Prometric Opens New $12 Million Global Operations Hub
Center Brings 250 Jobs to White Marsh
Towson, Maryland (July 9, 2013) – Prometric has opened a new $12 million Global Operations Center of Excellence in White Marsh. The 60,000 square foot facility brings 250 jobs to White Marsh from Minnesota and other parts of Maryland.
Prometric conducts testing on behalf of clients in the academic, financial, government, healthcare, professional, corporate and information technology markets. Prometric's Global Operations hub supports more than 10 million certification exams per year over a network of 8,200 test sites in more than 160 countries.
"Prometric is a global company that now has even more local economic impact," said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. "Baltimore County's economic development and workforce teams worked closely with Prometric to recruit professionals for the new center."
The 250 jobs at the Prometric Operations Center on Corporate Drive include 100 new jobs and 150 relocating employees. Functions managed out of the new White Marsh facility include oversight of Prometric's global test center network, global help desk, contact centers, on-demand testing and candidate support.
"We welcome Prometric to our business community as they bring hundreds of jobs and new investment to White Marsh," said Councilwoman Cathy Bevins.
"Our company's most fundamental purpose is to produce reliable and valid test results for people to fairly demonstrate their knowledge and expertise. These are the exams your physicians, teachers, accountants, law enforcement officers, architects and other distinguished professionals successfully complete to gain the public trust," said Michael Brannick, Prometric's President and CEO.
"The open design and layout of the Prometric Operations Center generates greater opportunity for collaboration and dialogue between our employees and across their functional areas," added Brannick. "This model puts into practice our belief that people instigate change and affords us the ability to find better, faster and more cost-effective solutions for our clients."
