Former California resident finds amazing resources back in Lincoln

Travis Van Dyke studied economics at Nebraska Wesleyan University and then worked for Pacific Life, which relocated him to Orange County, California. When he had a chance to move back to Lincoln, he did.

An opportunity surfaced with ReSource Pro, which helps insurance companies optimize their operations for increased productivity and performance via a set of services, including data analytics. The New York-based company had just opened a service delivery center in Lincoln, and the chance to grow with this company was too good for him to pass up.

“It used to be common to graduate from a school in Lincoln then move away for the big-city job,” Van Dyke said. “I’ve been to the big city and I can tell you that there are great jobs at amazing companies right here, in Lincoln. Lincoln now offers all the amenities other cities do but at a lower cost – and lower stress. It’s also a great place to start a family, get to know your neighbors and find creative ways to improve your community.”

Van Dyke is proud that ReSource Pro has selected Lincoln for its first onshore service delivery center. The primary goal was finding a city with the right culture, work ethic and a young population driven to excel. “Lincoln,” he said “had everything the company wanted - Innovation Campus, investments in the Railyard and the Pinnacle Bank Arena are enormous draws for young professionals.”

Former Atlanta resident findsamazing Opportunities

As an Atlanta, Georgia, resident who found herself in Lincoln, AshLea Allberry wanted to get plugged into her new community. The Young Professionals Group (YPG) was her way of doing just that. Allberry moved to Lincoln from Atlanta for a job with Nanonation – a technology company that makes digital signage, kiosks and other interactive solutions. She immediately joined YPG, which led her to involvement in other organizations as well. One of them is Rise Lincoln, an organization that brings 200 women in business together once a month.

“I’ve always been amazed that there are so many opportunities for young people in Lincoln,” she said. “Lincoln does a really good job of allowing young people to create things.” Allberry has found success in Lincoln. Not only has Nanonation had the most growth in the last three years than it ever has, Allberry has found her spot in Lincoln’s business community. “I can’t imagine leaving,” she said.

Lincoln resident set on leaving finds there's no place like home

Keith Peterson considered moving to a much larger city after graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. “I looked into moving to Chicago or New York and probably would have if I didn’t receive such a great opportunity from Tom Smith at Smith Hayes to get into business,” he said. Peterson started with an internship at Smith Hayes in 2011 and was then hired as a financial adviser in 2012. Soon after getting settled into his career he fell more in love with the city and “can’t imagine ever leaving at this point,” he said.

With the emergence of the Haymarket, Pinnacle Bank Arena, the Railyard, along with the growth in startup businesses, “it shows people that Lincoln is willing to evolve to become a cool city and not just a boring college town.” Peterson commented.

Lincoln is a fantastic place for young professionals because of the job opportunities available, “The city is beaming with energy and city leaders actually listen to input from young professionals,” he said. Peterson is on the council of the Lincoln Young Professionals Group and continues to ensure young professionals have a voice in Lincoln on major decisions and that the young professionals are looked upon for guidance on where, and how the progressive city moves forward.With our low cost of living, you are given the freedom to live in a spacious place without breaking the bank.
