Information and Technology Company Relocating to Texas, Adding 10,000 Jobs
A major information and technology company is relocating its U.S. operations hub from New Jersey to Texas and expects to add 10,000 jobs nationwide over the next three years.
Cognizant is headquartered in Teaneck, New Jersey. But President Gordon Coburn said Monday the company is relocating to thecollege town of College Station in part to draw potential employees from Texas A&M University.
Appearing at an event with Gov. Rick Perry, Coburn praised Texas’business climate and said 750 of the positions — or perhaps more — would be created in the state alone by around 2016.
