PENSACOLA, Florida -

Thousands of new jobs are coming to Pensacola and not just any jobs.

"Loan officers, mortgage processors, we have IT engineers, we have accountants, we have analysts, we have senior executives, we have everything," says CEO Cutler Dawson/

At least 1500 positions are being added but it could be more according to Dawson. "I expect it to be two thousand."

To house all those new employees the world's largest credit union plans to expand it's footprint in Pensacola with two more buildings, totaling more than 300 thousand square feet of space. "We've already begun. We have started the permitting right now and we expect our two new buildings to be completed by the end of 2015," says Dawson.

The construction on this latest expansion will start later this year but they are not done growing yet. By the year 2020 they hope to have a billion dollars invested and 10 thousand employees.

All of this is good news for the city of Pensacola and efforts to make the city more business friendly.
