Citrix to eliminate 1,000 jobs as part of restructuring plan

RALEIGH (WNCN) – Florida-based Citrix announced a restructuring plan Tuesday that will result in the elimination of 1,000 jobs.

The jobs include both full-time and contract positions.

“We are simplifying our business in all areas – product, marketing, sales, operations and development,” said Bob Calderoni, interim CEO and president, and executive chairman. “Focusing on our core strengths and simplifying how we work with customers and partners will help us improve execution, drive higher profit and begin investing for growth in areas in which we provide the greatest customer value.”

There is no word on how many Raleigh jobs will be affected.
