GoDaddy closing Denver-area office with 69 employees

BizJournals.com reported today that GoDaddy will be closing it’s Denver-area office that currently has 69 employees. GoDaddy is offering relocation for its 69 workers there.

“While the Scottsdale-based domain name registrar and small-business Web services provider is expanding in Arizona and other states, the Denver office is no longer a

focus for the company, said Elizabeth Driscoll, GoDaddy’s vice president of public relations.”

 

“This is not a reduction in force and it’s not about cost-cutting. It’s about consolidating talent in our major locations (and relocating),” Driscoll said. “We are providing severance in the event they do not continue their employment with GoDaddy or find other employment.”

The Denver office opened in 2007. It is not yet clear how many of the Denver employees will relocate.

Throughout the past year, the fast-growing company has expanded beyond its traditional offices in Arizona and Iowa, as well as Cambridge, Mass. GoDaddy built “centers of excellence” in Sunnyvale, Calif., the Seattle area(Kirkland, Wash.) and San Francisco.

 

GoDaddy has more than 4,000 employees. The company also has international offices in Asia, Europe, India, Canada and Latin America.
