Deluxe Corp. opened its FinTech and Customer Innovation Center at 5565 Glenridge Connector in Sandy Springs, where it will eventually employ more than 700 workers with an average salary of $91,000.
“We’ve already had our first customer events at the space, where we’re working on code development of new products with our customers. Our team has also begun occupying the space, and the management team is holding regular meetings there,” CEO Barry McCarthy said.
He said Deluxe is pleased with the location near Ga. 400, I-285 and MARTA, along with great amenities for its employees.
“Of course, COVID has slowed down our return to the office, as we would expect. And we have advised our workforce that we don’t expect people to be back on our normal schedule until after the first of October,” McCarthy said.

The challenges from the pandemic are not unique to Deluxe, he said. Every business deals with keeping employees safe, making sure workplaces are safe and well sanitized. He expects employees to be in the office more often than not. The future for the company will be a hybrid model with office and remote workdays.
The company continues its path to hiring 709 tech workers for the Sandy Springs office, which will occur over what he called a reasonable period of time.
“A primary motivation for us to have our facility here in metro Atlanta is the great access to fintech talent, the concentration of which here is higher than anywhere else in the country,” McCarthy said.
