Town and Country-based Charter Communications will relocate its headquarters to Stamford, Connecticut but intends to keep the bulk of its workforce here.
The company plans to move fewer than 100 jobs from its headquarters, which currently employs about 600. The Internet, phone and cable TV company employs a total of about 2,800 in metro St. Louis. The company also plans to hire another 300 people in St. Louis in coming months for its “Charter Business” commercial operation, call center and other functions, said Charter spokeswoman Anita Lamont.
The loss of the headquarters and top brass, however, leaves the St. Louis region as home to eight instead of nine Fortune 500 companies. Read more on St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
