In reference to the Metro Pulse article "Strengthening Knox Economic Development:"
The mission of The Development Corporation of Knox County is to provide land and incentives to businesses wanting to locate or expand in our community. We have been very successful in attracting and retaining high-quality companies and jobs for Knox County, and we plan on doing even better in the future.
Many people are key to our success. I want to especially thank the County Commission, County Executive Tom Schumpert, plus Mayor Victor Ashe and the other members of The Development Corporation Board, especially Chairman Hank Bertelkamp. We have a great team, and I am honored to be part of it.
