Georgia Power's Community & Economic Development team has more than 500 years of collective experience in site selection services.

Does experience matter?

You bet it does.

If your company is building a new state-of-the-art facility, you want an architect and construction firm who understand your industry and its specific needs. If you're renovating your office space, you want a great interior design group who will deliver a fabulous outcome. If you're negotiating a contract, you want attorneys and bankers with the expertise to get you the best deal possible. If you're . . . well, you get the idea.

And if your company is expanding or relocating, you want site selection professionals who know what they're doing. You want to work with people you can trust, who provide accurate information at a moment's notice, who offer world-class products and services, and who keep things confidential - always.

When you're considering Georgia as a business location, you want Georgia Power on your team.

More than 500 years of collective expertise matters. One example is Brenda Robbins, a senior statewide project manager. Over the past 20 years, Brenda has helped more than 150 companies set up a business location in Georgia, involving 34,000 jobs and $7 billion in investment.

"Having worked with so many successful companies over the years, we have the ability to develop a truly customized support program for each of our clients," Robbins said. "We can help a company navigate the complex process of a corporate headquarters relocation, share best practices and lessons learned, or connect a client with another company that had similar drivers or issues. Every client is unique, and it takes years of experience to acquire the depth of knowledge needed to provide world-class site selection services."

This depth of knowledge goes well beyond just our statewide project team. One of our regional community development managers, Elyse Davis, has almost 30 years of experience at the local level, having brought more than 4,000 jobs and $2 billion in investment to counties in which she's worked. Tommy Wade, our civil engineering team leader, has 32 years of experience helping companies assess sites, developing building layouts and helping communities with industrial park planning. The list goes on and on, but again, you get the idea.

Does a team with more than 500 years of experience in site selection services matter?

You bet it does.
