The recent opening of Fidelity Investments' new regional office near Denver was attended by Governor John Hickenlooper; Mayor Pro Tem of Greenwood Village Gary Kramer; representatives from the local business and nonprofit communities; and Fidelity executives and associates.

In January, Fidelity announced that it would open a new customer contact center in Colorado, which would employ as many as 500 people. Fidelity has been hiring aggressively and currently employs about 200 associates in Greenwood Village in a variety of positions.

“We welcome Fidelity Investments to its new home in Colorado,” Governor John Hickenlooper said in a statement. “We’re pleased to see a national financial services firm like Fidelity select Colorado as a regional site. The addition of these new, highly-skilled jobs further boosts Colorado’s reputation as a highly desirable destination for businesses of all sizes in a variety of industries, including the financial services sector.”

“Fidelity’s decision to locate its new customer contact center in Greenwood Village is a credit to the vision of the city’s economic development leaders,” said Greenwood Village Mayor Ronald Rakowsky in a statement “The Denver South region provides the talent, quality of life and solid reputation as a global commercial gateway that will continue to drive economic growth in the future.”
