CBRE has announced that John Lenio, economist and managing director of CBRE’s Economic Incentives Group (EIG), has been chosen to speak at the Ohio Economic Development Association’s annual summit in Dublin, Ohio on October 25.
Economic Development is a constant topic for government and business leaders; for Lenio, it’s his job. Lenio has been asked to share his expertise on site selection and economic development competitiveness at OEDA’s yearly gathering of business and economic development professionals.
“OEDA’s mission of advocacy for economic development issues important to growing the Ohio economy is very much aligned with CBRE’s goal to help business communities better understand how economic development and corporate site selection are linked together,” said Lenio. “We are very much looking forward to sharing our observations and having the opportunity to learn from the Ohio business and development community next week.
Lenio, one of the founding principals of CBRE’s Economic Incentives Group (EIG), works with his team to identify, negotiate and secure economic & tax incentives for CBRE’s corporate clients in the United States and Canada. Lenio has managed incentive engagements in all 50 States and 10 Provinces in Canada. This has given him unique insight into the nuances of economic development and site selection from primary urban centers to secondary and tertiary communities. Since 2004, CBRE’s Economic Incentives Group has secured incentive packages valued over $1.2 billion for a multitude of companies throughout the U.S. in all industries.
OEDA’s Annual Summit will take place at the Columbus Marriott Northwest located at 5605 Blazer Parkway in Dublin. The event will run Wednesday, Oct. 23 through Friday, Oct. 25.
