The Austin Landing offices that once served as the headquarters of data mining company Teradata have closed for the last time, a former executive with the company said Monday.
Bruce Langos, a former chief operating officer with Teradata who left the company in February 2016, said the local offices closed for the last time Friday afternoon.
“Part of the 400 people who helped me take the company public and grow it to $2.6 billion powerhouse,” Langos said Monday in an email to the Dayton Daily News, as he shared a photo of local employees of the company. “Some of the best, talented, smart people in Ohio.”
“They closed it down on Friday,” Langos said in an interview. “So it’s locked up now. Other than the Teradata real estate people, who will be doing some things there, there was no one else left there.”
“When I left there were 350 people in that building,” he added. “Most of their roles have been transitioned to other locations.”
Langos serves today as executive director of the Criminal Intelligence Center of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. He is also a member of the Wright State University board of trustees.
Teradata announced last June that it intended to close its offices in Miami Twp. — seen for a time as the company’s headquarters since 2007 — and move most of the functions there to the San Diego area.
“As the company evaluated its footprint and identified ways to make its decision-making, systems and processes more efficient, it determined that closing its Dayton office and locating its headquarters in San Diego better positions Teradata for the long-term,” Teradata said in an Securities and Exchange Commission filing announcing the decision last year.
A message seeking comment was sent to a Teradata spokeswoman Monday.
Former Dayton company NCR acquired Teradata’s technology in the late 1990s. The business existed as a division of NCR, then was spun off to independence in 2007 and soon became a publicly traded company on its own.
“One door closes and another one opens,” Langos said Monday. “Hopefully, we’ll get something else.”
