Thank you for giving the NPPD Economic Development Team the opportunity to work with you this year. Whether you are a site consultant or prospect who we helped with a site selection project or a community who received assistance with data, research, surveys, business retention & expansion visits or strategic planning, we are grateful to have had the opportunity to serve YOU, our customer. Each of you contribute as a leader in your community no matter what role you play. Because of you and we continue to see growth, new housing, job creation and advances in technology at many businesses throughout our service territory. The combination of your good work and partnership with our team and other resource providers means a brighter future for generations to come. 2019 brought several successes such as the location of Compute North in Kearney, Scoular in Seward and the expansion of Darling Ingredients’ facilities near Wahoo.
My career in the economic development field has been long and rewarding. But with any career there are changes. A most recent change is an addition to the team that I serve. Please help me welcome Tannon Asche. She is talented in the areas of graphic design, media, photography and communications. In her role as an Economic Research Specialist she will assist our communities with publications, such as a Community Guide, marketing materials, brochures, maps to enhance responses to requests for proposals and much more. Tannon can assist you with any requests you may have.
We live in a great state with great community members. I look forward to 2020 with new opportunities and shared successes. My goal to you is to always provide excellent customer service with a dedicated professional economic development team.
Have a happy and prosperous 2020!!!!!
