North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue's office says an educational publisher that owns the LexisNexis information service plans to add 350 jobs over the next five years.
Perdue's office said Tuesday that data-provider Reed Elsevier is expanding its operations in Cary, N.C. thanks in part to a state tax break that could be worth up to $9 million if the company meets hiring and investment requirements.
The company now employs more than 300 people in Cary and Charlotte, part of more than 30,000 people worldwide. Reed Elsevier plans to concentrate further marketing, sales, customer support and product development work at the Wake County site.
State officials say wages for the new jobs are expected to be nearly $92,000 plus benefits. The average annual wage in Wake County is $45,000.
