Ed Heffernan
President & CEO
Alliance Data Systems


 “We moved Alliance Data’s headquarters to Plano for three reasons. We’re in good company with other HQ’s in the Legacy area; it was a boost to our corporate image. The City of Plano offered us very attractive incentives. And Legacy is great for our culture – most of our associates live in the general area, there are lots of places for associates to eat and have fun, and nice hotels for our out-of-town guests. Plus, we’re a half-hour from DFW airport, which makes travel for us – and for those coming to pay us a visit – a breeze. I could not ask for a better location. Life and work do not get better than what we’ve found in Plano.”
