KANSAS CITY, MO - Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and State Representative Jason Holsman, D-Kansas City, welcomed Genesis 10 to Kansas City and applauded the one-hundred new jobs that will accompany the business's Grand Opening.  Holsman called the event “a piece of economic good news for South Kansas City.”

On Monday morning, Gov. Nixon, Holsman, and representatives of the Kansas City business community took part in a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Kansas City office of Genesis 10 located at 8330 Ward Parkway, Suite 400.  Genesis 10 is a national business and technology leader headquartered in New York City.  The company expects to create more than 100 new jobs, with total salaries of more than $7.5 million, at the Kansas City office this year.

The state of Missouri was a key partner in efforts to recruit Genesis 10 to Kansas City, offering a highly competitive package of strategic economic incentives.

“Genesis 10 brings the type of long term, good paying, high-tech jobs that continues to strengthen our economy. South Kansas City is building a reputation as a great place for high-tech companies to locate and create new jobs.” Holsman said.
