Global Commerce & Services, a leader in information technology services, has recently graduated from the Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) Business Innovation Center located the newly rebranded Fairfield just outside of New Orleans.
The Center is the business incubator program that helped Global Commerce & Services founder Joaneane Smith grow her company. According to JEDCO, the award-winning company has experienced growth in revenue and employment for four years in a row.
“JEDCO has definitely been fundamental to the early stages of my company,” Smith says. “They’ve always been there to offer assistance and the feedback was always constructive. JEDCO understands that small businesses are the lifeblood of a successful economy.That is why supporting my company and helping us to grow, create jobs and crack new markets has been such a major part of JEDCO’s mission over the last three years.”
Global Commerce & Services services clients, both locally and on a national level, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Navy, Department of Army, the Business Transformation Agency and the Defense Information Systems Agency. The company will remain in Jefferson Parish as they continue to grow. “JEDCO is proud of the accomplishments Joaneane and her team have achieved while taking advantage of our small business resources,” says JEDCO Executive Director Jerry Bologna. “Global Commerce & Services is an exceptional company with an exciting future. We look forward to watching Joaneane and her team continue to grow the business in Jefferson Parish.”
The JEDCO headquarters is situated on the mostly undeveloped Churchill Technology and Business Park-owned land, which spans 500 acres.
