Austin Chamber Plays Key Role in Securing Major Healthcare Company
AUSTIN, Texas – Feb. 17, 2016 - The Austin Chamber of Commerce announced today that healthcare cloud service company ClearDATA has chosen to move their US headquarters to Austin. The Arizona company is working with Cushman & Wakefield | Oxford Commercial to secure their new location in downtown Austin.
When looking for a new US headquarters, ClearDATA chose Austin because of its central location, reputation for top technology talent and vibrant, affordable live/work environment. The relocation is expected to bring 100 jobs, 80 of which will be created new in Austin.
“As a leader in digital healthcare cloud services, we have much to look forward to as we expand in Austin,” said Aaron Barfoot, CFO of ClearDATA. “Austin’s growing healthcare industry, world-renowned technology sector and highly educated talent pool, make it a great opportunity for our company to continue to innovate the way healthcare professionals use, store and keep data safe. Central Texas is a great place to live and do business.”
The Austin Chamber of Commerce and Opportunity Austin, a five-county public-private economic development initiative aimed at fostering job-creating investment in the Austin region, supported this move via collaboration with key leadership from ClearDATA throughout the site selection process. The Chamber assisted ClearDATA with understanding the Austin market's talent, highlighted real estate options and made introductions to workforce partners including the University of Texas at Austin’s new Dell Medical School.
“ClearDATA is entering the Austin market at a key time for our healthcare ecosystem,” said Phil Wilson, Opportunity Austin Chair. “With the convergence of technology, healthcare and innovation, they join a growing number of companies seeing the potential in the Austin region. We welcome ClearDATA to our community and look forward to their success.”
