AUSTIN (KXAN) – More than 820 jobs will be created in Austin as part of a Texas Enterprise Fund Investment in the Charles Schwab Corporation, Gov. Rick Perry announced Thursday.

The jobs are contingent on a local economic incentive package. The TEF is making a $4.5 million investment to make the 823 additional Austin jobs possible. Charles Schwab already has about 1,000 employees in Austin.

“We are very pleased to be expanding our footprint in Texas,” said Joseph Martinetto, executive vice president and chief financial officer at Schwab.

The company will also create 445 jobs in El Paso as part of a $1.45 million investment agreement with TEF. The company hopes to hire veterans in the nearby Fort Bliss community as part of the project.
