We made a major annoucement this morning. Jacksonville will be the headquarters for the global leader in business decisioning data and analytics, Dun & Bradstreet. The move will create 500 new, high-paying jobs for our community.
This announcement is the result of innovation and teamwork from all levels: the company, the state, our business community, and City government. Thank you to CEO Anthony Jabbour and the team at the company for your confidence in Jacksonville and our prominence as a growing hub for financial services. Thanks to Governor Ron DeSantis and his team for their continued support for Jacksonville and Northeast Florida. And thanks to Daniel Davis, Aundra Wallace, and the amazing professionals at JAX Chamber and JAXUSA Partnership.
I am extremely appreciative for everyone coming together, and working together, to make this deal a reality for our community.
This announcement is a big deal for our Jacksonville, in many ways. It creates 500 jobs over the next 5 years, with an average salary of $77,000. It includes an estimated $77 million in capital investments. And it builds upon our success, momentum, and prestige as an emerging community for the financial services & technology sector.
Dun & Bradstreet has close ties to other local companies with a global footprint: Black Knight and Fidelity National Financial. This move will further strengthen those relationships and leverage them for even greater growth in the years ahead.
With state incentives already approved, my team and I will take legislation to City Council in the next few weeks for review and approval. I look forward to working with my colleagues to secure this win for our community.
