AutoAlert has selected Kansas City, MO for the company’s corporate headquarters, which it is moving from Irvine, CA. The automotive software communications company expects to add an additional 200 positions to its workforce. The new office location will be operational by Spring 2017.
Kansas City competed with several major markets for this project. After a comprehensive evaluation of potential locations, AutoAlert selected the city due to its revitalized and growing downtown area, access to tech talent, and convenient transportation options. In addition to its new headquarters, AutoAlert will maintain offices in Irvine, CA; Boston, MA; and Manchester U.K.
“The team loves the downtown location and the opportunity it provides. This area is rich with innovation and AutoAlert is excited to be added to the mix,” said AutoAlert CEO Mike Dullea, “AutoAlert is raising the bar to bring high paying tech jobs right to the heart of Kansas City and the Silicon Prairie.”
“The Kansas City area is getting major buzz across the U.S. as a great metropolitan community where companies like AutoAlert can hire and attract talented people,” said Tim Cowden, president and CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council. “Companies are attracted to KC for our worker productivity, affordability and central location.”
Founded in 2002, AutoAlert is the industry’s leading data-mining and trade-cycle management platform, focused on helping dealerships identify high-quality sales opportunities, increase gross margin, and improve customer retention.
