Genpact, a global firm that provides digital professional services, has signed a lease to occupy 37,000 square feet at Capital Plaza in Jacksonville and intends to hire 200 people in the first year and then expand further.

Spokeswoman Gail Marold said today Genpact plans to open the center with its first training class July 24.

Genpact will first provide processing, underwriting, and closing services for residential mortgage loans for large financial services clients.

“We chose Jacksonville because it is an excellent market for financial services talent in the Southeast and has an extremely favorable business climate,” Marold said in a statement.
