To reaffirm The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation’s (DTCC) commitment to building and maintaining good relations with the Tampa business community and elected officials, company executives hosted a reception for more than 50 local leaders at the Tampa Museum of Art in late September.
“The City of Tampa, Hillsborough County and the State of Florida have been great partners of ours since 2004, and we look forward to strengthening these relationships for years to come,” said Michael Bodson, DTCC President and Chief Executive Officer.
Former Florida Governor Robert Martinez, U.S. Congressman Dennis Ross (R-FL 15th District) and former U.S. Congressman Jim Davis (D-FL 11th District), Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, Hillsborough County Commissioner Mark Sharpe, Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor, and Tampa Fire Rescue Chief Thomas Forward, among other prominent elected officials and business leaders, attended the event and acknowledged DTCC’s contribution to the Tampa community.
DTCC’s Tampa office started as a redundant operations center but is now a fully operational business center in its own right. In April, DTCC announced that it will bring 255 new jobs to DTCC Tampa. In addition, the company announced a $4.8 million investment to its Florida campus as part of the company’s long-term expansion strategy. With the expansion plans and investment in the Tampa campus, DTCC will continue to improve its technology, facilities and resources in order to strengthen its ability to provide stability and certainty to global financial markets. “This expansion aligns with DTCC’s workforce location and sourcing strategy and allows us to continue to provide our clients with exceptional service while meeting the needs for long-term sustainability,” said Eric Miller, Managing Director and Head of DTCC Tampa. “In the coming years, we’ll continue to grow our footprint in Tampa.”
