A step back for N.C. DB Global Technology unit in Cary will not expand
Last September DB Global Technology unit in Cary was said to have agreed to invest another $9 million in the Cary campus before the end of 2016. But John Cryan, co-chief executive officer of the bank, said: "We take our commitment to building inclusive work environments seriously.
"We're proud of our operations and employees in Cary and regret that as a result of this legislation we are unwilling to include North Carolina in our U.S. expansion plans for now. We very much hope that we can re-visit our plans to grow this location in the near future."
Deutsche would have been in line for an incentive package worth $3.38m over 12 years if it reached hiring goals.
DB Global Technology unit was created in 2009 to increase efficiencies in development and maintenance of the bank's software developments. ■
