Missouri’s governor will travel to Columbia this morning to tour one of Columbia and Boone County’s largest employers.
Governor Mike Parson will tour a Veterans United (VU) facility in Columbia and will meet with company leaders. Veterans United is the nation’s top VA lender and has been one of the fastest-growing companies in mid-Missouri. VU’s website says more veteran homebuyers choose Veterans United than any other VA lender.
The latest statistics from Regional Economic Development Incorporated (REDI) list VU as the third-largest employer in Columbia/Boone County, behind the University of Missouri and MU Health Care and Clinics.
