Sunera Announces Expansion of Tampa Headquarters
Sunera LLC is adding 40 new consulting jobs in its Tampa headquarters to support its information technology, information security, and data privacy functions.
February 9, 2015 (FPRC) -- Sunera LLC announced plans today to expand its headquarters in Tampa, Florida, by hiring an additional 41 consulting employees over the next 3 years and moving to a larger office within the Fifth Third Center. The announcement follows the approval of Sunera's Qualified Target Industry (QTI) application at the city, county, and state levels.
The announcement was made in conjunction with the State of Florida and the Office of Governor Rick Scott.
Governor Scott said, “We are excited to announce Sunera’s expansion in Tampa, which will create more jobs for Florida families. We work every day to create an environment where our job creators can succeed, and Florida businesses have added more than 728,000 private-sector jobs in four years. We know that every job transforms a family, and we will keep working every day to make Florida the global destination for jobs.”
Founded in 2005, Sunera is the trusted advisor of some of the world’s largest companies, with more than 100 employees in Florida and more than 200 across North America. The new positions in Tampa will support the growth of the firm’s information security practice and help expand its information technology audit, information security, and data privacy functions.
Joel Schleicher, Board Chairman of Sunera and Cyber Risk Management, LLC, said, “Sunera and CRM are proud to continue growing their consulting operations in Tampa. We are excited to be adding an additional 40 high-wage, high-skilled jobs to the downtown core, and we look forward to filling these positions with the top IT and security professionals in the area. As we work to meet the growing demand for our services, we will look both to experienced professionals in Tampa and the top graduates at our local universities. We are thankful for the support of the city, the county, and the State of Florida, and look forward to contributing to the growing high-tech industry in the Tampa Bay area.”
The project was made possible through strong partnerships among Enterprise Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Hillsborough County, the City of Tampa, and the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation.
The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Jesse Panuccio said, “It is exciting news for our state that Sunera and CRM are expanding in Florida’s emergent high-tech corridor. These 40 new high-skill, high-wage jobs over the next three years in STEM fields mean that more Floridians will have the opportunity to use their education in the workplace while bolstering Florida’s high-tech reputation.”
“Companies like Sunera are building Tampa’s international reputation as a major center for information security,” said Mayor Bob Buckhorn, City of Tampa. “The information technology and cyber security companies that have launched and are growing here are setting the standard for the industry. We will continue to do all we can to support the success and expansion of our local IT sector and deeply appreciate the high wage, high tech jobs they bring to our city.”
