Site Selection magazine has named Findlay-Hancock County Economic Development as one of the top 20 micropolitan economic development groups. The magazine ranked local economic development groups across the United States according to four categories, including: new jobs, new jobs per 10,000 residents, new investment amount, and new investment per 10,000 residents.
Findlay and Hancock County were previously named as the top micropolitan area in the U.S. in Site Selection’s 2015 rankings. Also listed in the top 20 micropolitan groups from Ohio were the Wayne Economic Development Council in Wooster, and the Norwalk Economic Development Corp.
“Findlay-Hancock County Economic Development is proud to be ranked as a top micropolitan economic development group in the United States, and to have contributed to Ohio’s success,” said Tony Iriti, Findlay-Hancock County Economic Development director. “With the ongoing efforts of our community’s businesses and public sector leaders as well as our economic development partners and regional workforce we will continue to see great results.”
Elsewhere in Ohio, REDI Cincinnati was named as one of the top 10 metropolitan economic development groups, while Columbus 2020 was listed as an honorable mention.
