Thomson Reuters Expands St. Louis, Missouri, Operations Center

03/03/2016
Thomson Reuters, a major multinational business information and media firm, will expand its presence at its Creve Coeur campus in St. Louis, Missouri. The campus is currently home to a staff of approximately 600.

“As a Regional Hub, the move makes sense because it co-locates a critical piece of the network support operations here in St Louis, and will be located alongside other operational and service support teams that manage the company’s strategic desktop and Real-Time infrastructure,” said Paul Bland, Global Head of Business Operations, Thomson Reuters.

The company plans to relocate 17 jobs from Buenos Aires as well as create three new Technical Support Engineer positions, which will help sustain expanding operations across the Thomson Reuters St. Louis hub. Expected to be filled within the next few months, the new St. Louis positions will include a manager, team leads, and several network engineers whose purpose is to support Thomson Reuters WAN networks: MPLS backbone, Internet access, last mile distribution to customers and diverse Core and Edge networks.

“Thomson Reuters’ decision to expand their Creve Coeur operations highlights St. Louis' reputation as a growing center for tech jobs and innovation,” said Joe Reagan, President/CEO of the St. Louis Regional Chamber. “The company is confident that our region’s tech workforce will perform to levels consistent with Thomson Reuters’ highly respected global brand.”

“Missouri continues to be a top destination for global companies that depend on a highly-educated workforce to help their organizations succeed and grow,” Governor Jay Nixon said. “This is great news for the St. Louis region and for Missouri, and a testament to our strong partnership with this global company.”

“These are new jobs relocating to our county from South America,” said St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger. “I was happy to be part of the team that convinced Thomson Reuters to expand in St. Louis County. Company leaders told us that our global connectivity, especially our efforts to attract more foreign-born residents through the Mosaic Project, played a big role in their decision.”
