ARBITRON is moving its headquarters from NEW YORK to COLUMBIA, MD, the company announced TODAY. "I want to live and work where the operational core of our business resides," said Pres./CRO MICHAEL SKARZYNSKI. "COLUMBIA is home to ARBITRON's state-of-the-art research campus and it’s important for me and our executives to work in the same location as the teams who are creating new solutions for our current customers and new services for our expanding markets."
"ARBITRON's decision to move its headquarters to MARYLAND will build on the company's already significant presence here and add to the economic climate of our State," said Governor MARTIN O'MALLEY. "MARYLAND is continuing to outperform the nation in many key economic indicators, which when combined with our highly educated workforce, gives ARBITRON a unique competitive advantage to grow in today's ever-changing business climate."
"The efforts of the State of MARYLAND and HOWARD COUNTY to foster a positive environment for local businesses were important factors in our decision to make COLUMBIA our home base," added SKARZYNSKI. "We look forward to furthering our partnership with the state and the county as we grow our business and contribute to the local community and economy."
ARBITRON's headquarters are now located at the company’s existing facility at 9705 Patuxent Woods Drive in COLUMBIA. The NEW YORK location will remain open and continue to operate as a sales office.
