Software Technology Company Coming to Downtown


CAEK, Inc., a software company that offers regulatory compliance and information security for the medical industry, plans to hire up to 150 new employees in its new downtown Reno location.

“During our search for a new location, Reno was the most supportive and genuinely generous community we encountered,” said Katie Lay, vice president of sales and business development for CAEK, Inc. “We intentionally chose a location in the heart of downtown so we can be at the center of the community.”

Lay founded the company along with chief executive officer Anna Green. The company’s new office is at 100 N. Arlington Ave. It is relocating from Fayetteville, Ark.

Mike Kazmierski, the president and chief executive officer of the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN), said the decision by CAEK, Inc. marks a step toward strengthening and diversifying the area’s economy.

“Smart software companies such as CAEK, Inc. provide exciting opportunities for highly skilled professionals in an important and growing sector of the global economy,” Kazmierski said. “When these jobs are created by a community-minded company such as CAEK, Inc., the benefits are multiplied many times over.”

Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve welcomed the company to Reno as an inspiration to females.

“We want to ensure that girls in Northern Nevada fully develop their talents — particularly in science, technology, math and engineering,” Schieve said. “When students see female-founded CAEK, Inc., a real-life success story in downtown Reno, they will receive powerful motivation to pursue their own dreams.”
