Global IT and product engineering services company MindTree has
announced that it will open its first major U.S. Development Centre in
Gainesville, Florida.  MindTree’s expansion of its U.S presence is
expected to bring some 400 new jobs to the Gainesville area beginning late this

“The Southeast is an untapped region for MindTree from a talent and
client acquisition standpoint.  Setting up our first major U.S.
Development Centre in Florida gives us a foothold into this region” said Scott
Staples, president, Americas at  MindTree. “Gainesville, Florida is a
great city with many positives: a thriving population of IT and engineering
talent; a great place for our MindTree Minds to call home and; a strong
partnership with the University of Florida.”

MindTree’s new U.S. Development Centre reflects the Company’s strategy
to broaden its IT and software consulting offerings to its clients in the U.S.

“This expansion is great news for both Gainesville and for the entire
state of Florida” said Governor Rick Scott.  “MindTree’s choice to expand
in our state confirms that our state is doing the right things to attract
innovative businesses like those in the IT sector. I look forward to signing
the legislation that will put my Job Creation and Economic Development Agenda
in place and make Florida even more attractive to companies looking to expand
in a business-friendly state like ours.”

“As we encourage Florida’s students to study science, technology, engineering
and maths, it is great to see high-tech companies like MindTree come to our
state,” said Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll. “In addition to making sure Florida
has the best-educated workforce, our state is making sure business growth is
not hindered by increasing taxes and burdensome regulation.”

MindTree will be renovating and repurposing an existing structure
located across from Gainesville’s Innovation Hub and Innovation Square. This
location will provide MindTree with close access to the University of Florida’s
Engineering and Computer Science programmes.

“Gainesville is home to the State of Florida’s top research university,
the University of Florida, which fosters the development of innovative
businesses seeking to change the world,” said Michael Gallagher, chairman of
the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce.  “MindTree is just such a
company, and we are thrilled to welcome its U.S. Development Center to our
community.  I believe the ecosystem formed between MindTree, the
University of Florida and the Gainesville community will be a successful model
many others will seek to follow in the future.”
