THE ADY ADVANTAGE
We have great people, great experience, and great outcomes. But that’s like saying that your place is a great place to live, work, and play! All true, but not differentiating. Here are a few differentiators for us:
- We are owned by a second generation site selector and economic developer. It’s in our DNA.
- We track the impact of our work on each project. To date, our clients have experienced tens of millions of dollars in investments or savings and we have retained or attracted thousands of jobs.
- We ensure measurable outcomes and actionable plans. While we excel at (and love!) the geeky research and strategy work. Our partnership extends beyond theory into successful execution of your marketing and strategic plans.
- We work on both the community and business level. This means we bring real-time insights, relationships, and experiences from one side to the other all the time.
- We teach and train thousands of ED professionals and stakeholders each year. We help you align best practices with your goals and resources to support economic growth and diversification in your region.
