Amid its $16.6 billion acquisition by Nokia, Alcatel-Lucent is preparing to move into a new regional headquarters building that will help streamline its operations.
“Even in the climate of a merger with us, where there’s a certain amount of uncertainty, the timing has been great,” said Tim Krause, chief marketing officer. “Employees are really excited. It creates sense of community and identity for the employees.”
