NYMBUS®, a leading provider of banking technology solutions, today announced it will open a new corporate headquarters office located in Jacksonville bringing more than 600 new jobs to the city’s downtown.
Nymbus chose the location due to its collaboration with Jacksonville-based VyStar Credit Union. The landmark partnership began earlier this year with VyStar’s $20 million investment in the newly formed Nymbus CUSO, and was recently extended with VyStar choosing Nymbus as its new online and mobile banking solution provider.
“The relocation of our headquarters from South Florida to Jacksonville represents a new partnership model that takes an excitingly progressive approach to vendor collaboration and accountability,” said Anne Miela, Chief Operations Officer at Nymbus. “Our teams are now afforded the opportunity to truly innovate alongside one another in a region that is experiencing substantial growth as a financial services and fintech hub.”
“Jacksonville continues to grow as a hub for the financial technology industry,” said Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry. “The relocation of this new corporate headquarters will bring hundreds more jobs to downtown Jacksonville, contributing to the growing momentum in our urban core.”
“Nymbus has proven to be an effective, valuable partner in our efforts to improve the member experience at VyStar and strengthen the credit union industry as a whole,” said Joe Colca, Senior Vice President of Digital Experience at VyStar. “We are thrilled to welcome them to Jacksonville and look forward to further collaboration that benefits our employees, members, and the communities we serve.”
Jacksonville is gaining notoriety as a global fintech powerhouse, with the recent news of Dun & Bradstreet‘s corporate headquarters move from New Jersey and the construction of the global headquarters for Jacksonville-based FIS, the largest fintech company in the world by revenue, to be completed in mid-2022. The Jacksonville region was also selected by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to be home to the state’s first fintech academy, a partnership between two state colleges and the corporate community to develop fintech talent.
