Our Team

Fourth Economy has assembled a team of creative strategic doers and project managers who have worked extensively with economic development organizations, universities, business start-ups, industry relocations and expansions.

We develop broad strategies as well as integrated action plans that can be readily implemented by our clients. Fourth Economy works beyond the analysis to become part of the client team to see strategic recommendations through to success.
