(NASDAQ: TTEC), a leading global provider of analytics-driven, technology-enabled customer engagement solutions, today announced that it is hiring ahead of next month's opening of a state of the art customer experience center in Paducah, Kentucky.

"We have worked diligently with TeleTech for the past 18 months to develop this customer contact center in Paducah," said Paducah Economic Development President/CEO Chad Chancellor. "Today, all of our dedicated time and effort has paid off as they begin to on board employees to stable, rewarding jobs. We look forward to continuing work with TeleTech to reconstruct the downtown commerce center into a second location in Paducah which will create even more jobs in the coming months."
