Insurance behemoth American International Group will set up a new technology center in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, creating 230 jobs and investing $5.5 million in the process. The center will provide application development and management services, including the design, development, testing and deployment of software supporting different aspects of AIG’s global insurance business.
AIG expects to launch the operation in 2014 and be fully staffed by 2017. If the company hits hiring and other projections, it could receive incentives worth up to $4.9 million over 10 years through North Carolina’s Job Development Investment Grant program.
“We are looking forward to growing our capabilities in Charlotte,” said Robert Dickie, AIG’s chief operations and systems officer, in a statement. “The combination of a highly skilled workforce and a focus on economic growth in North Carolina supports our goals of developing world-class IT products and services to support our business and our customers.”
