I had a chat this weekend with a manager over at ExxonMobil. She is Columbian and was transferred here to help roll out a new function. ExxonMobil now has 1,000 people working in Moncton. One of the top five largest firms in the world have one of their three global back offices in Moncton. The others are in Curitiba, Brazil and I think Thailand.
That’s the power of economic development.
