SmartDraw began occupying office space at Three Hughes Landing, located at 1780 Hughes Landing Blvd., Ste. 1100, The Woodlands, in early October following its move from Southern California. In a statement, SmartDraw CEO Paul Stannard cited Texas' business and regulatory environment as well as the local cost of living as factors in the company's departure from the West Coast.
"We decided to relocate to Texas—and specifically to The Woodlands—for many reasons, including the opportunity for our employees to become homeowners – something that was out of reach for many of them in San Diego," Stannard said. "The Woodlands offers an exceptional quality of work-life experience in a beautiful natural setting and it was clear that our employees and our company would thrive in this community which is the ultimate office perk."
The private technology company was founded in 1994 and provides diagramming and visualization software services, including the SmartDraw tool and VisualScript platform, to thousands of public and private users worldwide. 858-225-3300. www.smartdraw.com
