SOUTH CAROLINA – December 5, 2019 – 98 Ventures, an executive management services company, today announced plans to expand operations in Greenville County, South Carolina, creating 150 new jobs.

To accommodate this expansion and be positioned for future growth, 98 Ventures will relocate to the Poe West development in the Village of West Greenville in January of 2020, allowing the company and its affiliates to continue to provide clients with a high level of service. The company’s expansion includes a more than $600,000 building renovation investment.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for the entire 98 Ventures family, and we look forward to our continued growth as well as providing the very best for our partners, clients and team members,” stated 98 Ventures President Scott Moore. “I am confident that our relocation to Poe West will propel our team to new heights, as well as set us up for great success moving forward. We are honored to play a critical role in the revitalization of the West Village and are ecstatic to begin work in our new space.”

98 Ventures specializes in human resources, accounting, risk management, communications, application development, information technology, recruiting, legal, data analysis, operations support, and training and development. As a result of recent strategic company growth, 98 Ventures actively supports three Greenville-based affiliate logistics organizations: UST, UST Select and Equip Fulfillment.

“It’s always a great day in South Carolina when an existing company has great success in our state and chooses to expand,” said South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster. “We’re excited for the 150 new jobs 98 ventures is creating with this expansion and we’re eager to see this company continue to grow in Greenville County.”

“This announcement is a terrific win for Greenville County. When a company like 98 Ventures thrives within our borders and decides to expand, it’s a testament to the business-friendly environment South Carolina offers,” added South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.

"Butch" Kirven. “98 Ventures has found the right formula for success, including its location in our dynamic community and offering expert professionally-tailored services across a broad spectrum of client needs, helping other companies to grow and prosper. County Council could not be more pleased."

“In 2016, when 98 Ventures (then UST Logistical Systems) announced their move to Greenville, it was a great day for our city. Now, just a few short years later, 98 Ventures is announcing a new round of expansion, and we couldn’t be prouder of their growth, success and commitment to making Greenville a better place to live and work. 98 Ventures’ ability to bring new products and services to the logistics industry highlights the quality workforce and team environment that companies can build when they locate in Greenville.
