Our Four-Step Process Is The Framework For Your Confidential Location Solution


Establish Project Scope


Site Selection & Incentive Analysis


Maximize Incentives Through Negotiation



Our Approach

CEOs and CFOs recognize they are not experts in location analysis and that their companies do not maximize incentives associated with new or routine capital investments. Our highly skilled team of former public officials and senior business executives has worked with clients throughout the United States on engagements ranging from $2 million to $1 billion in capital investment. Our diverse industry sector knowledge, subject matter expertise, and market understanding––combined with our background in the public sector––consistently add value to your capital investment decisions.


“After spending a few minutes with you I realized why our guys have spoken so highly about you and your professionalism. I want to thank you for considering our market for past and ongoing projects, and we’ll look forward to continuing our working relationship through some very interesting and challenging times.”
