Regional Trade & Economic Growth

Economic Consulting

Strong competition extracts the highest possible performance from teams, organizations, and regional economies alike. Just as companies compete to maximize value for shareholders, states and regions compete to capture business investment, develop new industries, encourage innovation and drive job creation to increase the quality of life for citizens and provide a platform for continued economic strength.

This experience includes the design of a full array of integrated economic development solutions such as site selection, incentive negotiations, strategic plan development and execution, and Brownfield and Greenfield development plans.
