(Denver) – State Rep. Dave Young hailed the announcement today that Colorado-based TeleTech is opening a service center in Greeley, bringing more that 500 new jobs to the area.
Rep. Young joined Gov. John Hickenlooper, TeleTech CEO Ken Tuchman and Greeley Mayor Tom Norton today to at a press conference in Greeley to formally announce the move.
Training classes have already begun at the 50,000-square-foot Greeley site, and TeleTech says it will be fully operational in March.
“This is great news for my district, and I thank TeleTech and Ken Tuchman for coming here,” Rep. Young said. “I hope TeleTech’s presence will encourage other companies to expand or relocate here. Greeley needs even more jobs, and I’ll be doing all I can at the Capitol to spur job creation and business development in my district.”
The company is hiring human resource personnel, facilities managers, desktop support technicians, business analysts, service delivery managers and customer service representatives, and is hosting a job fair next Tuesday, Jan. 24, and Wednesday, Jan. 25, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Aims Corporate Education Center, 5590 West 11thStreet.
TeleTech, based in Englewood, is one of the largest global providers of customer experience management and business process solutions. It has 44,000 employees worldwide.
“Colorado’s collaborative approach to supporting business growth is paying off,” Gov. Hickenlooper said in a statement released by his office. Citing recent business expansions in Colorado Springs, Johnstown and Windsor, he said, “We’ve now seen four companies along the Front Range expand and create more than 1,500 jobs in just the past 60 days.”
