News : Nashville-based Asurion Plans to Add 800 Jobs
Oct. 16, 2013 -- Nashville-based Asurion, a cell phone insurance company, is adding 800 support technician positions to a new Nashville facility amid growing demand for mobile devices.
The company, led by CEO Steve Ellis, is opening a support solutions center at 5720 Crossings Blvd. in Antioch that will include management and operational positions, in addition to the tech support jobs. The new 122,000-square-foot facility is expected to open in early 2014.
Asurion’s expansion in the Hickory Hollow area comes as the area experiences a revitalization spurred by both private and public investment.
Mayor Karl Dean's office offered Asurion an incentive grant in 2011 to expand its headquarters and call center by 600 jobs and to keep it from moving to another county. In addition, Asurion received another grant from the state to reimburse the company for job training and equipment costs. The current partnership is not part of previous grants, according to Colombo.
