Hasbro to add up to 500 jobs in Providence

The build-out of the Knowledge District got a potent shot in the arm today as executives from Hasbro announced that they are relocating their U.S. Sales & Marketing Headquarters to Providence.  A tremendous sense of energy was evident as Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner made the big announcement before a standing room only crowd. The legacy company will put its stake in the ground at 15 LaSalle Square, directly across from the RI Convention Center.  Roughly 500 jobs paying an average annual wage of $80,000 will be created in the new location.  The Chamber salutes Hasbro and our elected officials for bringing the deal to closure! Reimagine. Reinvent. Reignite.

Hasbro and 38 Studios will sit side by side in the Knowledge District.
