SAN FRANCISCO—November 30, 2018—McKesson Corporation (NYSE:MCK) today announced the relocation of its corporate headquarters from San Francisco, California to Las Colinas, Texas, effective April 1, 2019, expanding upon its presence in the Dallas area.
“We are excited to strengthen our presence in Texas and make Las Colinas our official global headquarters,” said John H. Hammergren, chairman and chief executive officer, McKesson Corporation. “Governor 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’s Las Colinas campus is already a key hub for the company. Employees at the North Texas location perform vital functions for the company in areas such as operations, information technology, finance and accounting, marketing and sales, administration and support, purchasing, and project management.
"I’m delighted McKesson, a Fortune 6 company, is making Texas the home of its new global headquarters,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. "The company has a long record of success in our state. McKesson’s expansion is an example of the kind of high-quality companies and jobs Texas has attracted as a result of our focus on economic growth, and I am proud to welcome them to the Lone Star State.”
McKesson’s Las Colinas campus has achieved a LEED Gold certification, recognizing its resource efficiency, as well as a WELL Building Silver certification, the first building standard focused solely on human health and wellness. Elements of the building are designed to support employee productivity and wellness, empowering employees to work the way they like while fostering team collaboration amidst an array of amenities and enhanced technology capabilities.
“We are proud that McKesson has decided to make Irving/Las Colinas its official, corporate home,” said Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer. “Irving is an amazing city with talented, hard-working people and wonderful amenities. We’re delighted to have yet another Fortune 500 company make Irving their global headquarters.”
Following the relocation of its headquarters, McKesson will continue to have a strong presence in California, employing more than 1,400 people, primarily in distribution operations and sales. The company opened a new distribution center for its medical-surgical division in Roseville, CA earlier this year. McKesson Ventures will remain in San Francisco, along with a technology development team for McKesson’s US Oncology Network.
