"Jacksonville offers a sizeable pool of local and veteran talent that will support the launch and success of our cyber security initiatives and continued expansion."
RADNOR, Pa. (PRWEB) August 22, 2019
Emtec, Inc., an IT consultancy, today announced the relocation of its global headquarters from Radnor, Pennsylvania to Jacksonville, Florida effective, September 1st, 2019. Emtec has had a solid presence in the Jacksonville area for over the last 18 years, supporting local Florida-based enterprise, public sector and education clients.
The headquarters relocation is part of a larger initiative to:
- Grow Emtec’s footprint and client base in Florida and the southeastern US
- Expand support for existing clients throughout the region
- Support the launch of its new rapidly-growing practice focused on Cyber Security services
“The need for Cyber Security services is exploding with potential and our strategic digital and cyber partners have uniquely positioned Emtec to make a bold impact out the gate with its cutting-edge managed offerings,” said Douglas Goodall, the managing director of Emtec Infrastructure Services.
Emtec envisions doubling current headcount in the Jacksonville and surrounding areas over the next 2 years including key staffing for new cyber security initiatives.
“Jacksonville offers a sizeable pool of local and veteran talent that will support the launch and success of our cyber security initiatives and continued expansion,” said Goodall. “We are extremely proud of the work we have done with Duval County Public Schools (DCPS), JEA, the City of Jacksonville and many other regional Florida enterprises and look forward to expanding our presence here and throughout the southern region.”
Gregory Chandler, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer added: “When we started looking at moving our headquarters, we had numerous options available. Not only have the City of Jacksonville and DCPS been great partners for over fifteen years, but when we mentioned our search, the local community rallied around the idea of Jacksonville being our top choice. In addition to the growing economy and talent base, we found the quality of life/low cost of living in Jacksonville and Florida compelling.”
“The Jacksonville area has seen substantial growth over the last 18 years with market leaders in the areas of manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, technology and transportation all making similar moves or investments in the area to support their growth goals,” said Emtec President, Sunil Misra. “We look forward to working more closely with both our public sector clients as well as these market-leading enterprises to help them move the needle and drive tangible value from their IT investments. Also, 220 days of sunshine a year doesn’t hurt.”
