Sep 25, 2015

SUNRISE, Fla. – Today, Governor Scott announced that Sunera, a leading provider of IT and Data Risk Consulting Services, is expanding and creating 32 new jobs in Sunrise. The company will retain 50 jobs and make a $270,000 capital investment in the community. Statewide, Sunera has created more than 150 jobs for Florida families. This announcement follows Sunera’s expansion of their Tampa location in February.

 

Governor Scott said, “Sunera is continuing to expand in Sunrise, creating more than 30 new jobs for Florida families, which is great news. Sunera chose to expand in Florida over other states like Texas, Georgia and Virginia, because they knew Florida’s business-friendly environment was the best place for continued success. Enterprise Florida was instrumental in helping Sunera expand, and we must fully fund EFI so that they can continue to help great companies like Sunera create jobs in Florida.”
