Podcast Episode 52 - The Journey: Successful Strategies and Techniques for Economic Developers with Chad Newell

Episode # 52 of the Econ Dev Show Podcast is now live.


Today's issue is brought to you by LocalIntel.

In this episode, Dane talks with Chad Newell.  Chad serves as President of the Area Development Partnership in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, a position he has held since December 2009. The ADP is the regional chamber of commerce and economic development organization for Greater Hattiesburg, MS.

He recently co-authored the book The Journey: Successful Strategies and Techniques for Economic Developers.

The Journey is a personal guide for the most exciting job in the world: Economic Developer!

Economic Developers open doors to the world and change their communities – one project at a time. A greenfield or re-development project can transform a community with a new or expanded facility to employ hundreds or even thousands of workers providing quality jobs, a higher income, and a brighter future for their families.

This is the life of the Economic Developer. It ties together insights from politics, economics, sales, supply chain management & procurement, marketing, business psychology, and real-life experience from multi billon dollar investments in Europe, USA and the world.

Chad, and his co-author Dr. Hajo Drees, illustrate, based on twisted and intertwined career paths of their combined nearly 50 years’ experience in local and global economic development & business development, how to lay the foundation to generate and win projects cutting through twists and turns - leading to the finish!

The Journey: Successful Strategies and Techniques for Economic Developers Paperback

A useful and valuable source of information and techniques for how to recruit foreign investment.
