“A key to any economic development project’s success is to work with people that have a deep knowledge base with respect to a state’s business climate, assets and economic development incentive programs. In the project work our team completed with the state of Kansas, we found their experience level, program knowledge, commitment and creativity to be fundamental to project success.”
Leslie Wagner, Director of Project Management and Development, Ginovus
“Kansas consistently possesses attributes suitable for our client’s site needs including quality of labor, cost of labor, business friendly environment and quality of life. Our efforts in client site location projects are helped by the Kansas Department of Commerce “delivering” when it comes to recruiting new business”.
Jeffrey A. Sheehan, CCIM, Senior Vice President, Site Selection Group, LLC
Today, more than ever, owners and users of commercial real estate are increasingly scrutinizing decisions that involve relocation or expansion, particularly if that move is into another state. In working with the State of Kansas Department of Commerce, we have found a partner who understands the needs and concerns of businesses and is capable of cutting through red tape, coordinating incentives from the state, county and city levels. This group’s involvement in our project has redefined the meaning of success and has paved the way for a transaction which is beneficial and maximizes value for all involved.

As local tenant representative for JPMorgan, PNC Midland Loan Services and Philadelphia Insurance, all of whom moved to Kansas, I know firsthand what a successful recruiting project looks like. On all of these occasions, the positive Kansas story was told exceptionally well by the entire Kansas Department of Commerce team. They are each exceptionally bright people who possess the ‘right’ blend of hard work, superb intelligence, meaningful experience and great personality. They convey a true “partnership” feeling with the companies, and their consultants, considering Kansas.
