With combined services now covering the gamut of the economic development analysis, strategy, measurement and attraction, clients will have unparalleled access to resources under one roof.”
310 Ltd. President Debbie Kurtz agrees, “I’m glad that the firm I built has joined the Camoin team to offer clients a deep bench of seasoned economic development talent plus a new and truly unique service that marries research and recommendations to actions and outcomes.” Kurtz added, “This not only increases efficiencies, but further emphasizes both firms’ commitment to translate analytics to private investment and jobs.”
