Economic Development & the Value of Talent as a Location Driver

by Jessica Palm | Mar 08, 2021

Tim Cowden, president and CEO at KCADC, joined Theresa Foxley at EDCUtah and Kenny McDonald at One Columbus for CBRE’s “The Weekly Take” podcast with Spencer Levy, chairman of Americas research and senior economic advisor.

In this podcast episode, you’ll hear how KCADC approaches regional economic development, as well as our ability to attract and retain talent to KC.


“You have to have a vibrant economy to provide opportunity,” said Cowden. “But you also have to make a place where people want to come and build their life and their career … and it's their life first.”

Listen to the episode, and contact Angela Kennedy to learn more about KCADC’s talent attraction efforts.
