Cork-headquartered global business outsourcing firm Voxpro has continued its rapid global expansion with the announcement of 500 new jobs in the United States, writes Peter O’Dwyer, Irish Examiner Business Reporter.
The company is to invest $4m (€3.57m) in a new centre of excellence in Athens, Georgia which will employ 500 staff by 2020.
The new centre of excellence comes hot on the heels of 450 additional roles at its Folsom base in California, which were announced in March.
Voxpro chief executive and co-founder Dan Kiely lauded North America as an important aspect of its expansion plans.
“North America is a critical part of our global expansion and we are excited to be a leading Irish company bringing jobs to the US. We’ve had a great welcome from the local community, and we’re delighted to be partnering with Governor Nathan Deal and the Georgia Department of Economic Development on our latest expansion as we continue to scale internationally.
“Voxpro partners with clients that are changing the world. Our success is built on delivering beautiful customer experience (BCX) and it’s our people and our culture that provide that point of difference,” Mr Kiely said.
Established20 years ago by co-founders, Dan and Linda Kiely, Voxpro operates successfully from three purpose built facilities in Cork, together with centres of excellence in Dublin and Folsom, California.
The company employs more than 1,700 people worldwide and works with customers in over 32 countries internationally.
Voxpro’s clients include some of the largest names in technology, including Google, Airbnb and Nest.
The announcement was also welcomed by Georgia Governor who said the State “offers a wealth of resources for an innovative company like Voxpro to grow its business.
“Georgia’s top-ranked business climate and highly skilled workforce is critical to attracting international business. We established a strong relationship with Voxpro leadership in Ireland and look forward to the company’s continued investment in Georgia.”
