Provalus Opens New Technology Innovation Center in Historic Tahlequah, Oklahoma

Provalus’ Newest Operation Will Bring Over 200 New Tech Jobs to Cherokee County

Provalus announces the opening of its fourth technology innovation center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, the capitol city of the Cherokee Nation and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians. As the solutions & managed services brand of Optomi Professional Services, Provalus will bring new jobs to the area in the form of technology and support positions. The project is projected to have a multi-million dollar economic impact on the local community over the next five years.

Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. commented, “Provalus is focused on bringing jobs and opportunities to rural America and restoring downtown infrastructure, the same principles we value so greatly here at the Cherokee Nation. It’s why we knew early on we had to ensure Provalus selected Tahlequah, our capital city, as their newest location. To be a valuable partner the Cherokee Nation is purchasing the 12,000 square-foot Foundry building downtown and leasing it back to the Tahlequah Development Authority for Provalus’ use on a sustainable basis. We believe Provalus and this investment is good for Tahlequah, the region and our citizens. We look forward to seeing the many ways our capital city will prosper from this investment.”

Laura Chevalier, President of Provalus commented, “Oklahoma and the city of Tahlequah have really embraced technology and recognize what that can mean for creating a skilled population in the region. Between the local talent, students graduating from the career tech center programs and NSU, we feel as though we have a community and talent pool that recognize the career path and opportunity within the tech field.”

The entire Provalus team is grateful for the collaboration and hard work to secure the relationship with this community located in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. When addressing why Provalus chose Tahlequah, Oklahoma, Provalus Vice President of Facilities, Will Ruzic said, “Tahlequah stood out because of the people. When we experienced just how strong the partnership is between all of the entities here, we just knew this would be a community we could call home. Our business is about collaboration and partnership and innovation. All of the attributes that make our business successful are present here. We’re looking forward to partnering with the people of Tahlequah to influence revitalization in this community.”
