ResearchFDI, Inc., a specialized market research firm that offers customized business intelligence services for economic development organizations and investment promotion agencies worldwide, recently featured Greater Seattle Partner’s CEO Brian McGowan on their Research Uncensored Podcast.
Brian provides an overview of his economic development career, including his time working with then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and President Obama, to his time in the south heading up the Atlanta Beltline and Invest Atlanta.
He admittedly had to make the most difficult decision of his career choosing to move his family to the Pacific Northwest to head up Greater Seattle Partners. But the beauty and dynamic economy of the region has convinced him he made the right decision.
COVID-19 has challenged every economic developer to re-imagine how we will grow and prosper now and post-pandemic. But Brian is focused on emerging stronger than ever with inclusive economic development at the core of his organization’s efforts.
