If you're an active member of the Quad Cities Chamber, you have probably met many of our staff members by now. Yet one person you may not have met is Ray DeWinkle, our Vice President of Business Attraction, because he is on the road over 100 days a year, selling the benefits of doing business in the Quad Cities region. By going to trade shows and meeting with site location consultants and heads of prospective corporations, Ray is building relationships and educating potential companies about why the Quad Cities would be an excellent home for their business.
In addition to the work Ray does, we also advertise the strengths of the Quad Cities region, and work closely with state and local economic development partners to ensure that our region is top of mind when prospects are seeking a location that offers a quality workforce and workforce training resources, proximity to major markets, and strong transportation infrastructure.
With your investment in the Quad Cities Chamber, we are able to actively promote the region to attract new businesses to our area.
