The company’s San Jose, Calif, campus becomes West Coast regional headquarters and new digital innovation center.
Align Technology Inc has established its new global corporate headquarters in Tempe, Ariz. The company’s San Jose campus remains the hub for its global product and marketing organization, and will become home to its new digital innovation center, currently under construction. As part of the new corporate headquarters move, Align Technology president and chief executive officer Joe Hogan, chief financial officer and senior vice president, global finance John Morici, senior vice president, chief legal and regulatory officer Julie Coletti, and senior vice president, global human resources Stuart Hockridge have relocated their offices to Tempe.
Approximately 150 employees, mostly in corporate general and administrative roles, have been offered relocation packages. These employees have the option to relocate to Tempe, or to continue working from their current locations. According to the company, relocation is not required and there are no layoffs associated with this move.
Hogan commented on the company’s new global corporate headquarters: “Innovation is the heart of Align and core to who we are as an organization. As leaders in digital orthodontics and dentistry, we must continue to invest in new products and technology that benefit our doctor customers and their patients. This change will afford many new opportunities for Align to expand its industry-leading digital capabilities through innovation in San Jose while achieving greater, long-term operating efficiencies in Arizona. Our employees are key to our continued success, and throughout this change we remain committed to supporting all employees, whether they decide to relocate or remain in their current locations. We chose Tempe for our new corporate headquarters for many reasons, including its proximity to San Jose, favorable corporate operating environment, low cost of living, and overall quality of life.
