McKesson Brings More Than 500 Jobs to Roswell

By December 19, 2018News

McKesson Corporation, a global leader in healthcare supply chain management solutions, retail pharmacy, and healthcare information technology, will be moving its Atlanta Hub to Roswell, Georgia in 2019. This move will relocate existing employees from the company’s current office in Alpharetta bringing more than 500 high-quality jobs to the city of Roswell, with an anticipated move-in date in the summer of 2019.

With this move, McKesson will become a Top 5 company in Roswell by number of employees. The company has signed a 10-year lease for 104,000 square feet in the Stonebridge I building of Sanctuary Park, located at 1110 Sanctuary Parkway, which is the portion of the office park within Roswell city limits.

“Adding this caliber of corporate citizen to our city, along with this many high-quality jobs, is incredibly significant for the economic health and prosperity of our community, and we are honored to have partnered with McKesson and all those involved to make this happen,” said Steve Stroud, executive director of Roswell Inc. “This is also a big win for Georgia, as this relocation keeps these jobs here in the state.”

“We are excited to join a community that reflects our focus on employee well-being, sustainability and innovation. The Sanctuary Park campus offers our employees access to jogging trails, fitness facilities and other important amenities,” said Perry Guinn, vice president, Global Real Estate, McKesson Corporation. “Our new space will feature an open floorplan and technology-enhanced meeting rooms to help connect our employees in new ways and foster a collaborative atmosphere.”

Major factors in the decision to relocate to Roswell include location, availability of space, and quality of life. This location is also in Roswell’s Opportunity Zone, an area of the city designated as part of the state incentive program that provides tax credits for net new jobs created within the State of Georgia.  

“I am excited to welcome McKesson to the City of Roswell,” said Roswell Mayor Lori Henry. “I look forward to a long, prosperous partnership.”
