red-venturesSouth Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will be in Lancaster County later this week for the groundbreaking of high-tech corporate campus off U.S. 521.

Internet marketing firm Red Ventures moved its corporate headquarters from Charlotte to South Carolina in October 2009. Plans then called for a $20 million investment in Lancaster County with promises of bringing 1,000 new jobs in the next five to seven years.

Today, the company employs more than 1,200 employees spread across four offices in the Corporate Center in Indian Land.

Back in 2009, S.C. Governor Mark Sanford arrived in Indian Land for the company’s first groundbreaking ceremony. There, Red Ventures CEO Ric Elias told Sanford and local reporters that he was one of the 150 passengers on board US Airways flight 1549 that in January 2009 crash landed in the Hudson River in New York City.
