STAMFORD, Conn. – Charter Communications, Inc. officially marked the opening of its new headquarters in downtown Stamford on Monday, June 6, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by elected officials, including Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont and Stamford Mayor Caroline Simmons. Located in the city’s revitalized Harbor Point neighborhood, Charter’s new corporate campus provides the company’s Stamford-based employees with an amenity-rich, commuter-friendly workspace with room for continued growth.
“Over the past 10 years we have been proud members of the Stamford community and have experienced tremendous growth,” said Thomas M. Rutledge, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Charter. “Our Stamford headquarters has grown from a handful of employees in a small portion of a single floor to 1,700 employees in a two-building, 900,000 square-foot campus. This region provides access to a robust talent base, and at Charter we are committed to attracting and retaining highly-skilled employees who live and work in this area, and to contributing to the growth and success of this community.”
“Charter is a leading Connecticut-based business, invested in the success of the state, Stamford and the many communities it serves across the country,” said Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont. “The company’s continued growth is a testament to its commitment to employees, customers and the communities in which they live and work.”
“We are so thrilled and grateful to have Charter Communications in Stamford,” Mayor Simmons said. “Charter has brought over 1,700 jobs and invested over $500 million in this headquarters, bringing economic prosperity to our city. Charter has also been an excellent corporate partner, contributing to philanthropic efforts including a five year commitment to funding job training programs within our Community Action Agency in the South End. We are so grateful and happy to see Charter’s continued growth in Stamford.”
