The Frisco Chamber of Commerce announced today HCL Technologies has become the first Trustee-Level partner, which is a new level of membership now open at the chamber.

Unlike other membership levels at the chamber, a Trustee-Level membership will have a major focus on giving back to the business community through involvement in the chamber's committees and community efforts.

HCL Technologies, for instance, will support the International Business Council and the chamber's governmental affairs and education efforts through its membership.

"It's all about giving forward, if you will, paying it forward to those that are going to be coming in, those who have helped make the community a great place and keep the growth going," said Tony Felker, Frisco Chamber of Commerce president.

HCL Technologies is a global information technology, or IT, services company headquartered in India with operations in 32 separate countries. HCL opened an office in Frisco in 2015, and that office now holds 560 employees.

"I am very happy to say that Frisco has been the fastest-growing center for HCL anywhere in the world," said C. Vijayakumar, HCL Technologies president and CEO. "There's already a demand for more and more people to work out of this center."
