GE ramp­ing up pres­ence at new HQ

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

Gen­eral Elec­tric is ramp­ing up its pres­ence at its new cor­po­rate head­quar­ters in Bos­ton and has un­veiled a newdig­i­tal hub in Rhode Is­land as it pre­pares to leave its Con­necti­cut home of the last 42 years. The com­pany now has about 200 work­ers in Mas­sachusetts, more than 80 per­cent of whom are trans­plants from Con­necti­cut. They in­clude CEO and Chair­man Jeff Im­melt, who has worked from a tem­po­rary of­fice in Bos­ton since late Au­gust. GE plans to empty its head­quar­ters in Fair­field, Con­necti­cut, by the end of the month af­ter oc­cu­py­ing it since 1974. The sprawl­ing 68-acre cam­pus is up for sale. Many of those not mi­grat­ing to Bos­ton have been shift­ing to an­other Con­necti­cut of­fice in Nor­walk.
