NAPERVILLE, IL – Dec. 9, 2013 – On Monday, Dec. 9, Nicor Gas will hold an open house at the recently renovated Crestwood regional office to celebrate the dedication of the Nicor Gas Energy Efficiency Program’s Marketing and Outreach Center.

Eleven new Illinois jobs were created to support the center, including a manager and 10 account representatives who will engage with customers by phone, at community events and in meetings. Several community partners, including Moraine Valley College, assisted Nicor Gas in recruiting candidates for the positions.

The total renovations to the Crestwood regional office include the addition of 15 new workstations and floor-to-ceiling renovation of the office area. The facility will be shared with existing Nicor Gas regional office employees.
