Extu Moves Headquarters Steven Prebble

Extu, a provider of channel marketing and sales solutions founded in 1993, has moved into a new headquarters at 4170 Ashford Dunwoody Rd. in Atlanta. The 13,000-square-foot space in Ashford Greens features an open-concept design, the company says.
"The new location offers improved accessibility and convenience for our staff,” explains Steve Prebble, Extu’s Chief Executive Officer. “Its proximity to major highways, as well as local dining, hotels, meeting spaces and venues, supports our objective to provide a workspace that is both modern and conducive to our collaborative and innovative work culture.”
Prebble adds, “Extu is both rooted in Atlanta and a global firm, an identity that is well-reflected in this energizing, expansive new space. We’ve done away with cubicles in favor of an open floor plan and added more conference space to foster communication and internal growth, aligning with the open culture of our brand.”
The building features a bright, flexible workspace, in addition to the building amenities, which include a gym, on-site cafeteria, ample parking, shared meeting space and high-end interiors, and more, the company says.
