We are happy to announce the relocation of our US Headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia!

We are happy to announce the relocation of our US Headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia!

The relocation of our US Headquarters to Atlanta comes as a part of our growth strategy. “Over the next few years, we plan to grow our Atlanta operations into equal status and importance as our global headquarters in Helsinki, Finland,” said our CEO Roope Heinilä.

Georgia is highlighted by Site Selection magazine as the country's top state for businesses. Atlanta was also chosen for its skilled talent pool. Market research firm Forrester identified Atlanta as among the country’s leading hotspots for available elite tech talent.

Roope Heinilä shared his excitement about the move. “We looked at several potential locations in the US when we decided to relocate our North American headquarters from New York,” he said.

In New York, we found that much of the talent pool was focused on the financial and media industries, whereas we see Atlanta as a growing tech hub with a vast and diverse talent pool. We’re looking forward to contributing to the growth of the local ecosystem.”

John Saunders, Honorary Consul of Finland in Atlanta and a partner at Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP added: “Smarp’s selection of Atlanta as its US headquarters underscores the continuing growth of Atlanta’s high-tech industry and reflects the expanding business links between Georgia and Finland”.

Assistance from The Georgia Department of Economic Development was instrumental in Smarp’s decision, along with key support from the Metro Atlanta Chamber and Georgia Power.

“Smarp’s new North American headquarters here provides our business community with more solutions for employee engagement and advocacy”, said Metro Atlanta Chamber President and CEO Hala Moddelmog. “I am excited to see another international company choose Georgia and join our strong technology ecosystem.”
