Phoenix lands Calif.-based tech company office

PHOENIX — A California firm that helps companies connect with customers
through social media said it has opened a Phoenix office and plans to hire more
than 200 employees within three years.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer touted Tuesday’s announcement by Mountain View,
Calif.-based Gigya as the latest sign that her efforts to cut business tax rates
and regulations is drawing new companies to the state.

Gigya CEO Patrick Salyer said the fast air access between Phoenix and the
Silicon Valley, ease of setting up shop and available trained workforce made
Phoenix the company’s top choice. The company will receive $450,000 for training
from the Arizona Commerce Authority.

Salyer said the company has begun hiring and expects to have 50 sales, account
and client management employees here by the end of the year.
