MetLife Inc., a life insurance and employee benefits company, intends to create 2,600 jobs in Charlotte and Cary, N.C., by the end of 2015. The company expects to invest, or cause to be invested, $125.5 million into its new Mecklenburg and Wake County campuses. MetLife plans to establish hubs for its U.S. Retail Business in Charlotte and for its Global Technology & Operations organization in Cary.
New positions would include product management, marketing, sales and customer support in Charlotte, and information technology positions in Cary, focused on delivering solutions to support the company and the customers it serves, says MetLife.
MetLife adds that the project was made possible, in part, by an award from the state Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) program and a One North Carolina Fund Award. Receipt of the awards is based on proof of job creation and other performance requirements. JDIGs are awarded only to new and expanding businesses whose benefits exceed the costs to the state and would not be undertaken in North Carolina without the grant.
