NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Hundreds of new jobs are headed to Franklin. Monday, Governor Bill Haslam along with Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd announced plans by financial services firm UBS to open a new office in Cool Springs.

UBS will invest $11.2 million dollars to outfit the space at One Franklin Park. The expansion will create over 350 new jobs over the next several years.

“When a globally recognized brand like UBS decides to invest here and then continues to expand, it strengthens Tennessee's brand and our ability to compete in the global marketplace. That’s exciting news for Tennessee and is another step forward in our effort to become the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs,” said Governor Haslam.

Just two years ago, UBS invested $36.5 million to establish the UBS Nashville Business Solution creating over 1,000 new jobs over the next five years.
