Genscape Inc. Opens Expanded Operations Center In Old Louisville, Kentucky
The firm’s CEO Matthew Burkley said the company enjoys Louisville and believes investing in the city’s past means a more vibrant future. The company plans to roughly double its Louisville employee count to about 180 in the coming few years.
“We have seen our growth accelerate over the recent years, and we were simply out of room. With the goal of identifying top talent and doubling local employment, we have designed and redeveloped the building to reflect our creative, entrepreneurial culture, in hopes of maintaining our reputation as the best workplace in Louisville,” Burkley said.
Genscape, part of DMG Information, a division of Britain’s Daily Mail and General Trust plc., partnered with the state on workforce training through the Kentucky Skills Network in 2007, 2009 and 2015. Through the Kentucky Skills Network, companies are eligible to receive no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job training incentives.
“It is exciting to see a locally grown company continue to expand and reinvest in the community,” said Governor Matt Bevin. “Seeing the value in a previously otherwise neglected property not only rejuvenates one of Kentucky’s most historic neighborhoods, but allows Genscape the opportunity to create jobs in the promising career field of data science right here in Old Louisville.”
“When we discuss quality of life in Louisville, we also mean quality of work life. Genscape recognizes all that our city offers – from parks to walking trails and a thriving downtown – and made a commitment to grow their headquarters locally,” Mayor Greg Fischer said. “Genscape’s investment in the Old Louisville neighborhood will bring the tech jobs we are working to attract and will make a great impact on the surrounding small businesses.”
