“There is no way our organization could do what we do without our partners.” —Tony Ramirez
Do your partnerships play a major role in your accomplishments? Do you know how to effectively communicate about the projects you are working on? We have all heard that communication is key, but how true is that for economic development?
In this episode, Tony Ramirez talks about the success he has experienced during the pandemic at The Borderplex Alliance. Tony is able to bring in his background in logistics to look at specific pain points in the region and to communicate openly with partners early in projects. This includes the importance of involving elected officials to understand the impact of business within those specific pain points. With nine higher education institutes in the region, Tony also talks about the importance of having a seat at the table where curriculum is made to aid in talent and retention.
Working with two countries and three states, Tony knows how to juggle multiple moving parts. His ability to work with solid partnerships and to do so with transparency is one of the great reasons he is one of North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers. Tune in to this weeks episode to hear more!
