Liberty-Source PBC to create 596 jobs at Fort Monroe
- July 16, 2014
Liberty-Source PBC said Wednesday it plans to invest $1.56 million to establish a customer service operation at Fort Monroe in Hampton that’s expected to create 596 jobs.
In a statement, Gov. Terry McAuliffe called Liberty-Source “a tremendous” addition to Hampton Roads.
“The company’s delivery model is centered on employing staff from the U.S. military community, and Fort Monroe and the City of Hampton have a long and storied military history,” McAuliffe said.
Liberty-Source will provide finance, accounting, human resources, customer care and other support services.
Liberty-Source offers large multinational companies an onshore alternative to a traditional offshore business process outsourcing (BPO) model.
“Virginia is the ideal location to headquarter a BPO operation,” Steve Hosley, president and CEO of Liberty-Source said in a statement. “With over 30,000 active military from all 5 branches in the greater Hampton Roads area, Fort Monroe provides us access to a highly skilled and dedicated workforce.”
McAuliffe approved a $300,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to assist Hampton with the project.
