The event was held in the atrium of the 2 million-square-foot former Bell Labs facility in Holmdel.
In his address, iCIMS CEO Colin Day called his company’s relocation a personal “homecoming.”
“I feel as if I’ve come full circle,” Day said. “Early in my career as a recruiter, I placed exceptional candidates into Bell Labs.”
“The impressive technology created by talented people in this building,” Day continued, “will once again echo as iCIMS will usher in a new era of technology and innovation in the Garden State and continue our strong growth and profitability as we make our transition into Bell Works. (This) opens a new chapter for iCIMS.”
“What creating and retaining jobs does is to build communities,” Lizura said. “That's what job creation and economic development is all about.”
He also said that iCIMS’ decision to stay in the state, when opportunities to relocate had arisen, was validation of that fact.
“It's going to be home to discoveries, and businesses making those discoveries,” he said. “We are a technology state, we’ve always been a technology state and iCIMS’ decision to stay in the state of New Jersey, versus leave, ratifies New Jersey’s leadership in the technology community.”
