Nashville, Tenn.—Accenture recently opened a new technology delivery center in Nashville. The facility is Accenture’s second Tennessee location, having already established a Knoxville office in 2013.

Accenture’s team in Nashville will start with an initial staff of 25 people and plans to grow to 250 hires or more. The company seeks to attract future employees from the area’s growing pool of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) talent, including U.S. military veterans. Currently, 25 percent of Accenture’s Nashville employees are military veterans.
