Providian Financial Corp. said it will open a customer service center in Salt Lake City in April and expand its work force there from an initial 50 people to at least 400 by yearend.

The San Francisco-based credit card issuer will thus be contributing to a boom in financial services employment in Utah, where many bank and nonbank companies have consumer finance and industrial bank subsidiaries.
