Wednesday, we got our answer. GE announced that the company is moving its global headquarters from Connecticut to Boston, bringing about 800 jobs to the region.
- "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.
