The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) announced recently that Windsor Health GroupSM (WHG) is opening its Atlanta executive offices later this month. The company will employ more than 65 people at its Buckhead office with another 15 in a satellite office in Duluth. WHG, through its subsidiaries, serves more than 230,000 customers with a variety of insurance offerings for the senior population. WHG is a subsidiary of Munich Re, one of the world’s leading reinsurers. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and economic development officials met with Munich Re and WHG company leadership during an international mission to Europe in May 2011, which helped facilitate this business opportunity for Georgia.
“Windsor Health Group’s decision to open its executive offices in Georgia illustrates the true importance of the international economic development missions we lead, which ultimately translate into real opportunities for Georgia,” said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Cummiskey. “I’m confident that the competitive business assets in the metro Atlanta region and statewide will benefit Windsor Health Group’s new location currently, and as the company plans for future growth in Georgia.”
WHG has leased office space in the 3405 Piedmont building in Buckhead and has a smaller office in the Gwinnett Center in Duluth. The company employs more than 1,000 people in operational centers in Nashville, Tenn., Bellingham, Wash., and at regional sales offices across the country.
“We are extremely happy with the work the state of Georgia has done to make our transition to Atlanta a smooth one,” said WHG CEO Michael Muchnicki. “We wanted a place with a capable workforce, great standard of living and easy accessibility, and we get that and more in Atlanta. We believe Georgia will be a tremendous asset as we grow our company.”
Backed by a business climate that ranks among the best in the nation, Georgia remains a competitive location for headquarters, back-office and call center operations. The state is also home to more than 3,500 international companies that own and maintain facilities and offices in Georgia.
GDEcD project manager Lauren Salas worked with WHG to assist in locating the executive offices in Georgia, with assistance from resources from Georgia’s European Office in Munich, Germany.
