Apr. 18—ATLANTA — Gov. Brian Kemp has announced that TeamViewer, a global provider of secure remote connectivity solutions and workplace digitalization technology, will invest significantly in opening a sales and business development office in Atlanta, creating more than 100 jobs in the metro area over the next four years. The new office will be used to support customer growth in Georgia and across North America.

"Our first-class education and training programs have helped the state create a pipeline of tech talent that receives international attention and investment," Kemp said in a news release. "Georgia has quickly become the East Coast's software and technology hub, and I am grateful to TeamViewer for creating jobs for hard-working Georgians in the metro area."

Headquartered in Goppingen, Germany, TeamViewer is a global cloud-based technology solutions provider focused on supporting customers' digital transformation initiatives with software to improve processes and workflows along the entire value chain. TeamViewer's offerings include remote desktop support, remote access, augmented reality solutions combined with Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, data analytics, and other tools for online collaboration.

"TeamViewer continues to grow its business organically and through acquisitions all around the globe, adding customers and offering new connectivity, IoT and AR solutions that solve real-world business problems," Finn Faldi, president of TeamViewer Americas, said. "As a business and industrial hub of the South, Atlanta is a great location for TeamViewer, and our new office will help us better serve current and new enterprise software customers throughout North America. We look forward to adding more staff and building strong ties to the community."

TeamViewer is currently narrowing down its location search for offices in the metro Atlanta area.
