NCR’s CEO implies no decision yet on Atlanta move

Officials for NCR, the financial technology giant, have for the first time publicly acknowledged that they are considering moving operations from Gwinnett County to the city of Atlanta.

But in brief comments to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution today, NCR chairman and chief executive Bill Nuti implied the company has not made a decision on such a shift from its Duluth headquarters.

“I don’t know about that yet,” Nuti said after NCR’s annual shareholder meeting Monday morning. “Too far out.”

The AJC recently reported that documents show NCR considered asking Georgia Tech’s foundation to spend up to $30 million to buy land for a new corporate campus near the intown school to house as many as 4,000 employees. The idea was floated in February as NCR explored moving its headquarters from Gwinnett County, in part to be close to the Tech campus, the documents show.

But even after that disclosure, the company had publicly declined comment.

On Monday, an NCR board member — Kurt Kuehn, the chief financial officer of Sandy Springs-based UPS — said even if a move from the suburbs to Atlanta comes about, the news for the region overall is positive.

“It is great they are continuing to invest in Atlanta,” he said.
