Charlotte-based Jacobsen offers exciting career opportunities

Charlotte, N.C. (August 15, 2013) - Jacobsen, a Textron (NYSE: TXT) Company, has become a hot target for recent college graduates looking for exciting career opportunities.

Jacobsen manufactures commercial-grade mowers and utility vehicles for golf courses and sports fields around the world. Jacobsen machines are known for their cutting edge technology and can be found on golf courses like Pebble Beach and the home field of the Texas Rangers Major League Baseball team.

Since 1921, Jacobsen turf products have been known for their superior quality and cutting performance. Jacobsen is also an environmental leader and is the only turf equipment manufacturer to offer both hybrid and all-electric power sources in its machines.

"Jacobsen is a very exciting and dynamic place to work," said Amy Leonardi, Marketing Specialist and new addition to the Jacobsen team. "What I like most about Jacobsen is the culture. We're a very close-knit group that works together to do great things."

The company is part of Textron, one of the world's best-known multi-industry companies with brands such as a Bell Helicopter, Cessna Aircraft and E-Z-GO golf cars.

As part of Textron, Jacobsen employees have the opportunity to get high exposure to other cutting edge industries like aerospace, defence, automotive and industrial. Textron's Leadership Development Program (LDP) rotates recent grads through work assignments at several different Textron business units over the course of two years.

"The LDP program has been a catalyst for personal and professional growth, and an ever-present opportunity to steer my career," said Meagan A. Villanueva, Jacobsen Engineer and LDP program member. "My accomplishments thus far have been made possible by the consistent support that I have found throughout Textron and Jacobsen. Most importantly, Jacobsen's culture allowed me to take risks and push my own limitations."

Jacobsen also puts a priority on career development and offers programs and resources that teach, train, and develop leaders that will shape the vision of the company moving forward.

"At Jacobsen, we believe in developing tomorrow's leaders today," said Nina Stasinopoulos, VP of Human Resources for Jacobsen.
