“Our decision to expand into Mobile highlights the tremendous technology talent that exists in this vibrant community,” said Monty Hamilton, CEO at Rural Sourcing. “It’s an honor to be among the early investors and catalysts for the growth in Mobile’s digital economy. We are equally excited to be an integral part of the city leaders’ vision for the technology corridor in downtown.”
“We are grateful to Rural Sourcing for making this investment in downtown Mobile, and we appreciate Monty Hamilton and his team for their confidence in our city,” said Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson. “This project is significant because of our ongoing effort to transform St. Louis Street into a technology and innovation corridor. The new jobs that RSI is creating will spur additional investment and economic activity, helping us to continue building momentum in downtown Mobile.”
