"Albuquerque is a special place. Thank you for making us feel welcome."
- John Erwin, CEO of Carenet Healthcare

Carenet Healthcare Services, based in San Antonio, provides third party healthcare support to private and public institutions, nationwide.

In April 2018, Carenet Healthcare announced they will invest $3 million in a downtown Albuquerque location and create up to 244 new jobs. Carenet Healthcare will be supported by New Mexico's closing fund, LEDA, and Job Training Incentive Program, JTIP. New jobs in downtown Albuquerque will bring economic activity to small businesses and new development.

John Erwin, CEO of Carenet Healthcare, said the company is excited to expand their operations in New Mexico and is thankful for the support. The company will sign a ten year lease on their building.


"We're not Boeing, we're not Amazon, but you treated us like we were."
- Richard Heard, president of 2NDGEAR's parent company Insight Investments

2NDGEAR, based in California, is a leading provider of certified refurbished IT equipment for educational systems. They have served thousands of businesses and educational institutions across the U.S.

In April 2018, 2NDGear announced they will create 100 new jobs in Albuquerque and will be investing up to $1 million in its New Mexico operations. 2NDGEAR will be pursuing JTIP funding. Richard Heard, president of 2NDGEAR's parent company Insight Investments, said New Mexico's hospitality and tax reforms helped his company decide to expand in Albuquerque. In the last two years, many cities were considered for their new expansion.

Their job site is now accepting applications for their new Meridian Business Park location.
