ADT hiring in Knoxville

Just arrived in Chicago a couple hours ago for an ADT media event which starts tomorrow morning and I happened to see this news item about ADT looking to hire 50 people now and “dozens more through the rest of the year” at its (formerly Brinks/Broadview) Knoxville, Tenn. central station

This event I'm attending is commercial-, government- and enterprise-business focused, but this place will be swimming with ADT folks tomorrow, so I expect I'll be able to find someone to field a question or two about the hiring spree at the Knoxville central.

From the story:

“Candace Lane, a human resources manager with ADT, said the job growth stems from ADT’s $2 billion acquisition last year of Brinks/Broadview Security, which had operated the Knoxville call center and opened the current facility in 2006.

“We’re now in the process of integrating the two businesses. As a result of that process, we are expanding our work force here,” Lane said. “We’re now supporting ADT customers as well. Knoxville now is handling 6.3 million customers in the U.S. and Canada.”
