Milestone Technologies held a ribbon cutting for their new Client Contact Center in Chico this morning. The center is slated to open next week.
The company has already hired 230 people for the center, with plans to add 110 more.
City, county, and Chico State representatives were on hand.
CEO and President Prem Chand used a light-hearted football metaphor to describe what's happened in the last month at Milestone.
“The ball is hiked, you go back, you toss it into the end zone, and you're just wondering what's going to happen. And it's caught. And that's what this is, a well-executed Hail Mary,” Chand said.
With 340 new jobs, Milestone is now the fourth largest private employer in Chico.
