A global company providing payment card industry, cybersecurity and compliance solutions to businesses is opening a call center in Brookhaven in Perimeter Summit, promising to create more than 500 jobs and invest $2 million in DeKalb County.
A Jan. 12 press release from Gov. Nathan Deal states that Sysnet Global Solutions, based in Dublin, Ireland, is opening the new call center after a “successful economic mission to Ireland.”
“By choosing Georgia for this call center, Sysnet will tap in to our world-class infrastructure network and generate new jobs for DeKalb County. Once again, a global leader has chosen to come to Georgia to be a part of our success,” Deal said in the release.
Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst said the city is looking forward forward to working with Sysnet Global Solutions.

Brookhaven ‘go Bragh!’”
