AT&T announced today it is bringing 100 new management jobs to Oklahoma City as it expands its business services division.

The announcement was made at the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber in a news conference attended by Gov. Mary Fallin and Mayor Mick Cornett.

“Oklahoma is a great place to do business,” said Bryan Gonterman, president of AT&T Oklahoma. “Our company could have placed these jobs anywhere in the country, and we chose Oklahoma City. We plan to create more than 100 jobs in Oklahoma. The friendly business climate, high quality of life and excellent workforce make this state a place I'm proud to call home and my company is excited to invest in.”

The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber reported the deal includes the offering of undisclosed incentives that will include the Oklahoma Quality Jobs Program, the Training for Industry Program offered by the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education, as well as the Strategic Investment Program coordinated by the chamber.

The average pay for the jobs will be $41,000 a year. Gonterman reported 26 people are already hired, and he hopes to have 76 added by the end of the year. AT&T employs about 4,000 statewide, and about 2,000 in Oklahoma City. The new operations will be based at the AT&T center at 14101 Wireless Way where 600 employees are currently stationed.
