RIO RANCHO — Gov. Susana Martinez, Rio Rancho city officials, New Mexico Economic Development Cabinet Secretary Jon Barela and leaders of the Sandoval Economic Alliance and Albuquerque Economic Development announced Wednesday that S&P Data plans to open a new call center in the city, creating up to 425 new jobs in the next few years.
The Ohio- and Canada-based call center company, with clients that include Apple, American Express and McDonalds, said it will pay on average about $38,000 a year plus benefits and bonuses.
S&P also said it plans to lease up to 50,000 square feet of the partially vacant Hewlett Packard Customer Care Center in Rio Rancho. HP has been downsizing in the past year freeing space the tech company originally planned to use.
The company said it plans to hire 100 the first year and up to 425 over the next few years. It plans to start interviewing for the new jobs on Oct. 1.
Rio Rancho City Councilor Chuck Wilkins said the company coming to Rio Rancho is S & P Data, with headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio and Toronto, Canada, which provides customer support for Fortune 500 customers such as American Express, Apple and McDonalds, according to its website http://www.spdatallc.com
