Congrats to John Longshore and Sarah White on joining the illustrious guild. (And to Didi Caldwell, of course, for having the foresight to recruit them to her team.)
I've been following John Longshore for awhile, and he's published a number of excellent blog posts on his website IamJohnLongshore.com:
- Marketing to Site Selection Consultants: 101, 201, and 301
- Site Selection: The Importance of Confidentiality
- Economic Development The Number that Matters, Collaborate Regionally or Die, and Truth about Statistics
Our take: Congrats. Arizona is absolutely killing it (And I say this as a Texan.) If you think about Flagstaff at all, you probably imagine a small town full of gaudy-Grand Canyon themed-motels and the last chance for cheap gas before the park. You probably also imagine that it looks something like the Radiator Springs. You'd be wrong on both accounts.
Fantastic news here!
