Esurance, the nation’s largest publicly-held personal lines insurer, will open a new sales and claims office in the City of Mauldin, South Carolina
. The $2.1 million investment is expected to create up to 450 jobs in Greenville County.
The office will be the fifth Esurance sales office in the country, joining Esurance sales locations in Sacramento, Sioux Falls, Tampa and Phoenix, and will open in the summer of 2014. This will be Esurance’s first major presence in the Palmetto State.
“Esurance’s decision to locate here is a direct result of several key factors including having national caliber talent here to draw from, an attractive and diverse community to draw outside talent to, and the presence of superb Class A office space appropriate for the organization’s needs at the ready,” said Dr. Bob Taylor, Board Member of the Greenville Area Development Corporation and Chairman of Greenville County Council. “We celebrate their addition as the newest member of Greenville County’s growing business community.”
“Esurance has chosen to come across the country to South Carolina for one reason: our people. South Carolina routinely delivers quality customer service, and we are ecstatic that a company like Esurance has taken notice. We applaud their decision to invest $2.1 million and create 450 new jobs,” said South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley
“To watch as our state has accumulated more than $1.1 billion in capital investment and 10,600 jobs in the service industry since 2011 is the truest testament to our southern hospitality. We welcome Esurance to South Carolina with open arms and we appreciate their commitment to invest in our state,” noted Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
