A high-tech firm that provides IT Infrastructure Management Services to the financial services, retail, healthcare and education industries, dbaDIRECT, will establish its new 22,200 square foot office at the Corporex Companies RiverCenter office complex in Covington, Kentucky
. The move includes relocating the company’s 73 existing employees with plans to add approximately 110 new high-tech jobs by 2016.
The firm’s services include general infrastructure monitoring, database management consulting and performance enhancement services for corporate data environments.
“Our company stands at the precipice of enhanced growth in the data management industry and the Commonwealth of Kentucky and Northern Kentucky has been a partner and supporter of dbaDIRECT since its inception in 1998,” said John Bostick, President and CEO of dbaDIRECT. “We are looking to grow and add to the appeal of Northern Kentucky as an informatics hub. We are excited to be in Covington’s urban core with other high-tech companies at RiverCenter and we value our strengthening relationships with Northern Kentucky University’s College of Informatics.”
“dbaDIRECT represents the growing technology segment of the Commonwealth’s economy,” said Gov. Steve Beshear. “With plans to add up to 110 high-tech jobs in the coming years, this is a great opportunity in Northern Kentucky, where companies have access to an outstanding workforce, strategic location and an ideal business climate.”
“We congratulate dbaDIRECT on its success and growth from its start in the Northern Kentucky ezone,” said Gary Moore, former Chairman, Northern Kentucky Tri-ED Board of Directors. “The informatics sector is a target industry as we continue to market Northern Kentucky on a national and global scale. This company’s success is a testimony to its continued persistence in an extremely competitive global economy and Northern Kentucky’s positive business environment.”
