JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Gov. Rick Scott was on the First Coast on Monday to announce that Deutsche Bank locally will be adding 300 more jobs and $10 million in capital over the next three years.
"Deutsche Bank has become an important partner to the local community and we thank them for continuing to create jobs for Florida families," Scott said. "This expansion will create 300 new jobs for Florida families and demonstrates that our efforts to improve Florida's economy and create jobs are working."
When the financial institution initially created a base in the area in 2008, it started out with 100 people and now has 1,100 employees in Jacksonville. The jobs will be added to Deutsche Bank's investment banking division.
"Deutsche Bank has consistently shown an incredible return on investment for Jacksonville," said Mayor Alvin Brown. "More than jobs, these are career-building opportunities that speak to our economic momentum and quality of life. Expanding investment banking in Jacksonville represents a powerful step toward economic recovery and I applaud city and state leaders along with Deutsche Bank for great teamwork."
