COLLEGE STATION (December 2, 2013) Cognizant, a major information and technology company, is relocating its U.S. operations hub from Teaneck, N.J., College Station and expects to add 10,000 jobs nationwide over the next three years, the firm’s president, Gordon Coburn, said Monday.
Coburn said the company is relocating to College Station in part to draw potential employees from Texas A&M University.
Appearing at an event with Gov. Rick Perry, Coburn praised Texas' business climate and said 750 of the positions, or perhaps more, would be created in Texas alone by around 2016.
Perry and Cognizant also announced a 3-year, $150,000 grant to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics education at Texas A&M.
Cognizant employs about 166,000 people worldwide, and already has 2,000 employees in Texas.
