ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cardlytics®, the data and advertising company that pioneered the global Card-Linked Marketing industry, announced today that it has moved its corporate headquarters to Ponce City Market in midtown Atlanta. Coming closely on the heels of Cardlytics’ $70 million round of financing in October of 2014, the move consolidates the company’s four Atlanta-based offices under one roof in more than 75,000 square feet in the historic site. Cardlytics will join Twitter, MailChimp and other technology companies currently located at the Ponce City Market space.
“It’s also energizing to move into a space with other forward-thinking employers, like Twitter, MailChimp, athenahealth and HowStuffWorks.”
“These are exciting times for Cardlytics,” said Scott Grimes, CEO of Cardlytics, who co-founded the company with Cardlytics President and COO Lynne Laube. “Demand for our advertising platform is booming. We needed more space to expand all facets of our business, from data analytics to product development to strategic partnerships.”
Cardlytics began in Atlanta in 2008, and its founders were committed to staying in the city from the start. Cardlytics has more than 250 employees, and the company plans to grow past 300 within the year. The new office space, designed by the architectural firm Smith Dalia, will support the majority of their employees. Other employees currently work from three other offices in New York, San Francisco and London and in other parts of the U.S.
”For a growing company like Cardlytics, consolidating all of our Atlanta employees in one space at Ponce City Market will create a powerful, creative community, allowing for better teamwork, collaboration and productivity,” said Jim Morgan, CFO of Cardlytics. “It’s also energizing to move into a space with other forward-thinking employers, like Twitter, MailChimp, athenahealth and HowStuffWorks.”
Cardlytics will join many other businesses, retailers and restaurants in the renovated Sears, Roebuck & Company building, which was established in 1926 in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta.
