Computershare to bring 250 jobs to Louisville
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — An Australian financial services company says it will open a facility in Jefferson County that will create 250 jobs.
The announcement from Computershare comes two days after the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved up to $2.5 million in state and local tax incentives for the company.
Gov. Steve Beshear and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer announced the decision in a news release on Wednesday. They said the jobs will include management, human resources, recruiting and call center positions.
Computershare plans to invest $12 million in its new facility. Founded in 1978, the company has 14,000 employees around the world, including 4,000 in the United States. The company says it plans to pay an average of $20 per hour, including benefits.
