International Law Firm Moving Administrative Operations to Kansas City
San Francisco-based Sedgwick LLP has selected Kansas City, Mo., for the firm’s shared services center, creating 100 information technology, human resources, marketing and financial services jobs. The firm is evaluating multiple office properties in downtown Kansas City.
“We are very excited to consolidate our global administrative operations and open a Shared Service Center in Kansas City, Missouri,” says Michael Tanenbaum, chair of Sedgwick LLP. “Being located in the heart of the country, Kansas City offers us a unique opportunity to tap into a diverse and talented workforce in a vibrant and pro-business environment, thus allowing Sedgwick to better meet the evolving needs of our clients and our 13 domestic and two international offices. For Sedgwick, Kansas City is an excellent fit.”
Sedgwick evaluated multiple cities for the location of its shared services center, including Raleigh, N.C., and Indianapolis. The Kansas City area was chosen for its urban setting, operating costs, talent availability and quality as well as its central location.
“The Kansas City area is getting major buzz on the coasts as a great metropolitan community where companies like Sedgwick can hire and attract talented people,” says Bob Marcusse, president and CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council. “I am so proud of our regional KC team for putting together a compelling solution that fit Sedgwick’s unique needs.”
