Las Cruces, N.M. – Governor Susana Martinez announced that Sitel, a global customer care provider, will add more than 100 jobs at its Las Cruces facility.
The company has operated in Las Cruces since 2007. It is expanding in part due to support provided through New Mexico’s Job Training Incentive Program.
“It is important to have a strong and diverse private sector and that is why we continue to foster an environment that encourages job creators, like Sitel, to hire and train new workers in New Mexico,” Governor Martinez said.
The announcement came a few weeks after the U.S Department of Commerce ranked three New Mexico cities among the top five U.S. metro areas for export growth which included Las Cruces.
Sitel has has 110 centers in 23 countries across North and South America, Europe, Africa and the Asia Pacific.
“Programs like JTIP play a vital role in helping us level the playing field and make New Mexico more competitive. That’s why we’ve fought so hard to make the program permanent and continue to support the program with funding that encourages companies to hire more New Mexicans,” said Governor Martinez.
