Winston-Salem, NC – July 2, 2015- Governor Pat McCrory announced today that Herbalife has chosen to relocate and expand their Information Services (IS) group and other back office operations from California to the company’s existing facility in Winston-Salem, NC. This decision will create 300 new jobs over the next three years with annual salaries ranging from $59,000 – $63,000. They will also be investing over $3,500,000 in building improvements and personal property.
Winston-Salem Business Inc. (WSBI) has been working with Herbalife since last summer to convince the company that Winston-Salem is an ideal location for these types of jobs.
Why Winston-Salem, North Carolina?
– Herbalife can gain synergies with their manufacturing and operations teams at the Winston-Salem facility.
– The company can further develop the scope of the Winston-Salem site as a “flagship” location.
– Herbalife will have access to North Carolina’s Information Technology talent pool.
Winston-Salem/Forsyth County was competing against Los Angeles, California, Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Guadalajara, Mexico for this project.
