TOP 50

It is a true honor of ours to work alongside many men and women that are remarkable economic developers and leaders. We are thrilled to announce to you the 2022 North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers! Each year we ask our robust site selector community and economic development partners to nominate individuals that they feel are top-notch and worthy of the title “Top 50 Economic Developer;” these are the names that surfaced.

Each 2022 Top 50 recipient will be individually featured on our selected social media channels of Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. Each winner will share their expertise in the field and some leadership insights they’ve learned along the way. We are so glad to have the opportunity to collaborate, learn from and lift up these individuals!

Congratulations to each of the 2022 winners!
