Chicago also offers a deep pool of financial services talent we can draw upon to help serve our customers in the area and across the country,” GE Capital, Americas President and CEO Dan Henson said.

He continued,“We have a number of existing operations in and around the City, including the headquarters of our Commercial Distribution Finance and GE Antares Capital.

I commend and thank GE Capital for recognizing the opportunity for growth and success in our great city,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said.
