Greater New Orleans, Inc. Named a Top 10 Economic Development Group in America
Ranking Based on Jobs and Investment

 

NEW ORLEANS, La. --Today, Greater New Orleans, Inc. (GNO, Inc.) announced that it has been named to Site Selection magazine's "Top 10 Economic Development Groups in America" list. The organization was joined by Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) and the Southwest Louisiana Economic Development Alliance (SWLA), from Lake Charles, for a total of three Louisiana organizations ranked among the best in the nation.

"The hard work of our business, civic and elected community is beginning to pay off," said Michael Hecht, President and CEO of Greater New Orleans, Inc. "Greater New Orleans is now consistently named as one of the best places for business in America, and this Top 10 ranking for GNO, Inc. is a reflection of that regional success."

"We are delighted with the recognition of our efforts to showcase this region," said Patricia S. LeBlanc, Chairman of the Board, Greater New Orleans, Inc. "We are thrilled with the progress which is strong and growing."

In developing these rankings, Site Selection weighed 2013 numbers in jobs, capital investment, jobs per capita, and investment per capita. Over the past year, $3.6 billion in capital investment has been made and 577 new direct jobs have been created in the Greater New Orleans region.

Additional criteria included creativity of economic development strategy; depth and breadth of project activity; ability to generate breakthrough deals; and the ability to properly document the contributions of the economic development organization to actual project results.
