FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Deutsche Bank (XETRA: DBKGn.DE / NYSE: DB) announced today that it will
freeze plans to create 250 new jobs at its Cary, North Carolina,
The Bank’s decision is due to state-wide legislation enacted in North
Carolina on March 23 that invalidated existing protections of the rights
of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender fellow citizens in some
municipalities and prevents municipalities from adopting such
protections in the future.
John Cryan, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche 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 US expansion plans for now. We very much hope that we can re-visit
our plans to grow this location in the near future.”
Deutsche Bank currently employs approximately 900 people at its software
application development center in Cary and is committed to sustaining
that existing presence.
On 22 September 2015, Deutsche Bank confirmed plans to add 250 jobs in
Cary through 2017.
