Shenandoah Valley Fam Tour

FCG recently had the pleasure of attending a FAM Tour sponsored by the Shenandoah Valley Partnership. Deane and other attendees enjoyed the sites and beautiful scenery in the Shenandoah Valley Area. A warm thank you to our wonderful hosts!

Deane and other consultants enjoyed a very interesting tour of the regional Miller Coors Brewery, where approximately 850 cans are filled in a minute!

FCG Update…

Deane Foote presented the 2015 Economic Developer of the Year from the Site Selectors Guild to Patty Lundstrom, Executive Director of the Greater Gallup Economic Development Corporation. The award was for Patty’s role in the development of an inland port project which helped bring the Navajo Nation, the State of New Mexico, local government and private developers together in a project that will help create jobs for Navajo residents. The award was originally presented at the Site Selectors Guild Annual Conference in Puerto Rico in February.
