Governor John Bel Edwards is congratulating CGI on its growth.

The Governor stopped by the company in Lafayette to show his appreciation in person.

“We’re celebrating a doubling of the number of jobs in the Lafayette area because of CGI’s presence and investment here and what a critical partnership between the university and the private sector,” said the Governor.

The company’s partnership with UL has helped provide opportunities for workers and shows how important education is to the state, according to Edwards.
