A California-based global payments business will open a new operations center in Omaha, which will lead to the creation of 300 jobs. i2c's operations center will be the company's second in North America, after it opened a similar center in Montreal in 2016. Over four years, the company said it will invest $30 million in Omaha.
“We have a robust growth trajectory, and our new operations center in Omaha will support our growing business,” said Amir Wain, i2c’s founder and CEO. “Our customers’ success is our number one priority, and this expansion underscores our commitment as we continue on our path to $1 billion in revenue.”
The location for the operation center has not been finalized. The company helps financial institutions, corporations and government agencies with credit, debit, prepaid and other payments through a cloud-based computer system.
They will be creating over 300 new positions within the Omaha operation center’s first year, with plans to add more in ensuing years. The Omaha operations center represents a $30 million financial commitment over 4 years. The company will begin posting job openings for account management, operations and client services within days.
“This mutually-beneficial investment by i2c stands to strengthen Nebraska’s reputation as a Silicon Prairie hub for the financial technology sector,” says Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts.
Peg Johnson, i2c’s EVP of Global Client success, will oversee management of the new center. “Our investment in Omaha and the new operations center will enable us to scale all parts of our business in an ideal geographical location with a concentrated, highly-qualified financial services talent pool.”
