SHERMAN, Tex. -- It looks like once again Texoma is overcoming the economic odds and beating the recession affecting much of the rest of the country. Another company signed on to set up a new call center in Sherman on Monday, bringing 168 full-time jobs to town.
Capio Partners signed an agreement with the Sherman Economic Development Corporation and will soon be taking over the old Cigna building on Texoma Parkway. SEDCO president John Boswell says the group is committed to developing our area.
"We’re spending an awful lot of money and time trying to catch the attention of businesses to look our way, an awful lot of marketing time and effort. And I think this is a result of those efforts," Boswell says.
Boswell says Capio could begin hiring as early as May and says the average wage is expected to be $14 an hour.
