Explosive Growth for Software Company Sends It to Chandler’s Price Corridor

by RaeAnne Marsh

Growth mode for Infusionsoft is bringing hundreds of new jobs to Chandler. The company, creator of all-in-one sales and marketing software for small businesses, is far surpassing its goals for this year, says co-founder and CEO Clate Mask. Having added 100 employees in the past 12 months, it expects to grow to 300 by the end of 2012 — with projected growth supporting employee numbers of 1,000 over the next two to four years.

Positioning itself for this expansion, Infusionsoft is moving to a new location in Chandler’s Price Corridor, and Mask credits the City of Chandler and the Arizona Commerce Authority as “true partners throughout this process” of selecting a site. The company is working with developer Douglas Allred Company to create a work environment to help it attract and retain a high-quality work force, with amenities that will include a café/hang-out place, recording studio for video and audio, and a kid-friendly play room for times when an employee needs to bring his or her child along to the office.

It’s not just demand for the software that has been accelerating, according to Mask. “Our proprietary educational method of teaching sales and marketing success to small businesses is spreading like wildfire.” So the new office will also include a training area for large groups — “Think the 200-person range,” says Mask, who plans that Infusionsoft’s headquarters “will become the training center for small businesses in Arizona and worldwide.” He expects Infusionsoft to play host to thousands of businesses from around the world at company training events, and notes, “InfusionCon, the company’s annual user conference, brings more than 1,000 small businesses to Phoenix every year for product training and marketing education.”

Additionally, Mask says, “Infusionsoft wants to put the Valley on the map as a great place to start and run a tech company.” He believes Chandler’s Price Corridor represents a budding center for tech companies and talent. “We anticipate that the City of Chandler and the Arizona Commerce Authority will use the Infusionsoft facility to attract tech companies to the Valley as an example of what can be accomplished here.”
