Gov. McAuliffe announces 189 new jobs coming to Hampton

HAMPTON, Va. (WVEC) -- Governor Terry McAuliffe announced Monday that 189 new jobs are coming to the city of Hampton.

Maximus,  a contractor of program management and administrative services for government agencies, will invest $1.87 million to establish a customer support center in the city. Officials say the new operation will support state and federal contracts across the country.

“When a Virginia-headquartered company like Maximus chooses to again invest in the Commonwealth for its next operation, it is a tremendous testament to our unparalleled business advantages,” said McAuliffe. “We are proud to welcome Maximus to the City of Hampton and Hampton Roads, which boasts a strong workforce, infrastructure and business climate. Diversifying our industries is critical, and Maximus is a valued corporate partner contributing to our ongoing success in building a new Virginia economy.”

Maximus has a workforce of over 16,000 and is headquartered in Reston, Va.; with another office in Falls Church. Other sites are located in Canada, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and Australia.

“Hampton’s workforce is a perfect match for Maximus,” said Mayor Donnie Tuck. “We have military spouses and those who transition from the service every year. They have a dedicated work ethic and a strong desire to serve a company that is passionate about its mission to provide services.”

Virginia successfully competed against Pennsylvania and Texas for the project.
