    Why Economic Development Teams Love Boardroom Insiders

    January 11, 2011
    The competition between states looking to woo businesses seeking headquarters and factory sites is intense. Economic development is a major part of every governor's agenda. How can your state gain a competitive edge?

    Economic development pros tell us that relationship building--and knowing their audience--is key. Knowledge of a company's strategy and pain points is a good starting point for crafting a pitch that speaks directly to an organization's particular needs. And it doesn't hurt to know something about an executive's background (hometown and alma mater), passions (tennis or golf) and priorities (sustainability, onshoring, data center builds, plant expansions).

    Boardroom Insiders can be your secret weapon, giving you in-depth information on corporate decision makers–-and a competitive edge over neighboring states. In fact, among our first customers is the great state of Virginia, which uses Boardroom Insiders to research new opportunities. "I find that Boardroom Insiders has become my first 'go-to' place when I am looking for information on executives," says Meredith Randall, who works in Business Development for the Virginia Economic Development Department. "I really appreciate the service you provide."
