LOUISVILLE, Colo. – AUGUST 26, 2011 – Louisville, CO, the home of Zayo Group and Envysion corporate headquarters, was named the #1 best place to live by CNN Money Magazine for the second time in two years. The employees of Zayo Group and Envysion congratulate the residents of Louisville for this honor.
Zayo Group is headquartered in Louisville’s Centennial Valley Business Park. Envysion, a sibling of Zayo though common investors, is located in the same building as Zayo Group. In 2010, Zayo, awarded one of Denver’s Fastest Growing Private Companies, moved from an office space in downtown Louisville into a larger space in the Business Park to accommodate its growth.
“Zayo has called Louisville ‘home’ since our founding in 2007,” said Dan Caruso, President and CEO of Zayo Group and Chairman of Envysion. “The residents, business owners, and municipal leaders of Louisville have a track record for knowing how to keep the community flourishing, and a great place to work and live. Congratulations Louisville…again!”
Louisville, which has 18,400 residents today, was founded in 1882 by immigrant coal miners. Louisville is six miles from Boulder and 25 miles from Denver. Its 30 miles of wooded biking and running paths wind through much of town. CNN Money magazine cited the combination of good jobs in tech, telecom, aerospace, clean energy and healthcare; affordable housing; little crime; and prime location at the foot of the Colorado Rocky Mountains to support the #1 ranking.
“We are proud to call Louisville home and be a part of the thriving technology community for which it is known. It is not only a great place to live, but also to work and run a business,” says Matt Steinfort, president and CEO of Envysion.
