fresh start for Courion. Coming out of CONVERGE we committed to more communication regarding product updates, better customer support, and real-life examples of using our products in your business. These programs are in the works and you will start to see the results of these efforts very soon.
As always, we will remain laser-focused on our mission to help our customers succeed, and I believe that creating this new Center of Excellence in Roswell is just the beginning of a bright future.
