Connecture, a health insurance software company with offices located in City of Pewaukee, announced Monday that its moving its headquarters from Atlanta, GA, to Waukesha County. The move will add more than 100 new jobs to the Waukesha area.
The State of Wisconsin has agreed to contribute $1.2 million in tax credits and incentives over a three-year period, Gov. Scott Walker said during a news conference at the Connecture offices Monday afternoon.
“These are not just jobs,” Walker said, adding that they are high-paying jobs in a technological field.
Walker, using words from his campaign for governor, said he hopes the announcement shows to other employers in the state that “Wisconsin is open for business.”
“It is not just a slogan, it is not just a sign,” Walker said. “It is something that we need to show each and every day. “
Walker’s visit at Connecture was not without a small group of protestors, who were chanting anti-Walker sayings outside the business.
