ANCHORAGE – August 17, 2016 – GCI Business, a unit of GCI, announced today that it has launched an initiative to expand the services it offers to business customers in the Pacific Northwest and Texas. As part of this initiative, GCI Business opened a new Pacific Northwest headquarters office earlier this month at 901 Fifth Avenue in Seattle effectively doubling its footprint in the region and providing room for growth.

“GCI Business has served business customers in the Pacific Northwest and Texas for many years. Our customers there and in Alaska are facing new challenges and opportunities as communications and IT technology and service delivery models evolve,” said Martin Cary, senior vice president and general manager of GCI Business. “This evolution opens the door to efficiency and effectiveness gains, but the transition to the new can be difficult and complex.”

We look forward to providing our solutions to customers throughout rapidly growing markets of the Pacific Northwest and Texas.”
