Corbis To Close Calgary Operation

Posted on 10/20/2011 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Corbis has announced that it will be closing its entire Calgary operation at the beginning of 2012. The "planned office closure" will consolidate all of the company’s Technology and Marketing activities in Seattle. Corbis is expecting to add technology and marketing positions to the Seattle headquarters. Veer will continue to operate as a separate brand. It is unclear whether any of the personnel currently working on the Veer brand will move to Seattle.

About 80 positions will be eliminated in Calgary, but it is expected that about 70, mostly technology and marketing positions, will be added to the Seattle headquarters operation.
