Ernst & Young plans Global IT Center in Alpharetta, now home to one third of Georgia’s tech companies and a quarter of Atlanta’s top employers

Coming on the heels of General Motors’ announcement earlier this year that it plans to invest $26 million in a technology development center in Roswell, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that Ernst & Young recently announced plans to open an $8.5 million Global IT Center in Alpharetta.

As NorthFulton.com reports, Earnst & Young’s announcement came on the first anniversary of the formation of the Alpharetta Technology Commission, a milestone celebrated at a dinner attended by Georgia’s Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle, and more than 600 tech companies within the Alpharetta city limits, where a third of Georgia’s technology-related companies and a quarter of Atlanta’s top employers are now located.
