HAMPTON -- Nearly 600 new jobs will be coming to Fort Monroe in Hampton.
On Wednesday, Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced that Liberty-Source PBC will hire 596 workers for a new $1.56 million operation.
Liberty-Source PBC is a "flexible onshore business process outsourcing model that uniquely harnesses the talent of military spouses", according to a release from the governor's office. The company hires military spouses to perform job duties ranging from accounting to human resources to customer care.
“An operation at a former U.S. Army post is a perfect fit for Liberty-Source PBC’s business model. The
company will add economic vitality to a location with a centuries-old military tradition while
drawing on the prevalent talents of the strong workforce in the region," said Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones.
Liberty-Source PBC is a for-profit public benefit corporation.
“With over 30,000 active military from all 5 branches in the greater Hampton Roads area, Fort Monroe provides us access to a highly skilled and dedicated workforce,” said president and CEO Steve Hosley.
The company will be helped by a $300,000 grant from the Governor's Opportunity Fund.
