ST. PETERSBURG — Kobie Marketing is on pace to adding 255 jobs at its downtown St. Petersburg headquarters, including 85 filled by the end of this year.
Gov. Rick Scott plans highlighted the expansion at the loyalty marketing firm this afternoon during a visit to St. Petersburg, part of a statewide jobs and tax cut "victory tour."
New positions at Kobie being filled this year include project managers, developers, creative designers, copywriters, strategists and consultants.
"We look forward to the collaboration and support of the city, county and state as we continue to attract and retain some of the best and brightest resources in the country," Ashby Green, chief financial officer of Kobie Marketing, said in a statement. "I am pleased to announce our plans to expand our Kobie footprint within the community that we've called home for more than 25 years, Pinellas County."
