The Tulsa Metro Chamber announced plans for a global commodity trading and risk management consulting and solutions firm to bring new jobs to Tulsa.
Officials say capSpire, in partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Commerce and the Tulsa Metro Chamber, plans to bring 30 new jobs to Tulsa over the next three years through the state’s 21st Century Quality Jobs Program.
According to capSpire CEO Lance Laubach, capSpire is committed to the Tulsa region’s continued success as one of the leading energy and technology centers in the country.
“Given our large base of current and potential clients in the Tulsa area, capSpire has designated our offices here to be a key hub for expansion, as well as a primary site of our software development efforts worldwide,” Laubach said. “We look forward to offering a unique and highly dynamic work environment to the high-tech talent pool that exists in Tulsa.”
Recruiting is already under way to fill a variety of open positions within the company’s downtown Tulsa office, located at 11 E. 5th St.
“We are in the process of hiring qualified individuals to provide CTRM software development, consulting and support services here in Tulsa,” Laubach said. “These new employees will serve some of the largest energy companies in the world.”
Tulsa Metro Chamber President and CEO Mike Neal said: “We are thrilled that capSpire has experienced success in the Tulsa region and is expanding its workforce. I am very pleased to congratulate the entire capSpire organization on their continued growth in northeast Oklahoma.”
