NASHVILLE—Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd along with UBS officials announced today the company will expand its current operations in Middle Tennessee by opening a new office in Williamson County at One Franklin Park. UBS will invest $11.2 million to outfit the space, which will accommodate the growth of the UBS Business Solution Center, as well as, a satellite branch office for Wealth Management Americas financial advisors, creating over 350 new jobs over the next several years.
“We want to thank UBS for this investment and for creating these new jobs in Middle Tennessee,” Haslam said. “When a globally recognized brand like UBS decides to invest here and then continues to expand, it strengthens Tennessee's brand and our ability to compete in the global marketplace. That’s exciting news for Tennessee and is another step forward in our effort to become the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
“Since opening their Business Solution Center in downtown Nashville, UBS continues to make a significant impact in this region,” Boyd said. “We are working to become the most aligned state in the nation when it comes to workforce and education, creating a pipeline of Tennesseans who have the right qualifications and training so companies like UBS can find the employees they need for ongoing success. I appreciate the partnership with Pat Emery and Spectrum Properties who were key to making this expansion possible.”
