Elected Officials and Local Leaders Welcome Ascensus to Business Community
Bob Guillocheau, Ascensus' chairman and CEO, Shannon Kelly, Ascensus' president of retirement, Bruce Wright, associate vice president and chief executive officer of Tech Parks Arizona, Mayor Jonathan Rothschild addressed event guests. Ambassadors from the Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce also joined in the ribbon cutting celebration.
"On behalf of Tucson and its residents, I'm pleased to welcome Ascensus to our community as part of our growing financial services sector," stated Mayor Rothschild. "Ascensus' mission of helping Americans plan for the future and achieve greater financial security aligns closely with our goal of assuring prosperity in our community, and we look forward to the firm's continued growth here."
Ascensus' Tucson office opened its doors on June 5, 2017 and is located in the University of Arizona Tech Park at Rita Road. This location not only allows for enhanced client service coverage in the Pacific and Mountain Time Zones where the firm has many existing client relationships, but it also offers access to the University of Arizona's talent pool. The office has an initial full-time staff of 60 associates and can accommodate up to 175 associates. In September, the office will expand to include a dedicated service team to support Ascensus' state-sponsored retirement plan clients.
"We are honored to join this community of thriving businesses and would like to thank Mayor Rothschild, the University of Arizona Tech Parks, and the Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce for their support in making our office opening such a great success," added Shannon Kelly.
