“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 statement in its Securities and Exchange Commission filing

“Even though we’ve had multiple conversations with the company, they gave no indication they would leave, nor did they ask for our help.”

— Jeff Hoagland, president and CEO of the Dayton Development Coalition

— State Rep. Niraj Antani, R-Miami Twp.

“Change is inevitable. While we hate to see a quality neighbor leave the property, the beauty of a well established mixed-use community like Austin Landing is that when change occurs, options for reuse can be implemented to add even greater value to the property.”

— VisCap Development, asset manager of Austin Landing

“I think it gives us an opportunity to locate a company that would love to move into their spot quickly.”

— Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman

“I was saddened to learn yesterday that Teradata will be leaving but I was not terribly surprised given the company’s deep roots in California. Hopefully a number of their employees will choose to remain in the Dayton area and I and my colleagues will be looking to facilitate that process.”

— State Sen. Peggy Lehner, R-Kettering
