Nestlé opens new US headquarters
Nestlé has officially opened its new US headquarters in Virginia with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and culinary festival – the Nestlé Good Life Fest.
The new location in Arlington, in the Rosslyn neighborhood is home to Nestlé USA’s corporate functions, its Beverage, Baking & Global Foods divisions, as well as its eBusiness team and Center for Marketing Excellence.
Gerber Products Company, Nestlé USA’s sister company, will relocate to the same building next year, bringing the total number of Nestlé employees there to around 900.
Commenting on the move, Steve Presley, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé USA, said: “Moving our headquarters across the country is a true catalyst for transforming our business as we create a new Nestlé.
“We’re celebrating our drive to create a culture that embraces the speed, courage, agility and collaboration necessary to win in the marketplace. And relocating here to Arlington helps to fuel that drive.”
Originally announced in January 2017, Nestlé’s relocation came to fruition through collaboration with state and local government officials.
