Texas-based Goosehead sought to establish a new national sales center that could accommodate recent business growth in its personal lines of insurance. The facility would focus on securing and servicing customers through Goosehead’s advanced proprietary technology platform.
Goosehead will invest in Central Ohio for its growth. Workforce potential was a key driver of the company’s decision.
Ohio is the fifth largest financial services industry in the U.S., with a workforce of over 240,000 individuals and more than 44,000 college graduates joining the workforce annually.
