GE to add 200 jobs in Innsbrook

GE officials announced today that the company will open an information security technology center in Innsbrook that ultimately will employ about 200 people. Jobs are expected to focus on cyber security, network design, architecture, data management and application development.
 
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Henrico County and the Greater Richmond Partnership to secure the project for Virginia. U.S. Senator Mark Warner and Congressman Eric Cantor also assisted with the project. Through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program, the Virginia Department of Business Assistance (VDBA) will provide funding and services to support the company’s recruitment and training activities.

“GE’s decision to set up their new cyber security center here says much about Henrico’s quality labor force and our pro-business climate,” said Frank J. Thornton, Chairman of the Henrico County Board of Supervisors. “This project was a real team effort, and we appreciate the solid work on this project by the Greater Richmond Partnership and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership along with our higher education institutions and our local Economic Development Authority. We welcome General Electric to Henrico County.”

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell said the announcement was another testament to Virginia's business climate.

"In addition to the advantage of an available high-tech workforce, GE will benefit from a partnership with our world-class colleges and universities," McDonnell said. "The commonwealth’s outstanding institutions of higher education are committed to helping the company grow and succeed in the commonwealth, and look forward to collaborating on cybersecurity interests.”
 
“On behalf of the administration, which was involved throughout GE’s search process, we warmly welcome this global company to Henrico County,” said Jim Cheng, Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade. “GE is creating 200 new jobs that pay on average two times more than the prevailing wage for the region. This is truly a great win for Virginia and for the locality.”
