A Panel Discussion with Columbus 2020: Economic Development Tips and Insights for Businesses

 

2017 was quite a year in the Columbus Region! You’ve likely read or heard about some of the company attraction and expansion projects announced last year. 

Are your curious about who works with these companies to help them evaluate their options, develop incentive packages and lead them through the tangle of approval processes? Have you ever wondered if your company may be eligible for local, state or national programs and resources? Hear from four women with economic development consulting or practitioner experience at the international, national, state and local levels with a wealth of insight to share!

Our panel of expert includes:

Marti Brenner, Director, Credit and Incentive Services, GBQ

Christine Bustamante, Principal, State and Local Tax Practice, KPMG, LLP and part of the Global Location and Expansion Services practice

Colleen Gilger, Director of Economic Development, City of Dublin, Ohio

Kristi Tanner, Senior Managing Director, Automotive, JobsOhio

Columbus 2020 serves as the economic development organization for the 11-county Columbus Region, working in partnership with state and local partners to generate opportunity and build capacity for economic growth.
