Perdue said the deal was made possible in part by a $1 million grant from the One North Carolina Fund.

"North Carolina remains a strong presence in the U.S. finance sector and this is a tremendous opportunity for the Charlotte-area," Perdue said. "Our top-rated business climate and skilled financial services workforce are attractive to growing national operations."

A job fair will be held Friday and Saturday, June 12-13, at NACA's Counseling Center located at 5855 Executive Center Drive in Charlotte.
