Thomson Reuters will start internal cybersecurity operations center in a city of Richmond. The firm will cover 10,000 square feet at Riverfront Plaza and employs up to 60 people by the end of 2018. “Richmond is an emerging leader in innovation and technology. We are where America’s most progressive businesses want to locate and grow,” said Mayor Levar M. Stoney.
“Thomson Reuters’ decision to establish its internal cybersecurity unit here in our capital city is a great win for Richmond,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Todd Haymore. “More than 70,000 Virginians are employed in the booming cybersecurity field and demand is not slowing down. Creating well-paid jobs in this industry is critical to maintaining the Commonwealth’s competitive business climate. We look forward to the success of Thomson Reuters in Richmond and stand ready to support the company any way we can.”
McAuliffe, Governor approved a $50,000 grant to aid city with the project. “Richmond works hard to remain an attractive city for companies to locate, relocate, and expand,” said Delegate Jeff Bourne. “Thomson Reuters’ decision to grow its business and create over 60 cybersecurity jobs in Richmond is a tremendous victory for our city.”
