Charles Schwab says it is committed to Omaha, Nebraska as a key center of operations as it continues to integrate TD Ameritrade.

Schwab says it has embarked on a series of in-person sessions with staff across the country who are beginning a hybrid work model, with the first session being in Omaha.

“Ameritrade has been an important part of the Omaha community for more than four decades, and we are as committed to the workforce here as they are to our clients,” Schwab chief executive officer Walt Bettinger said in a statement. “Omaha plays a critical role in our plans for the future, both as a hub for great talent and part of our strategy to accommodate growth as we work to serve the needs of our expanding client base.”

Schwab says it currently has more than 300 open roles in Omaha across both businesses, including for client service professionals, operations and technology. The open roles are part of recruitment efforts across the U.S. that include hiring in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida and Texas, Schwab says.

Schwab says it now has about 2,400 positions in Omaha, a nearly 20% increase from November 2019 when the TD Ameritrade acquisition was initially announced.

In December, Schwab said that it had taken on the naming rights of TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha. The 24,000-seat baseball stadium and entertainment complex will be renamed Charles Schwab Field Omaha effective this year, Schwab says.
