Feld Entertainment adding more jobs in Manatee County

It is a place where dreams, become reality -- where Disney is put on ice and where Ringling creates the "Greatest Show on Earth."

"It centralizes everything. It gets everything under one room. It is one huge roof to work under," said Henry Cross, senior director of operations for Monster Jam.

The company in charge of the magic, Feld Entertainment, is making room for more.  It is moving its motorsports division from Chicago to Manatee County. That means show like "Monster Jam", "Monster Energy Supercross", "Amsoil Arenacross", and "Nuclear Cowboyz", will be thought up, designed and produced, before hitting the road.

"We can have our body shop, our mechanics, and our parts. Everything under one roof so it is one-stop shop," Cross explained.

Along with the move, 200 additional jobs will be coming to the area over the next five years.

Each year, about 40-plus jobs will be created until the move is finished.

"The workforce around this area is great for us to pull talented employees from," said Casey Rodgers, vice president of financial and strategic planning for Feld.

At least 95-percent of Feld's revenue comes from outside the state of Florida and 40-percent comes from outside the U.S.

"We are bringing all that money back here to Manatee County and we are bringing that in as additional economic impact," Rodgers proclaimed.

It could mean even bigger things for the area.  As Feld's magic continues to grow, so will its need for future employees.

"I am looking for employees today. I need to hire about 20 more people before the end of the year. If you are looking for a job, come see me," Cross added.
