Nielsen has completed its relocation of about 500 employees from Covington, Ky. to downtown Cincinnati.
The global market research company moved into the Chiquita Center at 250 E. Fifth St. The Business Courier broke the story about Nielsen’s plans to move across the Ohio River from the RiverCenter complex in September.
“The Cincinnati area is strategically important to Nielsen,” Mitchell Habib, chief operating officer of Nielsen (NYSE: NLSN), said in a news release. “Greater Cincinnati is a world class business marketplace, offering tremendous opportunity and a great workforce. It’s why Nielsen has enjoyed a presence here for 25 years. Nielsen is thrilled to remain in the Cincinnati area and we look forward to serving some of our major clients from our new downtown location.”
There is no update on Nielsen’s plans to get the company’s name attached to the building at this time, according to the company. Nielsen has asked the city to put its name on the Chiquita Center’s east facade.
The new Nielsen office is less than two miles from its previous location.
Nielsen, headquartered in New York and Diemen, the Netherlands, has about 35,000 employees and operates in 100 countries.
