"TeleTech is a global leader in the industry of customer experience, and we're thrilled to see this type of growth and investment in the Commonwealth," Gov. Beshear said. "Hundreds of jobs mean hundreds of incomes for families, and that is outstanding news for Hopkinsville, which will reap the benefits for years to come."
"For 30 years, TeleTech has been in the value creation business and the way we create value for our clients is through the design and delivery of exceptional customer experiences across all interaction channels," said Ken Tuchman, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of TeleTech. "We are thrilled to have found great talent in Hopkinsville and we look forward to becoming an integral part of the community."
Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp says TeleTech had been considering Christian County as a possible location for several years. "The company explored several states and numerous communities before selecting Christian County. We are proud that the quality of our labor force was the deciding factor", Kemp said.
Operations at the new facility are expected to begin later this year.
