»Berlin has prevailed against contestants such as Barcelona and Istanbul in the location competition for the new Business Service Center for Human Resources of the E.ON SE. It was decisive for us that the new location would attract and bind highly qualified professionals. Berlin convinced us in the European comparison because the city is functioning as a hub between our international locations. Here we found a modern location in a central location for our almost 300 employees. We have received all possible support by Berlin’s politics and Berlin’s business promotion in the siting process.«Johannes Brinkkötter, Member of the Management Board, E.ON Business Services GmbH
