06/19/2018
GEICO, the second-largest private passenger auto insurer, is investing nearly $10 million to open a 55,000-sq.-ft. operations center in the Kansas City Metro city of Lenexa, Kansas. The new operation will create 500 new jobs over the next five years starting with sales and customer service professionals for its GEICO Insurance Agency.

“All of us at GEICO are thrilled to make the Kansas City area the home of our newest office,” said GEICO Chairman Tony Nicely. “We are looking forward to being part of this vibrant community and adding talented people to the GEICO team.”

According to Kansas City Area Development Council. GEICO evaluated multiple locations across the U.S. for this operation, choosing to invest almost $10 million at 11214 Renner Road, with plans for the location to be operational in August 2018.

“Kansas’ business-friendly climate continues to attract innovative, pioneering companies like GEICO,” said Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D. “We appreciate GEICO for recognizing Kansas as a state where financial services firms can be very successful, and welcome GEICO’s decision to choose Kansas as the location for this new support facility. We are looking forward to future growth of this partnership.”

“GEICO is investing in the KC region at the perfect time,” said Tim Cowden, President & CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council. “GEICO joins a business community that is committed to accelerating job growth and economic prosperity in Kansas City, and our region is competing more aggressively than ever for high profile corporate investment, well-paying and highly-skilled jobs, and top global talent.”

KCADC was proud to work with a number of regional partners in attracting GEICO to the region: State of Kansas, Kansas Department of Commerce, Lenexa Chamber of Commerce and EDC, City of Lenexa, KCP&L, Johnson County Community College, University of Kansas – Edwards Campus, Kansas State University, CBRE, JLL, JE Dunn Construction, the University of Kansas Health System and the Kansas City Veteran Coalition.
