Tuesday, February 16, 2016
The Greater Richmond Partnership was listed among “America’s Leading EDCs” by Global Trade magazine in its February/March 2016 issue. The Partnership was named along with 17 other groups which span local, regional and state organizations.
“During our 21 years, more than 465 companies have been assisted and $10.8 billion in capital invested,” said Barry Matherly, President/CEO of the Partnership. “We pride ourselves in acquiring top quality staff and I’m proud of the team who work tirelessly on behalf of the region. Over the last few years, we’ve changed our business attraction program to add more innovative elements.”
Global Trade magazine focuses content on domestic and global expansion processes, logistics efficiencies, strategic location, information technology and intelligent banking solutions for U.S. manufacturers that export and their logistics partners. Its 76,000 circulation targets corporate executives and decision makers in logistics and trade companies, including those who determine site selection.
In April 2015, the Partnership was honored by Site Selection magazine as a ‘Top 10 Economic Development Group.’ The regional organization has previously been honored seven times with similar designations during its history.
