Nestlé celebrated the grand opening of its new U.S. headquarters in Arlington, Va.
The new location in the Rosslyn neighborhood is home to Nestlé USA’s corporate functions, its beverage, baking and global foods divisions, as well as its e-business team and Center for Marketing Excellence. Gerber Products Co., Nestlé USA’s sister company, will relocate to the same building next year, bringing the total number of Nestlé employees to around 900.
“Moving our headquarters across the country is a true catalyst for transforming our business as we create a new Nestlé,” says Steve Presley, chairman and CEO. “Today is about more than our building, it’s also about our biggest asset—our people. 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 USA’s headquarters relocated from Glendale, Calif.
