"World Business Lenders' large-scale hiring program is a welcome boost to the local economy, bringing hundreds of jobs to their worldwide headquarters here in Jersey City," said Jersey City Mayor Steven M. Fulop. "We are happy to welcome them as one of our newest corporate citizens and look forward to continuing to partner with them as they work to support the small business community."
"Since its relocation to New Jersey only a few months ago, World Business Lenders has already made tremendous contributions both to the Jersey City local economy, as well as to the greater New Jersey economy as a whole thanks to its large-scale hiring program," said U.S. Congressman Albio Sires. "We are proud that exemplary businesses like WBL have partnered with the State and call Hudson County its home."
"We at the Hudson County/Jersey City Workforce Development Board are very excited to build upon our relationship with World Business Lenders and our other workforce partners that have relocated here and boosted the Jersey City and Hudson County economies, making our city and county each a platform for future business growth," said John Fugazzie, Executive Director of the Hudson County/Jersey City Workforce Development Board. "World Business Lenders, having created over 100 new jobs in Hudson County in such a brief period of time, is particularly impressive to me because many of these positions have been filled by our own local residents. It is a stand-out partnership model for all of our workforce partners to follow."
World Business Lenders relocated from New York City to Jersey City, NJ, in July of 2016 with support from a Grow New Jersey (Grow NJ) award approved by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority. The company continues to grow its national footprint with the opening of three new branches in 2016, bringing its total number of branches to 10 nationwide.
