In Their Words

Today there are more financial services firms headquartered in St. Louis than in any other city in the U.S. besides New York. That’s okay. Good competitors make you better.

— Edward Jones / Jim Weddle

Over nine decades, our employees in St. Louis have played a crucial role in the growth of our firm, from both a local and global perspective.

— Cushman & Wakefield / Joseph Stettinius

I’m not sure what my expectations were, but I’ve been surprised by the talent of the pool we’ve got to work with in the local area, and by ‘the local area’ I mean not only Columbia, but St. Louis, Kansas City, and Rolla.

— IBM / Jim Chapdelaine

One of our top executives was working for us out in Los Altos, California. And he came to us and said,’Please let me move there.’ He’s been in Kansas City 3 or 4 years now, and he loves it. I don’t think you could get him to leave.

— Handmark / Augie Grasis III

We train displaced workers in rural Missouri for today's IT jobs to keep those jobs in the country. Missouri incentives got us started. The work ethic of our employees keeps us going.

— Onshore Outsourcing / Shane Mayes

We have some untapped, unrealized potential here. If there’s anyplace that’s going to take the lead in the global marketplace, it’s going to be St. Louis. St. Louis is visionary, open-minded.

— World Wide Technology / David Steward

The work ethic here is really good. People come in and work hard. They’re used to working hard before we hire them.

— Jack Henry & Associates / Jack Prim

I've lived in a lot of places, and there is a difference here in how people conduct themselves. There is a strong work ethic and friendliness that I haven't found elsewhere.

— Triumph Pharmaceuticals / Dr. Susanne Cohen

One Call utilizes clinical oversight to help create better outcomes for employers and injured workers, so making sure we can hire and train candidates in Springfield who can provide this kind of specialized service was critical to our decision. Finding an available ‘plug and play’ building in Springfield meant we could fast track our new service center for our customers.

— One Call Care Management / Chris Watson

Square is proud to be from St. Louis and thrilled to expand our presence here, where we’ve exceeded our growth expectations thanks to the wealth of local talent. St. Louis is home to tens of thousands of Square sellers and we’re thankful for the support of our city and state partners in furthering their growth. We’re excited for what’s ahead.

— Square / Jim McKelvey

We are pleased to be expanding into Kansas City, a vibrant community made up of thousands of small businesses, tech start-ups, and top-notch health care. A diverse, highly-educated workforce, an affordable cost of living and numerous cultural amenities make Kansas City a very desirable place to live and work.

— TrialCard / Mark Bouck

A robust experienced talent pool made O’Fallon, Missouri, the perfect location for our expansion. Opening an operation center in Missouri was the next logical step in making sure we can exceed our clients’ expectations every day.

— Cenlar / Gregory Tornquist
