Staff & Expertise

The Economic Development Partnership of Alabama’s expertise in economic development runs deep. But, it is also the tenacious and specific attention to prospective companies’ needs and interests that set our organization apart. EDPA not only houses the state’s most robust data and statistics, but also coordinates with other organizations across the state to provide concise, timely, and accurate information, and insights tailored for each prospect.

But both the state and the staff at EDPA are equally known for service after selection. Companies rely on Alabama to be there for them as they locate, grow, and thrive in the state.
