In a news release Friday, Gov. Nathan Deal announced that media company CBS Corp. will locate an information technology and software services center in Sandy Springs.

The company plans to create 101 jobs at this facility, which will provide IT support for many of its properties. It has several existing operations in Georgia.

“CBS Corporation is one of the most recognizable names in media and entertainment, so we are indeed glad to see the company put down more roots in Georgia, and create a significant amount of IT jobs,” Deal said in a statement. “This new location is a great illustration of how Georgia’s diverse offerings of business assets and strategic resources can help companies across a range of industries compete right here in our state.”

The Sandy Springs office will handle IT services for the company’s properties. CBS is a mass media company that creates and distributes industry-leading content across a variety of platforms to audiences around the world. The company’s operations span virtually every field of media and entertainment, including cable, publishing, radio, local TV, film, outdoor advertising, interactive and socially responsible media.

“The Sandy Springs/Perimeter Chamber of Commerce is very excited that CBS has chosen our community for its latest location. Sandy Springs provides excellent rail transportation, proximity to state of the art healthcare, and excellent quality of life for corporate employees,” Sandy Springs/Perimeter Chamber of Commerce President Tom Mahaffey said in a statement. “The city of Sandy Springs and the chamber are looking forward to partnering with CBS as they continue their expansion into the region.”
