Why wait?

DID YOU KNOW? Tampa Bay has emerged as the preferred destination for corporate shared services operations – a claim easily backed up with the fact that 10% of the Fortune 50 and 9% of the Fortune 100 have located here.

Tampa Bay hosts more than 40 back office and shared services operations that employ over 40,000 local residents. Major financial firms include:


  • Raymond James Financial
  • T. Rowe Price

  • Citigroup


Other big names in Tampa Bay are:

  • Coca Cola Enterprises
  • FedEx LTL Administrative Center
  • Geico Direct
  • Lockheed Martin

Key decision factors that brought these companies to Tampa Bay:

  • Access to human resources talent – particularly four-year college trained individuals. There are over 64,000 four-year college students in the area.
  • Tampa International Airport – non-stop access to nearly 70 major North American cities with competitive fares within 30 minutes drive time.
  • Attitude toward business – the local governments and business leaders have a strong interest in supporting the growth of back office and shared services operations in the Tampa Bay area.
  • Competitive operating costs – the cost of labor and real estate is substantially less than in New York City. Labor is estimated at 15-20%+ less than in New York City and real estate is estimated at 50-70% less than in New York City.
