Infosys to Add 200 Jobs in Cobb
The information technology consulting firm already employs 350 people in the East Cobb area.
An Indian global corporation that specializes in information technology consulting is expanding its work force in Cobb County.
Infosys, based in Bangalore India, employs between 60-100 people at the Wildwood corporate complex. According to The Marietta Daily Journal, Infosys also employs 250 more people on Powers Ferry Road after purchasing McCamish Systems in 2009.
The new jobs will "support the Infosys Business Process Outsourcing subsidiary" and will be added in the Cumberland Mall area, according to a report on GPB.com.
WSB-TV quoted Infosys vice president Sandeep Dadlani as saying that future expansion is possible beyond those new jobs, and that metro Atlanta is an important hub in the company's growth plans: "We're committed to increasing our presence here."
Global Atlanta reported that Infosys will be working with Atlanta-universities and technical colleges to recruit and train talent for the new jobs.
Infosys has 19 other offices in the United States and nearly 70 other locations around the world.
Here's the official release from Infosys, which quotes Cobb Chamber economic development vice president Brooks Mathis:
"Cobb County is excited to see one of its global companies expanding. Infosys is an important asset and corporate partner in our community for many reasons."
