The community has enthusiastically embraced the strategic plan largely as a result of the professional manner in which Jay Garner did his research and his outstanding presentation to the community. Even in the absence of an EDC executive, our board has been able to implement a number of the recommendations in the plan and people are willingly stepping up to take leadership roles to help us move forward.”

When Garner Economics first suggested including distribution-logistics as a targeted industry for the Dubois County Area Development Corporation, I rebutted the idea noting that our rural location had no good interstate access. Jay and his team insisted that the economic data and their methodology for identifying business targets supported the assertion. They were spot on. While growth in the county has been limited, we have seen considerable growth in the transportation-logistics sector.”

We engaged Jay Garner and his team and could not have been happier with the results. The analysis and recommendations that Garner Economic provided were the foundation on which we built our strategic plan and essentially launched a public-private economic development corporation. Jay’s professionalism, expertise, experience, and candor were embraced by the leaders of our community. The results of our engagement with Garner Economics will forever impact the economic vitality of our region.”
