AIG plans to add 300 jobs in Olathe
Olathe State officials were on hand to celebrate a ribbon cutting at a new contact center for American International Group in Olathe.
The insurance company plans to add 300 new employees at the center, which will offer claims and policy servicing operations. The Kansas City Star reports AIG received state and city incentives to locate in a 55-acre business park that is under development.
AIG president Peter Hancock says the company will add the 300 jobs by end of 2015. The company already employs more than 600 workers in Olathe.
The center also will provide business and management training and career opportunities for students and alumni of the University of Kansas School of Business.
