(GWINNETT-METRO ATLANTA) January 28, 2019 – Partnership Gwinnett welcomed Gwinnett County’s newly relocated and expanded businesses at the annual New Company Reception Thursday evening. The event is designed to honor and recognize the companies for their growth, success and investment in the community. The reception was attended by public and private Partnership Gwinnett investors, as well as representatives from the new and expanding Gwinnett organizations.
“The success of these growing companies is a testament to the work that has been done to build and support economic development throughout the County,” said Gwinnett County Board of Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash. “We welcome each of them to Gwinnett County and celebrate their contributions to the business community.”
The New Company Reception, which took place at Laundry Events in Lawrenceville, included representatives from Convergint Technologies, Gezolan, Hapag-Lloyd, OneLogin, TTEC and many more. The reception provided the new companies a platform to share the key factors behind their expansion or relocation to Gwinnett, as well as the opportunity to meet both public and private partners of Partnership Gwinnett.
“Our business demands a strong logistics infrastructure and we were happy to find that in Gwinnett,” said Hercules Angelatos, Senior Vice-President of the Business Service Center for Hapag-Lloyd. “We have received unparalleled support from the State and the local community and we are happy to be here this evening to meet other new businesses and celebrate our continued success.”
Several non-profit organizations were also in attendance to welcome Gwinnett’s newest companies; representatives from the Gwinnett Coalition for Health & Human Services, Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation, Georgia Commute Options and more had the opportunity to establish relationships with the new companies.
“We’ve seen great success at TTEC in the Atlanta market,” said TTEC Duluth Site Lead Kelsey Stafford. “Our new Customer Care Center in Gwinnett allows us to expand our footprint in the region and have access to the excellent workforce in the community.”
“We look forward to hosting this one of a kind event every year,” said Partnership Gwinnett Chief Economic Development Officer Nick Masino. “Gwinnett continues to attract and retain world-class companies with its exceptional workforce, advanced infrastructure and strategic location, and this event allows us to welcome these companies to the community and give them the opportunity to make connections with fellow businesses.”
