Roch. firm to add 50 to 60 more jobs
Here's some from a piece I have in print today about The Affiliated Group growing due to new contracts, including one particularly large municipal one.
Unpaid bills are adding up to about 50 to 60 new jobs for Rochester, as a local firm's business explodes with new contracts.
The Affiliated Group, a locally owned debt collection company, is gearing up for the launch of a new, large contract in September.
About 80 to 85 people now work at Affiliated at 3055 41st St. N.W. in the complex formerly known as the IBM White Buildings.
Affiliated President Mark Neeb says his team needs to have staffing ready to go about four weeks prior to starting this contract with a large municipal government.
"By the end of September, we plan to bring 30 on for sure," he says."Within 12 months, that one contract will have — by my best estimate — about 40 on staff."
The client city did not give Affiliated permission to release its name, but Neeb says it is not a local municipality.
About four other smaller municipal projects are also slated to start this fall, for an estimated total of 50 to 60 new jobs during the next year, Neeb says.
