General Electric’s announcement last year that it would move its world headquarters to Boston’s Seaport District was nothing short of a game-changer in cementing the city’s status as an international center of innovation. Lured by the startup culture and access to human capital and world-class educational institutions, the global Fortune 500 giant will open its new headquarters campus in 2018 and house 800 employees.
Join CREW Boston for the March luncheon program with Ann Klee, VP of GE’s Global Environment, Health & Safety Group and head of Boston Development and Operations. Ms. Klee has spearheaded the headquarters relocation and will share the “story behind the story” of one of the most significant real estate transactions in Boston’s history. “We want our campus to be a global epicenter of innovation, a place to foster relationships among our employees and the greater community,” said Ms. Klee when plans for the campus were first unveiled in August.
Ms. Klee also heads up the GE Foundation, which has committed to donate $50 million to philanthropic causes in the state, much of which will benefit the city’s public school system.
