2012: A good year for Pleasanton business with 2013 looking even better

The good news for Pleasanton as we wrap up 2012 is that there's likely to be more of the same in the year ahead. Workday, a software company headed by Dave Duffield, has made the decision to stay in Pleasanton despite heavy courting by San Ramon business and political leaders, buying instead the cluster of five office buildings comprising Stoneridge Corporate Plaza on Stoneridge Mall Road. Workday, which Duffield founded after selling PeopleSoft (which he also started) to Oracle, has run out of room for its rapidly expanding workforce.
