Part of key agreement with Transamerica insurance arm
ST PETERSBURG/ MUMBAI: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, welcomed more than 430 new employees to St Petersburg, Florida, as part of its ground-breaking agreement with
Transamerica to transform the administration of its US insurance and annuity business lines.
TCS will occupy several floors of Transamerica’s building at 570 Carillon Parkway in St Petersburg, as part of a multi-year agreement with Transamerica to rapidly enhance its digital capabilities, simplify the service of more than 10 million policies into an integrated modern platform, and drive growth opportunities through superior customer service. More than 430 former Transamerica employees now work for TCS at this new St Petersburg facility, as part of TCS recruiting and investing in more than 2,200 Transamerica jobs across the US in multiple locations.
“This is great news, not just for St Petersburg, but for all of Florida. Through tax cuts and our business friendly environment, Florida continues to attract and grow world-class businesses like TCS that create jobs for our families and have a positive impact on our communities,” said Governor Rick Scott.
He said the Tampa Bay area is one of the fastest growing areas of the state and is a leader in demand for STEM jobs.
The St Petersburg office is a new US business centre for TCS, adding to the 1,000+ employees already serving American businesses throughout the state. As part of TCS’ ongoing investment in the region, the company plans to expand its flagship ‘go IT’ education program, which was successfully launched last year in St. Petersburg.
