General Motors Financial today announced the completion of a new addition to its Arlington Operations Center campus in Arlington, Texas, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that featured remarks from State Sen. Brian Birdwell, State Rep. Chris Turner, City of Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams and GM Financial President and CEO Dan Berce. The $35 million investment is the Company’s fourth office location in the city of Arlington, and will house 1,300 employees working in core functions such as loan services, customer experience, remarketing solutions and human resources.GM Financial’s workforce has grown to approximately 4,500 team members across the state of Texas, with 75 percent of these employees based in the city of Arlington, where the Company has nearly doubled in size and employment since 2014. GM Financial’s physical presence in the state of Texas represents integral parts of its business, including the Company’s corporate headquarters in Fort Worth, operations center campus in Arlington, a servicing center in San Antonio that opens in 2017, and other operational facilities across the state.“GM Financial and the city of Arlington share a proud 18-year history together, and we are honored to expand our economic and employment footprint in this community with a new addition to our Arlington campus,” said Dan Berce, President and CEO of GM Financial. “This new facility underscores the significant growth we’ve experienced across our organization, as well as the impact Arlington’s talented workforce, spirit of collaboration and shared values have had, and will continue to have, on our success.”
GM Financial has also demonstrated a track record of community engagement in the city, as the Company and its team members are proud supporters of many philanthropic organizations that benefit Arlington and its residents. Uniquely, GM Financial offers each full-time team member 32 hours of paid time off each year to volunteer (part-time team members receive 16 hours per year), which equates to potentially thousands of volunteer hours in service to the Arlington community each year.
“GM Financial’s announcement in Arlington is another example of the economic growth we are seeing in the American Dream City,” said Mayor W. Jeff Williams. “In the last year we have seen major announcements like DR Horton moving its company headquarters to Arlington, incredible growth in our Entertainment District, and General Motors investing $1.4 billion dollars in its Assembly Plant. Now, GM Financial is expanding with a $32 million investment. And perhaps even more importantly, all of these moves are bringing quality, high paying jobs to our city. With a track record like that, it is clear dreams are getting done in Arlington.”GM Financial, which employs more than 7,000 team members in the U.S. and Canada, currently has financial servicing centers in Arlington, Texas; Chandler, Arizona; Huntersville, North Carolina; and, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. Additionally, GM Financial, headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, has 18 credit centers located across the U.S. and Canada.
