Wednesday, April 04, 2018
A snapshot of the Wyoming Business Council’s 2017 achievements and the opportunities and challenges ahead is available in the agency’s 2017 Benchmarks and Annual Report released.
The report shows the efforts of the Business Council and its Business Resource Network partners to recruit technology and manufacturing firms to the state, help existing Wyoming companies and startups expand, and meet other, measurable long-term targets for economic development, among other objectives.
The annual benchmarks report offers a primer on how the Business Council is organized and funded. It also covers the wide range of programs and services offered by the agency.
“Last year was a productive year for economic development in Wyoming,” said Shawn Reese, chief executive officer of the Business Council. “Many partners - public and private, state and local - shaped 2017 to have lasting impacts to our businesses, our communities and our economy. Many of these activities and partnerships are highlighted in this report.”
The Business Council began the new year by announcing the relocation of the corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities of Weatherby Inc., to Sheridan.
