Today, Dun & Bradstreet Holdings, Inc. (“Dun & Bradstreet”) (NYSE:DNB), a leading global provider of business decisioning data and analytics, announced its plans to open a new office in Jacksonville and designate the location as its corporate headquarters. The move will create 500 new jobs over the next five years and generate $75 million in capital investment.
“Dun & Bradstreet bringing its headquarters and 500 great paying jobs to Jacksonville is further evidence that Florida is staying on the offense in supporting businesses and job growth,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “I’m thrilled for the significant investments this will mean for Jacksonville, as a long-time industry leader like Dun & Bradstreet is certain to raise the profile of the city’s expanding market sectors. Florida continues to outpace the nation in job growth because we are all-in committed to both creating the friendliest environment for business in the country and simultaneously developing world class talent pipelines.”
“Jacksonville is proud to welcome Dun & Bradstreet and their new corporate headquarters to our community,” said Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry. “To have such a globally respected company select Jacksonville as their home demonstrates our growing stature as a leading destination for the financial services sector, and clear confidence in the skills and abilities of our local workforce.”
“As we continue to make strategic investments to best position Dun & Bradstreet for long-term growth, we are honored to have the opportunity to open a new office and shift our corporate headquarters to Jacksonville,” said Anthony Jabbour, CEO of Dun & Bradstreet. “Jacksonville is an attractive market to recruit and retain future, diverse talent and we look forward to building our presence in the market and creating greater opportunities for advancement for the local community.”
State incentives were approved this week and an economic development package is expected to be introduced to the Jacksonville City Council in two weeks. As a result of the company’s significant investment, Dun & Bradstreet will qualify for $21 million in city incentives and $4 million from the state High-Impact Performance Incentive (HIPI).
“Dun & Bradstreet has made an excellent decision in relocating its headquarters to Florida, where Governor DeSantis has long declared that we are open for business,” said Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Secretary Dane Eagle. “This further proves that Florida’s business friendly climate serves as a beacon of economic freedom to the rest of the country, and we look forward to even more investments like this in the Sunshine State.”
“Dun & Bradstreet’s relocation is a testament to Governor DeSantis’ work to keep Florida open and ready for business,” said Florida Secretary of Commerce Jamal Sowell, president and CEO of Enterprise Florida. “We are excited that they have chosen Jacksonville as their new home and look forward to seeing how they will contribute to Northeast Florida’s growing economy.”
