Shawnee, Kansas (March 26, 2018) – The Shawnee Economic Development Council (SEDC) announced ServiceMaster DSI will relocate the headquarters for the company’s national large loss division ServiceMaster Recovery Management (SRM) to Shawnee in April 2018. In addition, it will also be the regional headquarters for DSI which will serve Missouri and Kansas.
The offices will be located at 8450 Cole Parkway in Shawnee and will include the Executive Management and Administrative support staff of the company’s locations nationwide. ServiceMaster will initially transfer 100 jobs and plans to hire an additional 100 new employees in the future with an average salary of $67,000.
“DSI is extremely excited to move to the great City of Shawnee, Kansas,” said CEO Kim Brooks. “We have spent nearly two years looking for the right fit. We needed a location that was close to a major interstate to ensure speedy delivery of service. We needed a facility which enables us to consolidate other smaller locations putting everyone under one roof with room to grow. We needed a City partner who was business friendly and willing to help make us part of the community. At long last we have now found what we were looking for with the City of Shawnee. This will be our new home for a long time to come and we can’t wait to get started.”
ServiceMaster DSI’s decision to move to Shawnee, Kansas, has generated a positive response across the state. “It is great when a national company such as ServiceMaster evaluates its options and chooses Kansas for a division headquarters,” said Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D. “Kansas has a strong tradition of helping our fellow Americans when disaster strikes. We are excited to be chosen by ServiceMaster and look forward to their continued success.”
Shawnee City officials are also pleased with this news. “We are excited that ServiceMaster DSI decided to make Shawnee its new home,” said Mayor Michelle Distler. “They will be a great fit in our community and we look forward to the new employees who will become part of our workforce.”
