BERKELEY HEIGHTS – Governor Phil Murphy, along with company representatives and local and state elected officials, today celebrated the groundbreaking of a new Fiserv office in Berkeley Heights
Fiserv, a global leader in the financial technology sector, will be expanding its footprint in New Jersey, bringing 3,000 jobs together in one location, including 1,927 new jobs and 1,063 already existing positions.
“I’m thrilled that Fiserv has not only chosen to stay in New Jersey, but that this global company will be tripling its workforce in our state,” said Governor Murphy. “This announcement represents what we’ve been working for more than three years as we strive to reclaim our position as a global leader in technology and innovation.”
“As a fintech leader and talent destination, Fiserv is proud to expand our presence in New Jersey, extending our decades-long commitment to the state,” said Frank Bisignano, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fiserv. “Our new location will be a dynamic hub for associates, allowing us to bring our people together to inspire innovation and collaboration as we create digital-first banking and payments capabilities and commerce solutions that enable our clients to serve customers in a rapidly evolving world.”
Fiserv currently provides payments and financial services technology for 125,000 business locations and 150 financial institutions based in New Jersey.
The majority of the jobs at the new Fiserv hub will be technology-related roles and the new campus will serve as a strategic center of excellence for technology innovation.
The company will partner with local universities including Rutgers University – Newark to create programs and opportunities for their students and graduates.
The new campus at 100 Connell Drive includes 428,000 square feet of space in a single four-story building. Fiserv will invest in enhancements and pursue Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for the building.
"New jobs are key to our success as a state. The Connell Center in Berkeley Heights is a terrific location. The Connell family have always been leaders in our state. Welcome to New Jersey," said Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick.
"By creating new employment opportunities in a growing industry, we are giving New Jerseyans the tools to succeed, which is especially important to a post-pandemic economic recovery. Fiserv recognizes the top talent they will be able to attract by building in Berkeley Heights and we know it will bring high-paying jobs to the area and keep jobs in New Jersey. It’s a win-win," said Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz.
“Today Berkeley Heights is gaining another strong partner. I look forward to Fiserv becoming an instrumental piece of the fabric of our community," said Berkeley Heights Mayor Angie Devanney.
