McKesson Corp. announced that it will relocate its corporate headquarters to Las Colinas, TX, from San Francisco, effective April 1, 2019. The Las Colinas location is already a key site for McKesson, with employees there involved in operations, information technology, finance and accounting, marketing and sales, administration and support, purchasing, and project management. "We are excited to strengthen our presence in Texas and make Las Colinas our official global headquarters," said John Hammergren, chairman and CEO, McKesson Corp. "Gov. Abbott and the Irving/Las Colinas community have provided tremendous support since we opened our Las Colinas campus last April. Making this move will improve efficiency, collaboration and cost-competitiveness, while providing an exceptional work environment for our employees." McKesson will still have a strong presence in California after the move, employing more than 1,400 personnel, primarily in distribution operations and sales. In April, McKesson announced a multi-year strategic growth plan. As part of that initiative, said Brian Tyler, president and COO, "we've developed a hub location strategy, co-locating people based on the type of work they do to improve teamwork, advance innovation and increase efficiency. Bringing employee groups together in key locations will make McKesson a more streamlined and agile company, complementing our investments and improving operating profit growth for the organization."
