Congressman David Schweikert welcomed Silicon Valley Bank to Arizona yesterday at a press conference announcing their expansion. Silicon Valley Bank will bring hundreds of well-paying, financial sector jobs to the state over the next few years, including a new branch in Tempe:
"I am thrilled that Silicon Valley Bank is coming to Arizona. Their decision to expand here is reflective of our high quality workforce and the fact that our state is a great place to live and create jobs," said Rep. Schweikert.
"Arizona is open for business, and Silicon Valley Bank is exactly the type of business we desperately want here."
