“Washington, DC is an important global crossroads for the diverse set of stakeholders who work together towards solving water challenges around the world,” said Patrick Decker, president and CEO of Xylem. “By locating our global headquarters here, we place ourselves right where the water sector is most engaged.”
Decker and a number of senior Xylem leaders will be based in the new headquarters.
“We’ll be able to reduce complexity, with a lean headquarters, at the same time as we build closer relationships with all those in the global water community working to solve the biggest challenges, and promote global water sustainability,” said Decker.
Xylem’s new headquarters will be co-located with the Reservoir Center for Water Solutions, a hub for multi-party, water-focused stakeholder collaboration, in the historic Navy Yard district along the Anacostia River. The Reservoir Center for Water Solutions is expected to open in June.
