Three economic development authorities form Greater Williamsburg Partnership
Economic development authorities in Williamsburg, James City County and York County have joined forces to form the Greater Williamsburg Partnership (GWP).
GWP said it plans to combine the assets of the three jurisdictions to recruit and stimulate new enterprises and expand existing businesses.
The partnership will market and promote the amenities, workforce and logistical infrastructure that the area has to offer.
“Greater Williamsburg is ideally situated to be home to companies that rely upon a well-educated and motivated workforce. The access to world-class education and quality transportation and technology — as well as the amazing recreational and cultural opportunities here — makes this region one of the greatest ‘small cities’ in the world. The mission of the GWP is to tell that story, and bring businesses that can thrive here,” Thomas Tingle, GWP’s chairman, said in a statement.
GWP is currently governed by a board of directors including economic development authority members and economic development directors from the city of Williamsburg, James City County and York County. David Denny is the organization’s executive director.
