Citrix, a homegrown publicly traded technology company, will expand its offices in Fort Lauderdale, generate 200 jobs and $7.5 million in capital investments over the next three years, Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s office announced Friday.
Citrix began operations in Fort Lauderdale in 1989, and currently employs about 1,600 people in Fort Lauderdale and 8,800 employees globally. The company is primarily engaged in designing and developing solutions for mobility, desktop virtualization, cloud networking, cloud platforms, collaboration and data sharing.
“Continuing to build our team in Fort Lauderdale as Citrix grows is a reflection of our commitment to the community where the company was founded,” Guy Desautels, vice president of Facilities and Real Estate at Citrix and Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance board member, said in a press release.
Enterprise Florida, the state’s public-private economic development agency, declined to disclose the local and state incentives package on Friday, citing a “confidentiality period.”
