Billionaire investor Warren Buffett joined in a ceremony Monday morning opening a new customer service center for the Geico insurance company in suburban Indianapolis.
Gov. Mike Pence also took part in the ribbon-cutting ceremony with Buffett at the center in Carmel. Geico announced plans for the service center in March, saying it could have up to 1,200 workers in the next few years.
Geico is among numerous businesses owned by Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway holding company.
Geico said those working at the Carmel service center would include agents, trainers, supervisors and support staff.
State officials say the office opened in April and has about 250 workers.
