41st Parameter® Expands Arizona Operations With New Office in Scottsdale and Aggressive Hiring Plans

Scottsdale Mayor Lane and Phoenix Vice Mayor and Councilman Waring Join Monday's Ribbon-Cutting Event

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2014) - 41st Parameter®, a part of Experian and a leader in securing online relationships, officially opened the doors this week to its new office, located at 16260 N. 71st St. in Scottsdale. Alan Naumann, 41st Parameter's CEO and president, and Ori Eisen, the company's founder and chief innovation officer, were joined by Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane and Phoenix Vice Mayor and Councilman Jim Waring for an open house and ribbon-cutting event on Monday, June 16.

The company also announced plans to increase head count around the world, with a special focus on hiring in the greater Phoenix area. The company currently employs approximately 150 people, with more than 80 working from its new Scottsdale office. 41st Parameter is seeking candidates across all departments and hopes to add 70 new positions in the Scottsdale office.

"I am thrilled to see 41st Parameter expand so significantly, and so close to its original launch location in Scottsdale," said Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane. "It's evident that it has found the Valley to be a great place to build a business and recruit a quality workforce and I look forward to seeing more great things from it in the future."

"We are excited to have such an innovative, growing and community conscious company like 41st Parameter in the Valley," said Phoenix Vice Mayor Jim Waring. "Not only is this company dedicated to making the Internet a safer place to conduct business, they continue to seek out and hire talented people to help them in that mission."

Eisen founded 41st Parameter in Scottsdale in 2004. Since then, the company has expanded around the world with offices in Silicon Valley: San Jose and San Francisco, New York, Munich, London, Sao Paulo, Hong Kong and Tokyo. In 2013 the company was acquired by Experian, the leading global information services company. Rather than consolidating, Experian® has encouraged 41st Parameter to maintain and expand its operations.

"We're very excited about the brand new journey before us as we continue to expand in the greater Phoenix area," said Naumann. "Bringing employment opportunities to the community is very important to us, and we hope that you'll join us on our journey for many years to come."
