Why 13,000 insurance industry jobs are headed to North Texas?
Any way you slice it, 13,000 jobs is substantial. That’s how many combined insurance industry positions are being created in Plano and Richardson by Boston-based Liberty Mutual and Illinois-based State Farm. Both companies are in the process of moving major operations into North Texas.
In this week’s cover story, I focused on Liberty Mutual’s plan to bring 5,000 jobs to Plano, and on the company’s existing presence in the Lone Star state.
So, why are big companies like State Farm and Liberty Mutual choosing North Texas?
