Introducing an Enhanced Regional Marketing and Business Attraction Entity

Through collaborative efforts, the Detroit Regional Chamber and a group of business and philanthropic CEOs from across the region (the Regional CEO Group) will launch a new stand-alone nonprofit entity in late 2018 focused on attracting new business and jobs to the 11-county Southeast Michigan region. The new entity will be built upon the Chamber’s existing and award-winning Destination Detroit business attraction and marketing program.

The region’s economy is growing at an incredible rate and the new entity will be designed to accelerate this growth across the region. Business leaders have identified that more resources dedicated to regional marketing and business attraction will provide our local communities more opportunities to benefit from new business investment. This new group will be tasked with improving equity and inclusion in our region through economic development. While the 11-county region is anchored by Macomb, Oakland, Wayne and Washtenaw counties and the cities of Detroit and Ann Arbor, only regional coordination and support will attract the largest companies and build a sustainable infrastructure for sustaining long-term growth.

The region is at a unique crossroads. Global investors see market evidence that demonstrates what we’ve always known:  Our home is a great investment with world-class people, infrastructure and assets.  Now more than ever, laser focus is required on the things that matter to position the region for sustainable and equitable growth.
