Charter To Move HQ From St. Louis To Stamford, CT

Additional details of the deal to be announced by Gov. Malloy on October 2, 2012.

On October 1, 2012, executives from Charter Communications revealed the company’s plans to move its headquarters from St. Louis, MO to downtown Stamford, CT. The deal has been confirmed by the office of Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy with additional details to be announced.

The video, Internet and telephone service provider serves more than 5 million customers in 25 states and employs approximately 16,700 people. The move could bring a number of important  jobs to Stamford.

Anita Lamont, a Charter spokeswoman, also confirmed the move, stating, “We will be adding 200 jobs eventually,” she said. “It won’t start at that many.”

Strategically located in southwestern Connecticut, Stamford is less than one hour from midtown Manhattan by commuter rail or interstate highway. Much planning and effort has gone into the improvement and maintenance of Stamford’s downtown. Various City agencies and agencies affiliated with the City have been instrumental in the continued revitalization of the downtown area.

“It’s another corporate headquarters,” said Laure Aubuchon, Stamford’s director of economic development. “It’s another affirmation for Stamford, especially coming from St. Louis. When someone moves that far—they can go anywhere. And they came to Stamford, which I think is great.”
