More than 1,000 high-tech employees are expected to be hired over the next five years to work for a new General Motors Information Technology Innovation in Chandler.
Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny with Gov. Jan Brewer and other state officials say GM will invest $21 million in the new Chandler facility, the fourth to enable GM to “in-source the company’s innovation capabilities, strengthening its global competitiveness.” GM’s IT Innovation Centers are part of a companywide transformation to improve performance, reduce the cost of on-going operations and increase its delivery of innovation, according to a news release.
“This is exactly the type of technology employer we need in Chandler and in our state,” says Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny. “The GM Innovation Center is a perfect complement to Chandler’s Price Corridor, and furthers the City’s reputation as a regional hub for innovation and high-tech businesses.”
GM will begin recruiting and hiring software developers, database administrators and system analysts immediately. The new Innovation Center is expected to be operational by first quarter 2014.
