"Verizon Wireless is a growing company in an exciting industry, and we are expanding here in the Chicago area," said Brian Pascoe, president of the Illinois/Wisconsin Region for Verizon Wireless. "We are committed to offering resources to all our employees that help them enjoy work and grow their careers without sacrificing the things that are most important to their families."
