  • "General Electric Co., one of the most storied names in corporate America, will relocate its global headquarters to Boston, according to people familiar with the process. Company executives called the governor and mayor separately Wednesday morning, as well as their staffs, the people said. An announcement from GE could come later Wednesday. The decision marks the end of a high-stakes competition to woo GE from its longtime campus in suburban Connecticut, besting New York, Providence, and other cities, and further solidifies the region’s reputation as a magnet for innovation."
