Constant Contact Chooses Centerra for Corporate Expansion

Published: June 4, 2008

LOVELAND, CO – June 4, 2008 – McWHINNEY is proud to announce that Constant Contact®, Inc., a leading provider of email marketing and online surveys for small organizations, has chosen Centerra as its second location to expand beyond its corporate headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts. Slated to complete a build-to-suit, 50,000 square foot office building in Precision Office Park, Constant Contact expects to employ 50 workers at its Centerra location by year end.

“McWHINNEY couldn’t be more excited to welcome Constant Contact to Centerra, to Loveland, and to Northern Colorado. Their leadership in the small business market is demonstrated through their 185,000 customers,” said Chad McWhinney, CEO & Co-Founder, McWHINNEY. “We look forward to providing them with a state-of-the-art second home.”

“After examining different locations around the United States, Centerra and Northern Colorado stood out on many fronts. A great location, a highly-skilled workforce in close proximity to several higher education entities, and the reputation of McWHINNEY were among the reasons for our decision to come to Northern Colorado,” said Tom Howd, Senior Vice President, Customer Operations, Constant Contact.

The company will initially move into a 9,250 square foot temporary office at Hahns Peak One, 4850 Hahns Peak Drive, until their permanent 50,000 square foot office is completed in Precision Office Park, south of the corporate headquarters of Heska Corporation. The build-to-suit office construction has begun with an estimated completion in the first half of 2009.

“It has been exciting to work with Constant Contact to find an immediate home to accommodate their opening this summer. We know their new 50,000 square foot facility will provide them with the space needed to support their company goals,” said Ron Kuehl, Vice President – Real Estate, McWHINNEY. Kuehl handled the lease and sales transaction for McWHINNEY.

“Centerra has more than 6,000 employees within its boundaries today. One-third of those positions are in primary employment with above average wages. With the addition of Constant Contact, Centerra will solidify its growing position as a regional center for high-skill employment, a position that has attracted knowledge workers in key industries such as customer service support, life sciences, and defense. The Northern Colorado Economic Development Corporation (NCEDC) played a key role in obtaining these new primary jobs for Northern Colorado,” said Rocky Scott, Principal, Business Development & Strategy, McWHINNEY. “We commend them for their great work.”

“NCEDC has been pleased to work with a quality company such as Constant Contact over the past year,” said Maury Dobbie, President/CEO, Northern Colorado Economic Development Corporation (NCEDC). “After a thorough analysis of our workforce, educational institutions, real estate options, and quality of life advantages, we are proud they chose to create new primary jobs in Northern Colorado.”

McWHINNEY is leading the construction of Constant Contact’s 50,000 square foot build-to-suit office building.
