When UBS put its business solutions center into downtown Nashville, the financial giant planned 1,000 jobs. Today, Bob McCann, CEO of UBS Wealth Management Americas, told The Tennessean that number will be smashed when it's all said and done:
"We’re very excited about where we are today, and I’m very comfortable saying this time next year we’ll have 1,500 people."
UBS is currently renovating two floors at the former Regions Center (the tower now bears UBS' name) to add 45,000 square feet of space for 400 more workers, according to Getahn Ward's report.
The company also plans to open a wealth management center of some sort, possibly in Cool Springs, according to the NBJ.
"We're looking to take that number higher. The target over the next year is to have around 270 [wealth management employees in Tennessee]," Johnson said. The success of the financial center downtown has "given us the tailwind to do further expansion," he added.
