Bringing New Business
to Arlington, Texas
Case Study: Arlington, Texas
Arlington, Texas, hired AngelouEconomics looking for a change. For years, it was a suburban region with few characteristics to differentiate it from the many other small cities in the shadow of the Dallas / Fort Worth. The Arlington Chamber of Commerce requested AE conduct economic, real estate, and labor trends analyses, benchmark the city against its competition and develop a strategy for bringing new business into the area.
After the completion of the strategy, Arlington succeeded in recruiting several new businesses and began implementing a plan for new real estate development. The city has been so successful in economic development that its leadership has received state and national recognition. The Bush administration appointed the president of The Arlington Chamber, Dr. David Sampson, as the U.S. Deputy Secretary of Commerce.

The Delaware Economic Development Office (DEDO) began its strategic planning process in July 2010 with the intention of changing the foundation of economic development in the State of Delaware. Concerned with maintaining the economic health of the state, DEDO engaged AngelouEconomics and Development Counsellors International to identify appropriate strategies to enhance Delaware’s economy and position it for the future through the creation of an Economic Development Strategic Plan.
AngelouEconomics helped me define New Mexico’s industry clusters but then went many steps further with a marketing plan, contact lists and assistance is setting up strategic meetings. All in all, an impressive effort. AngelouEconomics is a well-rounded firm that excels in strategic development ranging from marketing plans and cluster analyses to economic impact reports for recruitment.
