Nashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe today, Tuesday, June 20th, 2020 announced that Agero, Inc. plans to invest $2 million in capital to expand its operations in Clarksville and create 900 jobs by 2025.
To support this growth, Agero has expanded its Clarksville operations by nearly 14,000 square feet.
Agero is the leading B2B provider of driver assistance services, including roadside assistance and accident management. The company supports more than 115 million vehicles in partnership with leading automakers, insurance carriers and other clients. The company responds to approximately 12 million requests for roadside and accident assistance annually.
Agero first established operations in Montgomery County in 2012. Approximately 750 employees in Clarksville provide critical roadside assistance services to drivers throughout the U.S. With a second Tennessee facility based in the Tri-Cities area, the new jobs and financial investment will further strengthen Agero’s presence in the state.
Since 2015, TNECD has supported five economic development projects in Montgomery County, resulting in the creation of 1,800 jobs and $1 billion in private capital investment.
Hiring is underway and the company is interviewing for a variety of on-site and remote work positions. Applicants can apply online at Agero.com/careers.
