HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – A company is making a big local investment that Governor Terry McAuliffe says will bring almost 600 jobs to Hampton.
Liberty-Source PBC plans to invest $1.56 million to set up an operation at Fort Monroe. According to McAuliffe’s office, the company will provide finance, accounting, human resources, customer care and additional support services for its clients.
“Liberty-Source PBC is a tremendous addition to the Hampton Roads region,” the Governor said in a statement. “The company’s delivery model is centered on employing staff from the U.S. military community, and Fort Monroe and the city of Hampton have a long and storied military history. In addition to active duty men and women in Virginia, thousands exit the military each year in the Commonwealth, and Liberty-Source will make a great social and economic impact providing opportunities to valuable government assets.”
In all, 596 jobs will be created. The governor says the company “harnesses the talent of military spouses.”
A Liberty-Source spokesperson said the company is now recruiting for near-term/immediate positions. Click here to learn more about current job openings.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the city of Hampton, the Fort Monroe Authority, and the Hampton Roads Economic Development Alliance to secure the project for Virginia.
Governor McAuliffe also approved a $300,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to assist Hampton with the project. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
