“I have had the opportunity to work with Barry and his team on numerous occasions. He has always been extremely insightful, exceedingly professional, courteous, timely and most responsive.
Here in Florida and traveling to other countries, Barry has delivered the goods and contributed the valuable research and advice on complex and not always clear topics. His research skills are impeccable and his ability to apply his findings leads to an in-depth understanding of the topic he is asked to address.
— Stuart Rogel, President CEO Tampa Bay Partnership
State-to-state combat for high-quality jobs and employers is at an all-time high. Not only are billions of dollars at stake, the economic foundation of entire regions hang in the balance.
MEG’s been an experienced, strategic partner in making the right moves in the high-stakes relocation and retention market since 1977.
Flash forward to the present, when we teamed up with long-time client, The Tampa Bay Partnership (TBP). Our joint mission? Develop a comprehensive, research-based strategy to target the Applied Medicine & Human Performance Market.
During our research, MEG uncovered the one key thing that highly influences where a company chooses to relocate. Information that let the TBP hit the “sweet spot” in all of their messaging.
The spectacular results? In less than three months, the TBP lured nearly 2,000 new, high-paying, low-energy, “clean” jobs to the region – and the numbers keep growing. Now, the eight-county region is the #1 job producing region in Florida!
Up next? MEG is partnering with The Tampa Bay Partnership to help build their Export Business, create a new High Tech corridor, and help them keep the Rays.
Isn’t that the kind of big-picture thinking and quick payback you need? We thought so. Find out how MEG can help turbo-charge job growth in your region.
