Germany last September to convince the company’s board and
Vice President, Jeff Shafer, that Cleveland was a better location

“We are excited to locate our North America headquarters in
Northeast Ohio and with the continued help and support of Team NEO,
we are sure to welcome success and opportunities across the various
regions,” Shafer said. He also met with Team NEO in Cleveland
