Speculation mounts over Dole corporate office move
One of the world's most well-known fresh produce companies may be scoping out opportunities to develop a new office in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Earlier this week the Charlotte Observer reported that Dole Food Company had filed a construction permit for the city's 200 South Tryon skyscraper under the name "Dole Headquarters".
The company currently lists its head office as Westlake Village, California, and William Goldfield told the publication "nothing is currently planned" when asked about a potential move to uptown Charlotte.
The story added Goldfields clarifications that Dole was incorporated in North Carolina with sales and marketing units in Kannapolis, which lies northeast of the city.
"Recently the company has moved some additional functions and personnel, including members of the C-suite, to the greater Charlotte area," Goldfield was quoted as saying.
At the time of writing, Dole had job listings on its website for roles in Charlotte, including 'Sr. Manager, Treasury', 'Sr. Manager, Financial Reporting' and 'Sr. Financial Analyst'.
