Another Los Angeles-Area Tech Company Creates Lots of Jobs . . . 800 Miles Away & Out of State
PCM, an El Segundo-based IT services provider, will open a sales center in Rio Rancho, New Mexico this summer, with the first of more than 200 employees coming on board in August.
Gov. Susana Martinez and other state officials, on a recent trade mission to California, asked the company’s CEO to consider New Mexico.
PCM provides technology support to clients that include the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals and Green Bay Packers, Sea World, Wendy’s, GE, and others. Salaries of the sales positions will range between $45,000 and $65,000.
Frank Khulusi, CEO and founder of PCM, said, “Meeting with Gov. Martinez and her team in California was a game changer. Learning about New Mexico’s improved business environment and talented workforce was a deciding factor in expanding our operations to this state.”
The publicly traded company will generate $2.2 billion in sales this year.
