TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Rick Scott says that Navy Federal Credit Union will create 1,500 jobs in Northwest Florida.
Scott on Wednesday announced the credit union's physical and workforce expansion at a Pensacola news conference. The credit union is open to service members and their families.
It will be the fourth expansion for the credit union since opening in 2003 in Pensacola. It already employs almost 3,000 people.
Additional property that was bought will allow the credit union to put up two new buildings to house the new workers.
