Recently, Florida’s Governor Rick Scott announced that Gartner, Inc., a global information technology research and advisory company, will expand in Lee County and create 600 new jobs. We will also invest more than $21 million in the local community. Gartner currently employs more than 1,250 Floridians. The new jobs will include positions in sales, client service, research, finance, and more.
Governor Scott said, “I am proud to announce today that Gartner will be expanding in Lee County to create 600 new jobs. Thanks to the hard work of Enterprise Florida and local economic development agencies, hundreds of Floridians in Southwest Florida will have the opportunities they need to find great jobs and provide for their families. This incredible news shows how important it is to continue to make Florida more competitive for job creation wins, and we will continue to fight to make sure our state has all the resources we need to become the job creation capital of the world.”
