According to Columbus 2020, Dallas-based Improving’s $170,000 investment in Columbus will cover building costs, IT costs, and training. The company is a complete IT services firm committed to remaining tech-flexible, while still providing the highest degree of expertise to its clients.

“We are excited to continue to grow our company’s presence in Columbus,” says Mark Kovacevich, President of Improving. “We will continue to take advantage of the low operating costs, the availability of talented tech workers and the city’s strategic location to do so.”

“Improving’s expansion in Columbus is a testament to our robust IT sector,” says Columbus City Mayor Andrew J. Ginther. “We are thrilled to be able to meet the staffing needs of a company as well-regarded as Improving, and we look forward to helping them grow here.”
