KENNER, La. (AP) — An Atlanta-based technology firm has announced plans to move its headquarters to Kenner.
The move by software development and information technology company 4th Source was announced Thursday.
A statement from Gov. Bobby Jindal's office said the project will create 320 new jobs with an average salary of $50,000 plus benefits.
Louisiana economic development officials began discussions with 4th Source in December 2013. The state offered the company an incentive package, including a workforce training program. The state says 4th Source is expected to use Louisiana's Digital Interactive Media and Software Development Incentive, which provides a 25 percent refundable tax credit on eligible production expenditures.
NOLA.com-The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/1lL19Jk) that Michael Wedge, the CEO of 4th Source, grew up in New Orleans' Mid-City neighborhood and in Jefferson Parish.
