Virgin Mobile USA announced through a release that it has chosen the newest address for their headquarters. As part of its relaunch, the carrier will be transferring its headquarters to downtown Kansas City. According to CEO Dow Draper, the reason why they chose Kansas City as their new headquarters was because it had "an emphasis on entrepreneurship and technology, especially in the Downtown and Crossroads areas, which fits exactly with the direction for the new Virgin Mobile."
While there was no specific mention of where the new headquarters will open, the carrier says that these new offices will be completed towards the end of the year. Reports, however, show that company executives were looking for office spaces in Downtown, Crossroads Arts District, and the River Market wherein their demand for 7,000 to 8,000 square feet could be accommodated. Virgin Mobile is expected to decide on a location within a couple of weeks.
In line with this move, Virgin Mobile is set to hire over 50 new employees. As publicized on their website, they are looking for professionals to fill several positions such as directors of marketing, brand, communications, IT, and customer engagement. The website also enlists looking for an office manager, logistics manager, and a vice president of customer experience.
Virgin Mobile USA is currently working with the state on creating an incentive package which would be created along with the new jobs they require.
