Thursday, Gov. Rick Scott announced that Comcast is expanding its customer service "Center of Excellence" in Fort Myers, and plans to hire 200 new customer service agents and 20 leadership positions by the end of the year. This growth will expand the customer-dedicated "Center of Excellence" and Call Center facility to more than 400 employees.
Comcast has already hired and trained 30 of the new Customer Account Executives (CAEs), with the remainder of the 200 employees expected to be in place by the end of this year, and continued growth is anticipated into 2015.
Scott said, "These 220 new jobs in Southwest Florida are another example of how our efforts to create an opportunity economy are working. Florida is continuing to add jobs, and this past year alone Comcast has added more than 1,800 jobs. Comcast Corporation has shown that investing in Florida is good for business, and recently announced Universal Orlando's addition of 3,500 new jobs in Florida. We must continue to create an environment where companies like Comcast can continue to succeed and where every Floridian who wants a job can get one."
