It’s the best news that Redmond could receive: a big cellular company is moving into the T-Mobile building and bringing jobs with it.  Wednesday, at the Redmond Chamber of Commerce, Central Oregon officials gathered to hear the announcement by Consumer Cellular CEO John Marick, that they are putting the finishing touches on leasing the T-Mobile building.  Marick says opening a new branch of their Portland company in Redmond was a natural progression:  "You know really, it was the comfort level with the community and the people. As you know, we're from Oregon and we spend a lot of time here in Central Oregon.  And the employees that we have are really what makes our company, and so we needed a place that we felt that we could continue to grow and have the quality of employees that are going to help us take care of our customers the way we want to. And in talking to all the people in Central Oregon, and the folks that are currently at T-Mobile, we felt that this is a great pace to be."  Marick says they already held a meeting with the current T-Mobile employees,  telling them what was happening, and they plan additional meetings with them over the next several days about future employment.  They plan to have the new facility open by August first, with up to 75 workers, and over the course of several years, eventually employ about 650.
