Jerry Velazquez, CCIA Executive Director said, “This is one of the ways we are promoting the features and benefits of Cumberland County as we advance our efforts to reach CEOs and key decision makers everywhere.” He added, “Communication vehicles like our new economic development website will help foster more employment opportunities, stimulate higher wages and, most importantly, increase the contributing tax base for the area.”

The new website for the CumberlandYES campaign, which targets CEOs, site locators, commercial realtors and development executives worldwide, will increase the County’s presence on the Internet. According to CCIA Economic Development Director Jim Watson, information found on the website compliments the messaging of the campaign which targets those contemplating relocating or expanding here. “The website tab titles promote the County as being Strategically Positioned for Business and offering A Great Quality of Life, Quality Workforce Initiatives and Exceptional Financial Incentives,” he explains, “Because these are the key areas that people considering Cumberland County as their location to do business ask us about. And we can say YES to all of them!” is now available globally to business and industry decision makers.

The campaign name, he says, confirms that Cumberland County offers the key factors on the minds of company owners or developers world-wide who consider a site in the Northeastern United States. “We’re here to partner with and support businesses in their efforts to grow and expand,” Watson said. “Our new website provides them the information they need to seriously consider locating or expanding here as viable options,” he continued.
