Georgia Governor Applauds Morgan Stanley For Reaching Hiring Goal In State

On Thursday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp applauded Morgan Stanley’s progress in growing its workforce across Atlanta after the company confirmed it is close to reaching its goal set in 2020 of adding 1,800 Georgians to its workforce.

As explained in a press release from Kemp’s office, “Morgan Stanley is a leading global financial services firm providing investment banking, securities, wealth management, and investment management services. With offices in more than 42 countries, the firm’s employees serve clients worldwide, including corporations, governments, institutions, and individuals. The company’s presence in Georgia was bolstered by its acquisition of E*TRADE Financial Corporation in 2020.”

Currently, more than 4,000 Georgians work for the company in various roles and functions, including Technology, Research, Human Resources and Operations and support roles for Morgan Stanley at Work and E*TRADE from Morgan Stanley.

“As the No. 1 state for business for nine years running, Georgia continues to attract companies from diverse industries that bring opportunity to communities all across the state,” said Kemp. “Morgan Stanley continues to grow their presence here because they know our workforce and partnership approach lead to success. These new jobs will ensure Georgia remains at the cutting edge of the financial services industry.”

Ekene Ezulike, Global Head of Corporate & Enterprise Services at Morgan Stanley, also responded to the news, saying, “Our expansion in Alpharetta will play a key role in growing and broadening our talent base to support our operations.
