HomeServe USA, the nation's leading provider of emergency home repair programs, announced today it has grown its staff to 140 employees at the call center it opened last November in East Brainerd.
The Miami-based company, a subsidiary of the British-based HomeServe, will conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony at noon on Thursday at their facility in The Pointe Centre.
"When a HomeServe customer is in need of assistance, we want them to have the convenience and reassurance of being assisted by a representative based here in the United States," Jonathan King, chief executive for HomeServe, said in a statement. "We decided on Chattanooga because of the availability of high-quality employees combined with the robust telecommunications and data infrastructure available in the area."
