Austin Business Journal

Harte Hanks, a San Antonio-based direct marketing firm, plans to add 250 jobs to its workforce of 800 at its Austin call center office on Wells Branch Parkway


That expansion will come as Harte Hanks (NYSE: HHS) adds client programs and shifts toward seasonal campaigns that require more personnel


Craig Johnston, the company's director of operations, couldn't disclose the names of Harte Hanks clients but said they're typically Fortune 100 companies in industries such as electronics, 


cellphones, health care logistics and higher education. He said none of the company's clients are headquartered in Austin but many of them have some form of operations and staffing in the 


area


Johnston said the company is will likely have to take more space in its current office building just east of the MoPac Expressway if it grows its workforce by more than 25 percent. He said 


there are currently no plans for a second Harte Hanks location in Austin, but that continued growth in 2015 and beyond could make such a move necessary
