Rick Whittington Consulting did a great job articulating our vision. Their knowledge of how economic development organizations work made them a partner, not just a vendor.
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) November 22, 2011
Rick Whittington Consulting is pleased to announce the launch of the new economic development website for Greene County Partnership, located at http://www.GrowInGreene.com.
The Partnership, located in Greene County, Tennessee, is a non-profit organization that works to promote the area to businesses and companies searching for relocation and expansion options, among other functions.
The Greene County Partnership sought a new website that would market the county’s business climate and advantages, central location and commercial real estate listings more effectively.
“Business location searches typically start online. An information-rich, user-friendly website that has accurate, accessible business data can give a locality an edge when it comes to site selection,” said Rick Whittington.
The Partnership’s economic development website now features up-to-date and expanded data about demographics, incentives and operating costs, as well as information about transportation, infrastructure, workforce training and community partnerships.
New detailed maps help pinpoint Greene County’s central location, which is within one day’s drive of 75% of the U.S. population. A detailed county map also shows the location of roads, rail, industrial parks and more.
The website integrates a new real estate listing and mapping system, and Partnership staff can publish information and photos of industrial parks and available sites, linking directly into the real estate system and providing a more efficient way for businesses to find suitable sites for development.
“We’re committed to helping local businesses thrive and creating jobs in our community. This new website is a step in that direction, and Rick Whittington Consulting did a great job articulating our vision. Their knowledge of how economic development organizations work made them a partner, not just a vendor,” said Tom Ferguson, Greene County Partnership’s CEO.
