Today, Governor Rick Scott announced that The ADT Corporation, a provider of electronic security, interactive home and business automation and alarm monitoring services, will bring 120 new jobs over the next two years to its corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida. These new jobs will add to the nearly 700 ADT employees already based in South Florida.

“Not only is ADT’s continuing growth in Florida a win for the state’s business community and the economy, but it’s a significant benefit to Florida’s families as well. The jobs and career opportunities that will come with this expansion are vital to our efforts for getting Florida back to work,” said Governor Rick Scott. “Additionally, ADT’s progress validates that Florida is on the right track for creating an environment where businesses can succeed.”

The State of Florida, Enterprise Florida, the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County, and the City of Boca Raton have been important partners in this successful corporate expansion project. The creation of these new corporate positions at ADT will span legal, human resources, information technology and other functional areas.

“The State of Florida, Enterprise Florida, the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County, and the City of Boca Raton have each played a pivotal role in helping us to expand our footprint here in South Florida,” said Naren Gursahaney, ADT’s Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to partnering with state and local leaders to help us hire passionate and skilled employees who share ADT’s commitment to helping save lives.”

“We are delighted that ADT will be bringing more jobs to Palm Beach County over the next two years,” said Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County. “The company is a great place to work, offering terrific amenities and a positive work environment for its employees. We are pleased that ADT has chosen Boca Raton as its home.”

The Business Development Board worked extensively with the ADT team over the last several months, assisting with information on the business climate and workforce in Palm Beach County.

“Over the past year, I have had the chance to build relationships with many of the employees and executives at ADT,” said Susan Whelchel, Mayor of Boca Raton. “As a result, I know firsthand about the company’s collaborative culture and I am continually impressed by the employees’ commitment to make a difference in the communities where they live and work. I look forward to being part of ADT’s future.”
