Financial consulting company Deloitte will open a U.S. Delivery Center in Gilbert, Arizona. The new 102,000 square foot facility is expecting to generate approximately 2,500 jobs in the region and will focus on developing and applying emerging technologies-based solutions to its clients.
To better adapt itself to the perpetually changing landscapes of consumer business demands, the center aims to “provide capabilities for cloud, Salesforce, robotic and cognitive automation, blockchain, SAP, Workday and more,” according to their press release.
The delivery center opening in Arizona will serve state government clients in the west region and commercial clients in industries including health care and financial services, according to Deloitte.
Arizona is continuing to attract established and emerging technology companies; in the last five years alone the City of Phoenix has seen a growth of over 300 percent in high-tech companies. Gov. Doug Ducey said he is “looking forward” to add Deloitte to the growing list.
Deloitte will first open a temporary location this summer and move to its permanent location at Rivulon this winter.
Deloitte provides the brands they serve with financial consultation services, merger & acquisition solutions, audits, business and employer tax services, and risk advisory for both public and private sectors worldwide.
Chairwoman and CEO of Deloitte Janet Foutty said:
Businesses today need to anticipate and respond more quickly to the rapid pace of change in today’s market due in large part to tech disruption. Our newest Delivery Center located in the Phoenix metro area demonstrates our commitment to providing our clients with the capabilities to navigate and leverage emerging technology to drive business results.
