SANDY, UTAH (June 27, 2018) – AvidXchange™, a leading fintech provider of accounts payable (AP) and payment automation solutions for midsize companies, today celebrated the opening of its new operations center in Sandy, Utah, alongside Mayor Kurt Bradburn and John Knotwell, State Representative and President & CEO of the Utah Technology Council. In addition to the $35 million investment, the company discussed its plans to add up to 218 jobs in the area over the next five years, as part of its western expansion plan. These strategic investments support the company’s dynamic and ongoing growth, including its many fintech partnerships, like the one it has with Mastercard.
“The opening of our new space helps usher us into the next era of AvidXchange,” stated Michael Praeger, CEO and Co-Founder of AvidXchange. “By having Utah as our second headquarters, we can foster true business continuity, enjoy a space that will accommodate our expansion and that reflects our company culture. With Sandy being home to so many parks and trails within walking or easy bike-ride distance of our new office, along with venues such as Sandy Amphitheater and Mountain America Credit Union Exposition Center, it already exudes the active lifestyle and entertainment vibe that meshes perfectly with the culture we have cultivated on the East Coast.”
