2017 Year in Review

Reflecting on 2017

As we reflect on 2017, it's easy to see how much our region is progressing.

Every year, we design a poster that lays out milestones in the business community from company announcements to new developments. This year, we decided to raise the bar and produce a video, too (click above to watch it). YIR_2017_250px.jpg

These two pieces allow us to reflect on calendar-year results -- and as a region, we were able to attract jobs and investment that boosts our economic prosperity moving into 2018, such as:

  • Owens & Minor's Customer Engagement Center
  • Thomson Reuters's cybersecurity center
  • Bluegrace Logistics' expansion
  • Facebook's data center project (thanks to Henrico Economic Development Authority)
  • Richmond International Airport's strongest month in its 90-year history
  • An investment in additional commercial real estate by Panattoni Development and Hourigan Development

I'd like to thank our investors, partners and stakeholders for their assistance in making 2017 a stellar year and look forward to having a bigger and brighter 2018.

Happy New Year!
