A mortgage servicing company says it will expand its North Carolina operation by adding about 1,000 call center and loan servicing jobs.

The company and Gov. Beverly Perdue announced Tuesday that Zenta Mortgage Services will expand its Charlotte operation over the next five years. In return, the company could collect up to $8.6 million in taxpayer incentives if it meets the job-creation targets and keeps them for nine years.

The financial services outsourcing company plans to begin hiring next month for jobs paying nearly $48,000 a year.

Zenta now employs about 260 workers in Charlotte.

The New York City-based company operates call centers and other service centers in Philadelphia, Dallas, Los Angeles, London, and in Mumbai and Chennai, India.
