Dr. Ray Perryman to Receive Chairman's Award for Lifetime Achievement in Economic Development from the International Economic Development CouncilPress Release Released on August 27, 2019
Dr. Ray Perryman, founder and President of The Perryman Group, has been selected to receive the Chairman's Award for Lifetime Achievement in Economic Development from the International Economic Development Council (IEDC). The award is being given in recognition of Dr. Perryman's decades-long commitment to economic development and providing the information corporations and communities need to optimize location decisions.
Dr. Perryman discusses the numerous awards Texas has won for its economy and economic development efforts.
The Texas economy has perennially been among the strongest performing, winning virtually every accolade for economic development superiority multiple times. While there are myriad reasons for this prowess, one key factor is effective strategies and policies to encourage locations and expansions. The state leads the nation in job creation and has had the most major corporate investments (by a wide margin) for over a decade. Incentives are certainly not the only consideration, but are often the tipping point for success.
Texas continues its dominance in attracting major corporate locations and expansions, winning Site Selection magazine's "Governor's Cup" for an impressive eleventh consecutive year. The Cup is awarded to the state with the most projects involving a capital investment of at least $1 million, 20 or more new jobs, or 20,000 square feet of new construction.
