Bluefish Wireless set to announce up to 150 new local jobs

Zionsville-based Bluefish Wireless Management on Thursday will announce plans to expand and add as many as 150 jobs.

Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman is scheduled to be on hand for the announcement at the company’s 6100 W. 96th St. headquarters.

Earlier this month, the Zionsville Times Sentinel reported that the company was seeking tax abatement for an expansion that could add 150 jobs by 2013.

Zionsville was competing with Las Vegas, where Bluefish already has an operations center. Bluefish has about 90 employees in Zionsville.

Bluefish operates a Web-based service that manages an employer’s cell phones, smart phones, wireless Internet and other mobile devices. Bluefish serves a number of Fortune 500 companies, including Intel, Oracle and Ford Motor Co.

The company was founded in 2001 by Christian and Michael Browning II, the sons of local real estate developer Michael Browning.

Bluefish had revenue of $12.6 million in 2008, up 727 percent from 2005, according to Inc. magazine’s list of 500 fastest-growing private companies.

Last year, Bluefish launched a new venture, Mobi Wireless Management, which was spawned to serve smaller firms via the Web.  In September, Bluefish officials projected that Mobi could grow to $13 million in sales and a work force of 75 by the end of 2011.

  1. Why should I a home owner pay for this"car sharing" ????

  2. By the way, the right to work law is intended to prevent forced union membership, not as a way to keep workers in bondage as you make it sound, Italiano. If union leadership would spend all of their funding on the workers, who they are supposed to be representing, instead of trying to buy political favor and living lavish lifestyles as a result of the forced membership, this law would never had been necessary.

  3. Unions once served a noble purpose before greed and apathy took over. Now most unions are just as bad or even worse than the ills they sought to correct. I don't believe I have seen a positive comment posted by you. If you don't like the way things are done here, why do you live here? It would seem a more liberal environment like New York or California would suit you better?

  4. just to clear it up... Straight No Chaser is an a capella group that formed at IU. They've toured nationally typically doing a capella arangements of everything from Old Songbook Standards to current hits on the radio.

  5. This surprises you? Mayor Marine pulled the same crap whenhe levered the assets of the water co up by half a billion $$$ then he created his GRAFTER PROGRAM called REBUILDINDY. That program did not do anything for the Ratepayors Water Infrastructure Assets except encumber them and FORCE invitable higher water and sewer rates on Ratepayors to cover debt coverage on the dough he stole FROM THE PUBLIC TRUST. The guy is morally bankrupt to the average taxpayer and Ratepayor.
