A pharmacy benefits manager plans to hire 205 people within two years at a hub it's building in Jeffersonville, state economic development officials said Tuesday.

Lisle, Ill.-based Catamaran Corp. has committed to hiring 104 full-time, permanent employees next year and a total of 205 by 2015. The jobs paying an average of nearly $24 per hour will include pharmacists, technicians, call-center employees and others.

Wendy Dant Chesser, president and chief executive of One Southern Indiana, the chamber of commerce for Clark and Floyd counties, told The Courier-Journal that the state has approved the company for up to $2.5 million in performance-based tax incentives over the next 10 years and $100,000 for job training.

Catamaran plans to have its new building in the River Ridge Commerce Center open in November.
