SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio and Bexar County gained 4,750 new jobs in 2014 — roughly 750 more than were initially projected for the area.

Local leaders said more than 1,500 of those new jobs were secured with the help of the City of San Antonio's business retention & expansion program, which focuses on employers in key industry clusters.

More than two dozen companies chose to move to or expand in the San Antonio area in 2014.

About 60 percent of the new jobs the San Antonio region gained in 2014 were from the business services sector, which includes shared-services operations, manufacturing and distribution.

San Antonio Economic Development Foundation officials are projecting another 4,000 new jobs for the region in 2015.

In New Braunfels, there is similar optimism. That community, part of the San Antonio metropolitan statistical area, gained more than 1,900 new jobs in 2014.

Three companies — IBEX Global, CBE Cos. and Nexus Medical Consulting — were responsible for roughly 1,000 of the new jobs.
