InComm will add 275 jobs in Atlanta
ATLANTA — InComm, a payment and transaction technology company, will create 275 jobs and invest $20 million in the metro Atlanta.
InComm makes and operates gift card programs for major retailers and brands. It also operates prepaid wireless programs and reloadable debit cards. The company has more than 1,800 workers worldwide and does work for more than 500 brands.
Most of the new jobs will be in IT in the company’s existing offices in downtown Atlanta and Alpharetta. About 100 new positions will work out of the call center in Peachtree Corners. InComm will also open a new data center in Suwanee.
Seventy percent of all U.S. financial transactions are processed through Georgia, according to a news release from the Georgia Department of Economic Development. Georgia-based financial technology corporations process more than 85 billion transactions annually and employ nearly 40,000 workers in the metro Atlanta area.
“Our city has emerged as a major hub for the financial technology industry and as a center of innovation because of our world-class colleges and universities, our strong pool of local talent, and our support of startups and entrepreneurs,” said City of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. “InComm has taken advantage of these resources to build its business and become the industry leader it is today. InComm is part of the Atlanta community, and we look forward to growing and prospering together.”
Mary Ellen McClanahan represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development on the project and worked with Invest Atlanta, the metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and Georgia Power. The Georgia Department of Labor will assist InComm throughout the hiring phase of the expansion.
“We congratulate InComm on its significant growth and are thrilled that the company has chosen metro Atlanta for its expanded operations. InComm’s decision to invest in our region and create jobs is another example of Atlanta’s strength as a leading fintech hub,” said Hala Moddelmog, president and CEO of the metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce.
