BC, Vilnius, 15.09.2020.Print version
US medical technology company Dexcom is set to open a global business services (GBS) center in Vilnius next year, Invest Lithuania said.

The Vilnius office will support Dexcom's operations and its customers across the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, the government's foreign investment promotion agency said in a press release.

"The new branch is set to be multifaceted and will focus on customer and technical support related to Dexcom products and on providing finance and accounting support for the organization, including accounts receivable, accounts payable, payroll, billing and more," it said.


Quentin Blackford, Dexcom's executive vice president, chief operating officer and chief financial officer, says the company chose Vilnius because of its talent pool and multilingualism. 


"Vilnius proved to be an exceptionally attractive location in terms of available qualified talent," Blackford was quoted as saying in the press release. 


"The multilingualism of the local talent pool was one of the strongest selling points for us, as fluency and language competencies are crucial in serving our customers from all around the world". 


Founded in 1999, the San Diego-based company "empowers people to take control of their diabetes through innovative continuous glucose monitoring system," according to the press release.  


Last year, Dexcom employed 3,900 specialists worldwide. The company's revenue for 2019 totaled 1.47 bn US dollars.
