Employment could grow to 1,500 at Hunt Valley campus by 2020
Bank of America is planning to add about 600 new jobs at its Hunt Valley complex, significantly expanding its Baltimore County operations. The anticipated increase follows the addition of nearly 300 jobs in 2017.
“Adding 900 new jobs in three years is a big boost for our economy. Bank of America chose to expand in Baltimore County because we provided what the company needed — a talented financial services workforce and responsive local government that expedited approvals to meet the expansion timeline,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz.
Bank of America, one of the world’s leading financial institutions and the largest bank in the Baltimore region, anticipates a total of about 1,500 jobs at its Hunt Valley campus by 2020.
Bank of America upgraded a two-building 377,000 square foot complex at McCormick and Shawan Roads in Hunt Valley, upgrading interiors and increasing parking to accommodate their growing workforce.
“We are pleased to expand our base of operations in Baltimore County and the great state of Maryland, and we are appreciative of our public servants who work tirelessly on behalf of the community we are proud to serve,” said Bank of America Greater Maryland Market President Sabina Kelly.
Hunt Valley is one of Baltimore County’s most vibrant employment centers, with McCormick’s new global headquarters opening in 2018, light rail and interstate access, and the amenities of Hunt Valley Towne Centre across the street from the Bank of America campus.
The new jobs primarily will comprise call center and staff support positions.
“Our new Baltimore County Job Connector program is launching just as Bank of America is beginning recruitment for 600 new jobs,” added Kamenetz.
Kamenetz recently announced a $2.5 million Baltimore County Job Connector program to help businesses recruit, train and match workers with jobs in high-demand fields such as corporate operations/customer service, healthcare and logistics/distribution.
