This week, we saw another example of how we're turning things around in Wisconsin and why we’re headed in the right direction. I was proud to announce that Connecture, Inc. a software company currently based in Atlanta Georgia, is moving its headquarters to Wisconsin. One hundred high-paying professional technology jobs will result from this move over the next three years.
Information about the open positions and recruiting open houses can be found at www.conjecture.com/jobs or by calling 262-522-4815.
Adding Connecture to the state's economy will build off of our hub of medical technology development and innovation. Wisconsin has many great assets to offer employers from other states: dedicated and hardworking employees, a state government that supports private sector growth, a great infrastructure network - just to name a few.
This is just one of the many good stories taking place in Wisconsin. We are working tirelessly to recruit and retain employers who can provide our people with good-paying, family sustaining jobs.
Moving forward, I will continue to advance pro-growth policies that help employers create jobs. I am optimistic that we will be able to attract more jobs by encouraging other businesses to relocate in our great state.
Employers who relocate to Wisconsin not only help those who directly obtain a job with the company, but also serve as a supply chain for other businesses and ultimately result in increased economic activity for area communities.
Working together, we can get our state working again. We can move Wisconsin forward.
