My thanks to the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance for its great work in this effort.”
“In partnership with our clients, we help millions of consumers every year solve the often complex issues that come with interconnected devices by providing a single, friendly and knowledgeable expert support technician, capable of addressing a wide range of hardware and software topics and issues,” said Sue Nokes, senior vice president of customer solutions at Asurion. “We are proud to call Las Vegas home to our newest Premier Support Solutions center.

“With a targeted focus to further develop Nevada’s Information Technology industry, Asurion’s commitment to southern Nevada is an important step forward in solidifying the state’s presence in the industry. I thank Asurion for its commitment to Nevada,” said Steve Hill, Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “The State’s location and business-friendly environment were two of the top reasons that Asurion chose Nevada over thirteen other qualified cities/locations. Over the next ten years, the estimated economic impact from Asurion is over $1 billion –a significant footprint on Nevada’s economy, especially in southern Nevada. I welcome Asurion to Nevada, and I hope the company will continue to expand in Nevada in the years to come.”
