We look forward to continuing to be a strong corporate citizen and employer of choice in this community.
Linda Machado, head of Aetna service operations in Fresno
“We look forward to continuing to be a strong corporate citizen and employer of choice in this community,” said Linda Machado, head of service operations in Fresno. “Adding new jobs will positively contribute to the area’s economy as well as our company’s service operations, so it’s a win-win situation.”
The Fresno facility is Aetna’s only service operations center in California. Its sales offices are in other states. California Competes, a state income tax credit, will be used to support Aetna’s expansion plans in Fresno.
“We are thrilled that Aetna will soon add 225 new jobs to their Fresno office over the next few years,” said Mayor Ashley Swearengin in a news release. “It’s been a pleasure to work with the company during the expansion process, which we believe highlights the positive, business-friendly environment that Fresno strives to foster with employers.”
