Amherst, NY (WBEN) A major announcement comes Wednesday as Strategic Financial Services will open a contact center in Amherst. 1,500 jobs will be created.

"We really fell for Amherst and the Buffalo area, we really love the people and the pride they have in their city and jobs and their work force, and it was a perfect culture fit for our company," says CEO Ryan Sasson. Strategic Financial Services tries to help customers with too much credit card debt find solutions to get out of debt without declaring bankruptcy.

Sasson says 1,500 jobs will be created over the next five years. Recruiting has begun, with VP of operations Andy Pine hailing from Western New York. Plans are to open the permanent facility in the fall.
