OneTrust to Create 500 Jobs in Atlanta
Friday, September 22nd, 2017
Gov. Nathan Deal announced that OneTrust, a global privacy management software company, will create 500 jobs and invest $5 million in a Fulton County facility expansion. New jobs at the facility will include positions in sales, consulting, marketing and software engineering.
“Georgia’s status as a top technology hub continues to attract and retain innovative industry leaders like OneTrust,” said Deal. “With years of experience in Georgia’s business community, OneTrust’s leadership recognizes the advantages of operating and expanding in our competitive economic environment. By reinvesting in Georgia’s strategic resources and our deep talent pool, OneTrust will grow its access to the global market and reach its customer base more efficiently. This announcement is a testament to the strength of our technology infrastructure and will further strengthen Georgia’s reputation among technology companies in the global marketplace.”
Backed by the founders of Atlanta-based Manhattan Associates and AirWatch, OneTrust is co-headquartered in Atlanta and London. The company is comprised of a global team of privacy and technology experts and currently employs more than 200 individuals worldwide.
“OneTrust plays a critical role in helping global organizations comply with international privacy regulations, and Atlanta serves as the best city for our business with its easy access to global markets,” said Alan Dabbiere, co-chairman of OneTrust. “Having previously built two successful technology companies in this city, I believe Atlanta has the top technology talent pool for building a leading, successful software company to serve our global customer base.”
OneTrust is used by more than 1,500 organizations globally to comply with data privacy regulations across sectors and jurisdictions, including the General Data Protection Regulation, the renowned and transformative new governance coming out of the European Union. The OneTrust platform helps companies track the full lifecycle of their personal data flows and evaluate them against global regulations to understand risks, communicate directly with customers, employees and vendors to capture consent, handle privacy-related requests and respond appropriately in the event of an incident.
“OneTrust is another example of how Atlanta has become a global destination for technology companies in rapidly growing industry sectors like data security,” said Dr. Eloisa Klementich, president and CEO of Invest Atlanta. “Since the start of 2016, Atlanta has facilitated more than 6,000 new technology jobs and over $600 million of investment through technology company relocations and expansions.”
Georgia Department of Economic Development Director of Life Sciences and Corporate Solutions E. Jane Caraway represented the Global Commerce division in partnership with Invest Atlanta, the Metro Atlanta Chamber and Georgia Power.
“Congratulations to Alan Dabbiere and the OneTrust team on plans to grow their business and create jobs in metro Atlanta,” said Hala Moddelmog, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Alan and his partners have established a solid track record of success, and we know that this new venture will be another home run. OneTrust’s growth in Atlanta will strengthen our technology and cybersecurity sectors and will add to our vibrant knowledge-based economy.”
“Governor Deal has made great investments in our technology infrastructure, and we are excited that a pioneer in privacy management, OneTrust, chose Georgia to grow,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Georgia has become a magnet for technology-driven companies, which keeps us at the forefront of the global marketplace. These assets, along with state and local government resources, will be of great service to OneTrust.”
