Corporate Headquarters

The Milwaukee Region has more corporate headquarters than most cities its size. Milwaukee is home to 14 Fortune 1,000 corporations, ranking ninth per capita, ahead of cities like San Francisco, Dallas, Charlotte, Pittsburgh, Denver and Seattle. S.C. Johnson in Racine is also on the Forbes 500 largest privately held companies are also located in the Milwaukee Region.

These enterprises span the entire spectrum of business – manufacturing, food and consumer goods, medical equipment, financial institutions and service firms. Our central location, affordable living costs, easy access to international transportation, premier cultural attractions and strong Midwest work ethic make the Milwaukee Region an ideal hub for worldwide networks.

And while our perspective is global, the networking opportunities we offer are much closer to home. The region’s manageable size makes it easy to see the people you want to see and close the deals you need to close.
