Salesforce Announces Salesforce Tower Atlanta, Commits to Adding 600 New Jobs

Salesforce, the global leader in CRM, has announced Salesforce Tower Atlanta, significantly expanding the company’s regional headquarters in Atlanta. As part of the expansion, Salesforce plans to add 600 new jobs locally, helping fuel the city’s economic development over the next five years. The company will grow its footprint in The Atlanta Plaza in Buckhead, which will now be known as Salesforce Tower Atlanta.

Salesforce Tower Atlanta joins the ranks of other Salesforce regional headquarters, including Salesforce Tower New York, Salesforce Tower Indianapolis, Salesforce Tower London, and the company’s worldwide headquarters, Salesforce Tower San Francisco.

Salesforce will start moving into the newly renovated floors beginning in 2019. Plans for the building include a renovated immersive lobby experience and top floor “Ohana Floor”, an open hospitality space for Salesforce employees, customers and partners, which is also available for nonprofits and local education groups on weeknights and weekends at no cost.

“Salesforce continues to reach new heights and we're thrilled to further our commitment to the city of Atlanta,” said Elizabeth Pinkham, EVP, Real Estate, Salesforce. “Salesforce Tower Atlanta provides a one-of-a-kind workspace where all of our employees can do the best work of their lives while supporting the community by giving back.”

“Atlanta is a fantastic market for world-class talent and we’re thrilled to grow our presence in the region,” said Warren Wick, EVP, Commercial Sales, Salesforce. “Many of our top customers call the city home and we’re excited to support these trailblazers in connecting with their customers in whole new ways.”

“Salesforce joins other market-leading global brands that have recently announced plans to grow their operations in Atlanta,” said Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. “We are proud to be a top choice for companies looking for a talented workforce, quality-of-life, and a welcoming and inclusive business community. The Salesforce cloud will be an exciting addition to our ever-evolving skyline.”

Salesforce has been named one of Fortune’s Best Places to Work for the past 10 years and was recently ranked one of Atlanta’s Best Places to Work by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Salesforce Tower Atlanta will be a hub for world-class, diverse talent, enabling the company to deliver new innovations to its more than 150,000 customers around the world. Salesforce has nearly 600 employees in the Atlanta area and more than 32,000 employees worldwide. Atlanta is home to many Salesforce customers including Coca-Cola, InterContinental Hotels Group, SunTrust and Kabbage.
