AT&T announces 100 new support jobs in OKC

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- AT&T Inc. says it is bringing more than 100 new jobs to Oklahoma at a center that will serve small- and medium-size business customers.

The company said Thursday that 25 project managers have already been hired for the new office in Oklahoma City.

Officials say AT&T will draw on a number of state incentives, including the Oklahoma Quality Jobs Program, the Training for Industry Program and the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber's Strategic Investment Program.

Bryan Gonterman, president of AT&T Oklahoma, says the company could have placed the jobs anywhere in the country. He cited the state's business climate as a key reason for AT&T picking Oklahoma.
