November 17, 2016 -- Mentor, OH -- CardinalCommerce (http://www.cardinalcommerce.com), the global leader in payment authentication in digital commerce, tomorrow officially opens its new global corporate headquarters in the city of Mentor, Ohio.

The new facility employs a host of innovative design features intended to spark creativity and foster teamwork.
State Senator John Eklund will be on hand to help dedicate the new facility, which will enable Cardinal to continue to expand and create additional high-tech job opportunities within the Cleveland metropolitan region in engineering, technology, cyber security, finance, digital marketing and sales.
CardinalCommerce has created more than 200 jobs in Ohio since its establishment. For the construction of its new facilities, the company received a grant of $600K as part of the JobsOhio initiative.
Cardinal has forged a strong relationship with the city of Mentor, Lake County, and the community in the Cleveland metropolitan region for more than 10 years, since its founding in Mentor in 1999. State, county and city officials worked with the company to provide incentives for Cardinal to locate its new headquarters operation within Ohio and specifically within the Cleveland metropolitan region. Ohio state officials and industry groups have placed a heavy emphasis on continuing to grow the region’s high-tech industry.
The new headquarters facility boasts impressive specs, including:
