Analytics company to open Wake County center, create 400 jobs
Posted June 3, 2013
Founded in 2000, the company employs more than 2,600 people in locations around the world and works with firms to offer “knowledge process outsourcing," according to its website. Evalueserve plans to open a U.S. Center of Excellence in Wake County that would focus on financial services research.
“Evalueserve has found a perfect fit for its Center of Excellence right here in North Carolina,” Gov. Pat McCrory said in a statement. “The research and analytics jobs that they’ll create will strengthen our hi-tech hub and be an example to others of the strong talent pool and attractive quality of life that characterizes Wake County, the Research Triangle and the state.”
Salaries will vary, with the average annual payroll for the new jobs at nearly $24 million.
“Building our presence in the U.S. is integral to our growth strategy, especially as we strive to forge deeper and more strategic relationships with our clients,” Marc Vollenweider, Evalueserve’s chief executive officer, said in a statement. “We are extremely pleased to begin our partnership with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and to partner with them on this critical initiative.”
The company received incentives in the form of a Job Development Investment Grant from the state. Under the terms of the JDIG, the company can receive 10 grants equal to 35 percent of the state withholding taxes on new jobs.
The company could earn up to $2.9 million under the JDIG over 10 years, officials said.
