A new deal between Northwestern Mutual and a New Jersey-based information technology services company will bring at least 300 new jobs to Downtown Milwaukee.
GalaxE.Solutions and Northwestern Mutual jointly announced “Outsource to Milwaukee,” a plan that focuses on creating an IT hub downtown. This mirrors similar plans in Detroit and Hartford, Conn.
“Milwaukee is a tremendous city to live and work, and its access to talent, top academic institutions and tremendous opportunities for collaboration makes it an outstanding location for our next investment,” said Tim Bryan, CEO, GalaxE.Solutions in a statement.
“In the post COVID-19 world, overseas work-from-home challenges with infrastructure, security and compliance are creating critical problems for U.S. companies that rely on technology to do business,” Bryan continued. “Our model brings much of that work and jobs back to the U.S. using domestic teams and transformational technology to provide greater accuracy and efficiencies for a competitive alternative to outsourcing abroad.”
The new partnership is in the process of picking office space for its downtown innovation center.
