NEVADA CONTINUES TO SEE JOB CREATION AND CAPITAL INVESTMENT
LAS VEGAS, N.V. (September 19, 2013) – Today, nearly 1,400 jobs and $24 million in capital investment will come to the State of Nevada following a Board meeting for the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED). Additionally, the State of Nevada will potentially welcome Barclays Services, a division of Barclays Bank, and Kareo, Inc., an IT company named as one of the Most Promising Companies in the country by Forbes, to the state. Barclays and Kareo were approved for Catalyst Funds as they intend to create most of those high-paying jobs in the next few years.
“The State of Nevada works to provide an environment that assists businesses to create jobs and grow the economy,” Governor Brian Sandoval said. “Nevada’s business-friendly atmosphere is not only helping existing Nevada companies to expand, but also bringing industry-leading companies to our state. Our economic development plan continues to bear fruit.”
“The businesses before the Board today cited many reasons why Nevada is competitive for business, from location to tax structure to quality of life,” GOED Director Steve Hill said. “Each Board meeting highlights the regional cohesiveness that it takes to create jobs in Nevada, and while progress has been made, there is more that remains to be done to help businesses put Nevadans back to work.”
