Jobs include business development, logistic specialists, sales and marketing, finance and distribution with average annual salaries of $50,000 per year.

Regulus Global’s clients include a broad range of end users and distributors in more than 80 countries.

They have worked with more than 600 manufacturers in the U.S. and abroad.

“This is a significant local company that is engaged in global trade,” said Warren D. Harris, director of Virginia Beach Economic Development. “The location in Virginia Beach has allowed them to make important Department of Defense contacts and has stimulated growth in diverse markets. We are extremely pleased they are making a commitment to remain in Virginia Beach.”

Regulus Global CEO Will Somerindyke stated that “the willingness of the City of Virginia Beach to support our growth efforts through the EDIP was a factor in making our final decision to remain in Virginia Beach. We look forward to working with the City not only for this transaction but to also support our significant employee growth projections for the next 3-5 years.”

The Virginia Beach Economic Development Authority has approved an Economic Development Investment Program grant in the amount of $75,000 based on the capital investment of $3.45 million and the number of jobs to be created with this expansion.
